Half Way There-- 20 WEEKS!

How far along? 20 weeks
Gender? I have no idea!!!
Sleep: So-so. I've been tossing and turning a lot and getting up to pee about every 2-3 hours.
Belly Button in or out? In and starting to look a little gapey.
What I miss: Shiraz and German beers. Is it sad that I miss alcohol?
Cravings: Anything that is edible. Seriously. I could eat anything now!
What I am looking forward to: Pregnancy massage on Wednesday and our trip to Colorado in 2 weeks.
Milestones: Half way done! Li'l P is moving around a lot more--still no hard kicks or jabs.
Weekly Wisdom: I must not be a very wise person because I can never think of anything to say here. :-)

Here's a little info on what Li'l P might be up to this week (

Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).


  1. I think I will definitely miss alcohol when the time comes that I am pregnant. Sad it may be, but I am right there with ya. :)

  2. Okay I didn't need to know that about what I will find in the fist diaper. . .
