20 Weeks - 1/2 way through!



Baby Size: 
Banana
6.5" long 
10.5 oz

Gender: 
Girl! Reconfirmed at yesterday's ultrasound, no surprises here.

Knickname: 

We've been calling her by her nickname :)

Baby Changes: 

  • She has working taste buds
  • She's gulping several ounces of amniotic fluid each day

Weight Gain: 
-1 lb from our 16 week appointment! Total weight gain thus far: 4 lbs. 

Cravings: 

Still lucky enough to not have any.

Aversions: 

Thankfully no!

Showing:  

Some of my pre-maternity shirts no longer fit. So I'd say, hell yes I'm showing!

Body Changes: 

None really. I've been feeling great this week. I started at the gym, just walking and light weights, and found that I'm sleeping more soundly, and feeling so much better. Not nearly as tired during the day any more. Definitely feeling lots of stretching of the uterus as it continues to grow. Supposedly I should start gaining about a pound a week from now until labor.

Worst Moment this Week: 

The doctor telling us most likely yesterday's ultrasound would be our last before we meet her in person. (Unless an issue arises or we opt for a full 3D ultrasound.)

Best Moment this Week: 

Seeing a 3D shot of our little lady at our high risk ultrasound! All went well, and she seems perfectly healthy. She still has calcification in her heart, but it's nothing to worry about. All testing has come back great. Chances of chromosome issue is 1 in 3,000.


Looking Forward To: 
Painting her room! We hit up Ikea for a few accents this past weekend, can't wait to put everything together. The colors have  brightened a little, but still sticking to the main plan.

Completed this week: 
  • Picked up the paint for her room
  • Picked up the bedding for the full size bed we'll be leaving in the room
  • Purchased several things from Ikea for the nursery, rug, night stand, hamper, light fixture.
  • Almost done painting her mobile!
