How far along? 20 weeks! We've hit the halfway mark. Can anyone else hardly believe it's going so fast? According to the bump.com, my baby is about the size of a cantaloupe, averaging about 6.5 inches and 10.6 oz! The baby is now forming meconium from swallowed amniotic fluid which will be secreted in his/her first few diapers after birth.
Total inches gained: 8 inches, no difference from last week.
Maternity clothes? Gotta have 'em. Next week I get to do some more shopping because I have some great coupons from Thyme maternity.
Sleep: So so so so good this week!
Cravings: Still loving salty snacks. I could eat potato chips all day if I let myself.
Aversions: Nothing this week. I was able to go and fully enjoy PF Chang's on Monday! Yay!
Best moment this week: Seeing our sweet baby on the ultrasound screen. I fell in love with the little hands and feet.
Movement: A little bit more than in previous weeks, but it's still not overly pronounced.
Gender: We could have found out yesterday at our ultrasound but we stuck to our guns and are keeping it a surprise!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Belly Button in or out? It's still in when I'm sitting but out when I'm standing up.
What I miss: Nothing has stood out this week.
What I'm Looking Forward to: Next week's midwife appointment where we'll discuss the results of my ultrasound and I'll get to hear the pitter patter of the heart beat again.
Weekly Wisdom: If possible, schedule your ultrasound at a time that your hubby/partner can attend with you. The dude really enjoyed getting to see the baby move around. Because he can't feel any movement yet, I think this seemed really cool to him. He was especially fascinated by seeing the spinal cord!
Milestones: Being halfway through my pregnancy! I don't have any 20 week bump photos b/c E is not home to take a picture [and I am less than stellar at self photography] but I will get some soon!
