Week 20

Week 20

How far along: "Whoooah! We're halfway there!" Sorry. It's been in my head every time I say 20 Weeks!

How big is baby: From the Bump - The size of a banana. Baby weighs about 10.2 ounces and measures about 6.5 inches. He's still got a lot of growing to do though. Can you believe you're halfway done? He's got working taste buds. He's gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day -- that's significantly more than before.

Weight gain/loss: Down .6 pounds this week from previous weeks. My total gained is at 4.8 pounds. I ate a surprising amount of cupcakes this week too so I'm not sure how I lost anything.

Stretch marks: None yet.

Sleep: When I was thinking of writing this post all I could think of was sleep. It's been so great! I sleep like a rock! I don't even get up to pee! It's fabulous despite the 7 am wake up. I wasn't going to write about it because I didn't want to jinx myself. Then last night sucked. I think John didn't sleep well because I know every time I woke up he was tossing and turning. I'm blaming him and hoping it was a fluke.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing crazy going on. Food. I can pretty much always eat. Lunch remains my biggest meal.

Movement: Lots of little twitches. It feel like a muscle twitch or when your eye twitches.

Symptoms: Cankles.

What I'm looking forward to: The halfway point! Woo hoo! It's here!

Best moment of the week: So many this week. Getting to hang with my mom. I don't spend enough time with her and it was fun to just shop and hang out. Plus she was a HUGE help in the craft area for the gender reveal. Getting to watch the DVD of Frijole with John on Google+. Finding out Frijole is a BOY. Although I'm only half believing it until my appointment next month when I can see the picture of the "goods."

Appointment recap - My appointment last week went great. Frijole looked fantastic and it was really cool to see everything during the sono. He's measuring a day ahead and weighed in at 11 ounces. He also has a longer second toe than his big toe which John and I both have. Who knows whose feet he'll actually have when he's born though! I've got long and skinny and John has hobbit feet.

How I'm feeling: Great! Hoping it continues to go well.


  1. That's so exciting!! The halfway point is my FAVORITE because you really feel great, it's the best part.

    I love reading your updates :)

  2. Dammit, now I'll have Bon Jovi stuck in my head for the rest of the day....
