1/2 way there!!

Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed!

Here we are 20weeks pregnant!! Holy shit, that's 5 months!! Things are good, I'm feeling the baby move more!! We registered last week at babies r us-oo what fun. We were there for 1.5hrs and my husband was even picking things out!! Afterwards I cried for a second- I'm just soo happy to be at this point, I cant believe that I have a baby registry. I'm the luckiest girl in the world, I'm so very grateful.
Now we are trying to find a crib, and dresser/changer combo. This is turning out to be a PROJECT!! OO my. We want a good crib, real wood that doesn't cost 1,000. Its crazy.

My back has been killing me, and my sciatic nerve is inflamed. I went to the chiropractor yesterday and I think she helped me. I'm going to give it a few more appts. Fingers crossed it helps. However, I don't mind the pain too much, its all worth it.

I have decided after meeting with my ob the other day that we will be having a midwife deliver me. She seemed annoyed that I was asking questions about my birth plan etc. I know its awhile away but I want to know my options and whats going to happen. I don't think that's too much to ask. She said "don't worry about that now", well I don't want to worry about it at all. I want it figured out!!haha oo well.
