Well, it's here. I've hit the halfway mark in my second pregnancy. As of today, I am 20 weeks knocked up. So, as I did with my first pregnancy, why not start taking photos and doing a cute week-by-week FYI session from here on out (ala Little Baby Garvin)?

How far along? 20 Weeks.
Total weight gain/loss: Only 15 pounds so far which, though I started at about 50 pounds overweight, is still a billion times better than last time.
Maternity clothes? I just officially packed away all my "real" clothes this weekend. I live in Old Navy tank tops and maternity workout pants.
Stretch marks? Does it count if I've had them since I was 9?
Sleep: Ugh. I'm having hardcore insomnia lately. I got to sleep at a decent hour and then, boom, wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep for hours.
Best moment this week: When Melanie lifted my shirt, rubbed my belly, and said "baby". She's not very aware of what's happening so it was a sweet little moment.
Have you told family and friends: Yes! Phone calls and text messages to everyone at the end of January.
Miss Anything? Lunch meat. I love me some turkey sandwiches and miss them very, very much.
Movement: Yep. I've been able to feel this baby moving since the 14th week. Probably because I knew what to expect this time around and also, frankly, I'm less fat than I was last time.
Food cravings: Tomatoes. All angel tomatoes all. the. time.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The smell of dirty dishes.
Gender prediction: I'm voting boy – purely because The Boy delights in being Melanie's favorite and I want someone to love me best! 😉
Labor Signs: No.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy but I cry at the STUPIDEST stuff right now.
Looking forward to: Finding out the baby's gender on Friday!

In other news, I'm doing great keeping up with my workouts – 20 minutes on the elliptical and either 30 minutes of a Grokker video (try them free right now) or my favorite pregnancy workout DVD. Otherwise, I've also noticed that when I squat down to help Melanie, I'm having a really hard time keeping my balance and ahem getting back up again.
