Half-Baked: Because You Asked

Today marks the halfway point, which seems absolutely preposterous. But evidently it is. I have my 20 week appointment on Tuesday, which I have to go to myself, as P will be getting ready to leave for Cleveland on a business trip. He put all our appointments in his calendar but then didn't consult his calendar when he booked his flight. This is very typical of him. I have to tell him 10 times about any plans we have, and he still asks about the date/time at the last minute. For him, making dinner involves me preparing him a shopping list and reading him the directions step by step. I generally find it easier just to make it myself. But I digress.

Because you asked, I added a ticker.

And because you asked, here are belly shots. I've been doing them weekly since week five. I'm trying to do them in the same tank-top and sweatpants each week (though the top was in the wash this week, so I wore the same one in a different color, and I wore different sweatpants the first week). Buddy is frequently in the photos, though sometimes he's under the covers. Thus far, the biggest changes have been from 15 to 16 weeks and from 18 to 20 weeks.

From hereonout, I'll add one (probably just adding to this post) every four weeks. So, starting with week 5 since I didn't take one week 4, here are belly shots every four weeks.

Five Weeks:


Eight weeks:


Twelve weeks:


Sixteen weeks:


And today, twenty weeks (excuse the visible underwear on the side!):


22 weeks 1 day:


24 weeks 2 days:


26 weeks 1 day


29 weeks 1 day:


31 weeks 4 days:


34 weeks 1 day:


36 weeks 1 day (sorry it's blurry!):


37 weeks, 1 day:


38 weeks, 2 days:


39 weeks, 5 days (the day we went to the hospital):


One week post-partum:

I posted the same sentiments today about being halfway done. Bizarro.

And you look great!

Great belly pics. I certainly won't be posting mine 20 weeks looks alot lumpier than yours!

The 1/2 way point is very surreal for me too

Laura said...

God bless you for posting this for me to read today! I was JUST wondering what a 20 week belly would look like (seriously) although for my own demented crazy reasons which I will not mention here, but seriously thank you for not making me go search out there in baby website land for it. I much prefer to follow yours. :) Your belly looks just lovely. I should hope to have such a great looking belly someday! Oh and thanks for putting the ticker up. It really gives me positive vibes when I come to your blog. Keep up the good work!
