20 Weeks - Half Way There!

How far along? 20 weeks - we are officially HALF way there - 140 days to go!
Size of Baby? A banana! 6.5 inches long and almost 11 ounces - we'll be hitting a pound here pretty soon! Clay compared Baby W to a 6" inch sub, haha. These measurements are based on the hiney to the head, so really Baby Watson is a bit longer - but hard to predict just how much!
Maternity clothes? Definitely a mix of non maternity and maternity.
Sleep:  That is hit or miss. Between bad/crazy/weird dreams and bathroom breaks, I feel like my total sleep is not nearly enough most nights.
Best moment this week: At the Titan's game this past Sunday, one of the guys that sits on our row asked how far along I am! He is the first stranger that has asked!
Miss Anything? My flat stomach and a cold sub sandwich
 Movement: I'm pretty certain I am feeling kicks, but I'm not exactly sure how you REALLY know what is what!
Food cravings: Nothing in particular really. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: No, hopefully I am passed that stage.
Gender: We find out TOMORROW! I have been waiting very patiently for this ;-)
 Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Not much going on these last two weeks. Tired a lot, but that could be because we have things planned almost every night of every week!
Belly Button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On, although when I go for my walks at night they are very hard to take off.
Mood: My mood has been great lately!
Looking forward to: That's a no brainer! Looking SO forward to getting to finally see Baby Watson. And of course finding out that night if we we're having a little girl or boy! Ah! It's going to be such a super special moment finding out at the SAME time as our family and close friends at the big reveal party!
As always, these "tricks" are not proven to be correct, but it's still super fun to consider, right? Let's see what the Old Wives' are saying:
Heart Rate: High, over 160 every visit - Girl
Morning Sickness: Lasted Longer than First Trimester - Girl
Food Cravings: Sweets - Girl
Husband Gaining Weight? Yes - Girl
Carrying: Low - Boy
Chinese Birth Chart: Boy
Ring on a String: Boy

Almost all of our friends and family think it's a girl, so we will find out in 24+ hours if mama's right, or everyone else is! Please say a prayer for our appointment tomorrow that all looks great, and baby Watson is as healthy as can be! We would appreciate it.
