How far along: 20 weeks, we are half way there and beyond grateful. 140 days to go (give or take a few).
Size of baby: Baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now, the size of a cantaloupe! She's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against her torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of her head to her bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, she's measured from head to toe.)
Maternity clothes: Almost all maternity clothes at this point. Has anyone found a maternity swimsuit that they like? I ordered one from Old Navy but the bottoms seemed too small and the top is a little short (maybe I should just stick to being fully clothed this summer).
Sleep: Still tossing, turning and getting up to go to the bathroom. For some reason I get the best sleep when I take naps, so weekends are my favorite!
Best moment of the week: Steve being able to feel her kick. Feeling her move and kick is the best feeling, it's comforting and it makes me smile ♥
Movement: I feel like this happened over night! All that movement I was unsure of before was definitely her- it is amazing. She is most active when I'm hungry and after I eat- she goes nuts in there!
Symptoms: On really hot and humid days I feel swollen all over- it's going to be a fun summer!
Food cravings/aversions: Nothing new this week, still loving fruit, especially melon.
Gender: Girl ♥
Belly button in or out: Still in but getting shallow.
Stretch marks: Nothing new
What I miss: Nothing, I am beyond happy.
What I am looking forward to: Our 20 week ultrasound!! It feels like it's been so long since I've seen her. I just hope everything measures how it should and she is growing big and strong in there.
Weekly wisdom: Don't stay out in the sun too long- on Monday I sat outside while Steve mowed, for about an hour or so and I was so dizzy and exhausted afterwards.
