20 weeks

How far along? 20 weeks – Halfway there!

Total weight gain/loss: +1 lbs

Maternity clothes? Yes

Stretch marks? nope

Sleep: Good, except for the weird dreams

Best moment this week: Hanging out on the couch, watching CSI with Steven.

Movement: I still have to be paying attention to notice it. However, I can definitely tell when he gets comfy in the wrong spot. He often gets comfy on top of the vein that numbs my left hip and leg.

Food cravings: egg sandwiches with cheese (My husband makes the best egg sandwiches!)

Gender: Boy!

Labor Signs: nope

Belly Button in or out? still in

What I miss: Nothing at the moment. I’m feeling really great.

What I am looking forward to: the crib coming in this week

Weekly Wisdom:

Baby’s Development:

“Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He’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 his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the “crown to rump” measurement. After 20 weeks, he’s measured from head to toe.)

He’s swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He’s also producing meconium…” -babycenter.com

A cantaloupe!

“Baby’s digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation… baby’s genitals are now fully formed! ” – thebump.com
