Bump Watch :: 20 Weeks

Half way there!!!

Happy Halloween baby girl!!

How far along: 20 weeks

Size of Baby: 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel & 10.2 oz

Fruit/vegetable comparison: Banana

Total weight gain: 4 pounds (I've gained back the 2 pounds I lost last week.)

Sleep: I've been struggling with a little anxiety and it's been sneaking into my dreams recently.  So I've had a few nightmares that have kept me up.  Other then that, it's pretty good.  I still get up once a night to pee and I'm starting to get a little stiff if I sleep in one spot for too long.

Movement: Her movements are definitely noticeable, but still not real consistent.  Every time I feel her kick I put my hand on my stomach to see if I can feel it on the outside and then she doesn't kick again.  So Ryan still hasn't felt her.  :(  But honestly I don't think we've had time lately for him to even try.

Unglamorous body changes: I feel like I can tell that my insides are moving around!  Sometimes I feel a lot of pressure and other times sharp pains.  I can just tell things are moving!

Maternity Clothes? Yep!  I'm already wearing them out.  Time to purchase some more!  It's also been pretty cold lately and my coats can no longer close so I definitely think it's time to invest in a nice warm coat for the season.

Showing: Yes, but I still don't feel like I look all that pregnant sometimes.  I don't know if somedays I'm bigger then others because she's in a different position?

Food cravings: Still sweets and chocolate milk.

What I miss: I miss not having to go to the bathroom every time I stand up.  It's like I don't think I have to go until I stand up. 

Strange experiences: I pretty sure I felt the baby kick my bladder for the first time.  That was a strange feeling!

Milestones: She has working taste buds, and she's gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day - practicing swallowing and breathing. (per

Best moment this week: Finding out we are having a GIRL!!!!

Looking forward to: Figuring out her name and planning the nursery.
