20w1d

Monday, February 14, 2011

I kind of feel like starting everyone of these posts with "Holy crap." It's something I say a lot and it's certainly the most applicable expression to this pregnancy.

Holy crap.

I'm halfway through this pregnancy.

That means we start counting down now.

20w1d with Baby Love vs almost 20w with Isaac.

And clothed.

$10 H&M jeans, $12.50 H&M belt, Old Navy shirt and cardi.

From my weekly email: You're at the halfway mark — congratulations! 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. (The way your baby is measured changes now.) 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 (although some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

How far along?: 20w1d
How big is baby?: The size of a cantalope, 6.5 inches.
Weight gain/loss?: I'll find out tomorrow. Gulp.
Stretch marks?: None, thankfully.
Maternity clothes?: Keeping them at bay, but I did buy the above jeans in a larger size to get me through.
Sleep?: I had my first girl dream last night.
Food cravings?: A nice salad!
Gender?: Tomorrow! Tomorrow! We find out tomorrow! Did you vote?
Movement?: A little stronger every day.
Belly button?: Aside from the damage inflicted by Isaac, unchanged.
What are you looking forward to this week?: Seeing a healthy Baby Love bouncing around on the screen tomorrow.

Notables:
People keep stating that today is like the day before Christmas and at first I agreed, but honestly, I haven't been this excited for Christmas in years! I don't know how I'm going to sleep tonight. I'm sure it will come to me though. Pregnancy fatigue is no joke when you have Isaac keeping you up at night!
