Week 20

Spread the love

How far along? 20 weeks 6 days – Holy Cow, we’re halfway through this. YIKES! Oh and 20 week post on the 20th… SWEET!

Total weight gain/loss: Yeah I haven’t looked at the scale. I thought I was obsessing to much about it so I quit.

How big is baby? So thebump.com says the baby is the size of a banana. Average length is 6.5 inches. They say the weight is 10.6oz… seeing as though we were at 9 about 3 weeks ago, I’m going to guess we’re bigger than that?

  • She now has taste buds that work!
  • Now she’s gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day – that’s significantly more than before.

Maternity Clothes?  I haven’t tried on any clothes that weren’t maternity clothes other than my gym shorts and hubbys tshirts.

Stretch Marks? Well I haven’t found any yet but I haven’t looked real hard either. I can tell you that my belly is itching like crazy!

Best moment this week? So last Thursday after I had Week 19 post typed up and posted, I drove to class and actually felt Peanut kick me. She kicks mainly in the same spot. It’s soooo funny! and weird!

Movement? I guess read best moment of the week?!?!

Food Cravings/Aversions? I haven’t really been having cravings. I like Nestle Crunch bars but that was prior to being pregnant too. I keep a bag in the freezer and every now and then get one, just like previously. I haven’t had aversions really either, but at the same time I know stuff that wasn’t agreeing with me previously in this pregnancy so I’ve just been avoiding those foods still…

What I miss: I’ve always liked my naps but I’m tired of being tired all the time. I thought in the 2nd trimester you were supposed to have extra energy but I don’t agree. I still just want to sleep every chance I get. I’m also missing my mind! Have you seen it? I keep feeling like I’m forgetting things.

What I’m looking forward to:  We’re actually having our 3-D ultra sound tomorrow so I’m really looking forward to that. I can’t wait to see what this baby is going to look like!!!

Nausea/Vomiting? So far this week I’ve been okay but I’m coughing my lungs up.  I’m soooo ready to be over this cough as I’m sure baby is too.

Labor signs? Let’s sure hope not! Way to early! It does crack me up when they ask me that at the doctors office. They’ve asked me that since the first appointment around week 8.

Gender? We found out we are having a girl although I keep joking that they’ll tell me it’s a boy later on.

Belly Button in or out?  It’s still in but getting shallow and it aches! OMG does it ache! I’ve always had issues with my belly button hurting though so that doesn’t totally surprise me.

Wedding rings on or off?  So far so good, they’re still on. I’m happy about that!

Sleep? Oh I guess it depends on the night and how much hubby is snoring. It also depends on if I decide to not follow my rule of no water after 8pm. If I drink after that I’m up ALL. NIGHT. LONG. peeing. oy! No joke. But if I cut that off at 8pm I get along better.

Weekly Wisdom: Don’t drink water before bed :). Seriously not joking, like you thought I was. Otherwise, every now and then I swear I’m losing my mind. oy! Earlier this week I wanted to ask hubby to put some vicks on my chest but instead I asked him to put, in this order: deodorant, Vaseline, NyQuil, DayQuil, sh*t (although that was more I was annoyed with myself) and FINALLY got out vicks.

Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014.  The ultra sound showed that the babies due date is June 27, 2014. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow’s 3-D ultra sound says…
