20 Weeks~ baby i2

DATE:  May 30, 2013

How far along:  20  weeks = HALFWAY!!! Wooooooooo!

Total Weight Gained:
  As of my last appointment I'd lost 8lbs. total. Next appointment isn't until June 11.

How big is baby?  "your baby's the size of a banana!"
"Baby weighs about 10.2 ounces and measures about 6.5 inches. "

How baby is growing:
  • She's got working taste buds.
  • Now, she's gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day -- that's significantly more than before.

    Maternity Clothes:  Still wearing regular comfy pants and big shirts for the most part. I'm just lucky I don't have to put on real clothes.  I definitely have maternity shirts and a lot of dresses and skirts.

    Sleep: Still worn out all the time. The last week or so I've been waking up for a few hours in the middle of the night then falling back asleep shortly before it's time to wake up. Blech!

    Best Pregnancy Moment of the Week: Our anatomy scan! Our baby girl is perfect! All parts accounted for and doing what they're supposed to be doing. This baby girl is a crazy mover! It took a little while for the ultrasound tech to find her heartbeat because she kept moving all over. She kept hiding her face which made it difficult to get a good picture of her. She did, however, keep stretching out her legs which appear to be really long!  I was 19w5d the day of our ultrasound and she measured 20w4d.

    Movement: I still don't really feel much movement because my placenta is anterior which is crazy considering all the movement we saw her do! I did feel her last Friday kind of tumble/flip once. And a few more times last night, so I'm guessing the bigger she gets, hopefully I'll get more. :)

    Food Cravings:  icees, cereal, water, lemon-lime powerade

    Food Aversions:
    none really lately

    Gender:  our second precious baby girl

    Symptoms:  irritability, exhaustion, sore boobs--does this ever go away???

    What I miss: not feeling exhausted all the time...

    What I'm looking forward to: A not-so-hot summer. :) Wishful thinking!
