20 weeks pregnant

How far along?  20 weeks
Total weight gain:  Apparently I ate a little too much for Easter.  Yesterday at the doctor I was up 12 pounds and this morning on my scale I was up 10.  Either way, I gained a good 4 pounds this week!
Maternity Clothes?  Yes and loving them!
Sleep:  Could be worse...only been going to the bathroom about 3 times a night, which is an improvement.
Best moment this week:  Finding out we're having a boy!
Miss anything? Not being in pain when I walk.  I am officially waddling because it hurts so bad to walk normally!
Movement:  Yes.  Soon Tyler should be able to feel it outside my belly :)
Food cravings:  chocolate milk still
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really
Gender prediction:  Well, I think we can get rid of this one.  Yes, I was wrong :)
Labor signs:  No
Happy or Moody most of the time:  I was happy this week.  Between Easter and looking forward to our ultrasound, how could I not be?
Looking forward to: Agreeing on a name.  We drove to get gas and a car wash tonight and discussed tons of names.  I decided that boy names aren't as fun as girl names.  Maybe I'm just sad because I was in love with a girl's name, haha.

Most of you are friends with me on Facebook so you saw my announcement yesterday that we were having a boy.  For those of you who aren't my Facebook friend, WE'RE HAVING A BOY!  :)  And we decided to get a few balloons to celebrate.  We didn't have anyone to take a picture of the three of us so we had to do separate pictures.

We are so excited for our little boy to join our family.  And I'm ready to start shopping for some cute boy stuff :)

Kyla was sporting her cute Big Sister shirt from Shawna at Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!  Check out her Etsy shop here.  She's on a little vacation now, but her shop will open again soon.  I can't wait to have her create something cute for our little guy :)


  1. I'm so excited for you guys!! I felt that way last time about the name. We had a boy name first last time and it was almost making me want a boy because I was excited to use the name. But then we came up with a girl name we loved even more, and it all worked out. You guys will do the same I'm sure!!! Once you decide on a name you should have me make him a personalized shirt---ya know, so I can find out the name before everyone else LOL :-)

    And if I ever have a boy you will need to sell me on the boy clothes thing, so I look forward to seeing what you buy!!!

  2. Okay, you seriously just made me feel so much better! I too gained 4 lbs. this week and was almost embarrassed to share it, especially since I am up to 10 and am only 15 lbs. along! Yikes! I think I will be gaining more this time than with my other two! :)

    I am SO excited for you guys! I know I have told you like 3 times now, but I AM! :)

  3. Congrats again. When I was prego with #2 we had a boy name picked out right away & it took us almost my whole pregnancy to pick Keira's name. I'm happy for you guys

  4. @ Bri and Amy....don't feel bad, I was up 7 last month and now going into the final two months which is always guranteed steady weight gain! Easter candy is the enemy! Hope you are all feeling well! -Dana G

  5. boys names from a gas station and car wash experience?....umh Dino Kattre, Shelldon Kattre, Exonicus Kattre, Mobilicious Kattre, BP (for Brian Phillip) Kattre, Phillips Kattre, Citgoman Kattre, KT (Kwik Trip) Kattre, Quick Stop Kattre, Scrub Adub Kattre, Marathon Kattre, Petro Kattre, Premium Kattre, Full Service Kattre, Amoco Kattre, Cenex Kattre, Speedway Kattre, Stop Ngo Kattre, Superamerican Kattre, Holiday Kattre, Standard Kattre, Clark Kattre.
    Personally I am leaning toward Mobilicous or Clark!
    Congrats on the little boy.

  6. Yayyyyy! boys are such a blast... get ready, because they are completely different from girls. All the cutesy things you can do with K are no longer going to be possible! LOL.
    You''re right... boy names are sooooo hard, because they're usually really generic sounding. We had a really hard time picking out our 2nd's name bc of that. It'll come to you though.
    So happy for you guys!
