Pregnancy Journal Week 20

WOW I have made it I have reached the half way mark of my pregnancy is so hard to believe! Which also means there are 21 weeks and 6 days until Christmas!!

How Far Along -  

20 Weeks Pregnant (20 weeks 0 days) 

Due Date -  

December 13th, 2013 

Boy or Girl -  

Bump Picture -  

Baby Development -  
Baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces and measures 10 inches now. The baby is swallowing more these days, which is good practice for it's digestive system. The baby is also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in the baby's bowels, and will be seen in the first soiled diaper.

Symptoms -  
This week I didn't really have any symptoms other then food cravings. 

Current Cravings -  
This week I went through several different cravings. We had slushies and of course the machine was always down making for a not happy pregnant mama also sundaes and pizza. 

Currently Avoiding -  
I am still avoiding doughnuts and orange juice both give me a very bad upset stomach. 

Belly Button Status -  
Still hanging in there but starting to head out. 

Movement -  
Starting to feel lots of movement, but mostly at night. Lately baby is stretching out into my ribs which is uncomfortable but that is usually only after I eat.  

Any Appointments? -  
No appointments this week but next week is our ultrasound and a Dr appointment. 

Any Baby Related Purchases? -  
Didn't buy anything  again this week for the baby.

  1. What a cute Baby Belly you have! I love it! I can't wait to see this little one! But not for 20 more weeks! :) I'm glad you're feeling well!

  2. My donut craving has eased up but I loved them. I made myself walk there if I wanted one though (1.5 miles round trip).

    And I've loved pizza this whole time. I actually might have cried a few months ago because I wanted pizza and the pizza places weren't open and frozen wasn't going to cut it.

  3. You are adorable!! Lovin' the baby bump. :) I had so many weird cravings with each of mine.. all different too. lol

  4. lol I can't believe you just told us when Christmas is!! blech! I can hardly believe you're already half way. Where does the time go? You look so stinkin' adorable! shhh I may totally be jealous!

  5. Aww, loving the baby bump - you look great!

  6. You look awesome! It's crazy to me that baby is 10 & a half ounces- I'm at 12 weeks & baby is only half an ounce! That's crazy to me to think that in 8 weeks my baby will grow that much.
