Baby weighs about 10.2 ounces and measures about 6.5 inches. Baby still has a lot of growing to do though. Baby also has working taste buds. Baby is gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day — that’s significantly more than before.
How Far Along: 20 Weeks-Half Baked!!!
Due Date: March 13th, 2013
Boy or girl: Working on an announcement!
Currently craving: Salads! Want want want. I’m going to the supermarket tomorrow to get the build your own salad bar. SO yummy!
Currently Avoiding: Anything that gives me heartburn unfortunately I don’t know what will give me heartburn until after. It’s not consistent at all!
Weight: Didn’t look.
Belly button status: IN!
Sleep grade: I’ve been needing and wanting even more lately!
Recent Crazy Dream: Nothing I can remember right now but I know that its been getting crazy! I don’t remember dreams like this with Mason but I did have them with Elena!
Evidence of pregnancy brain: I can’t never remember I need to write it on post it notes or something.
Symptoms?: Tired and lots of aches and pains!
Health/Emotions: I’m 20 weeks today! This pregnancy is absolutely flying by. I still can’t believe that I’m TWO weeks passed my pPROM milestone. I thought 18 weeks would never come and now I’m here. Now we have four more weeks until viability. Four more weeks until Baby3 at least has a chance if my water were to break or if I were to go into labor for some reason. The closer I get to 24 weeks the more I seem to worry but there is also a huge relief as I get closer too. It’s so hard to explain.
Movement: Every single day multiple times a day! Baby is getting SO strong. Yesterday I was kicked/punched so hard I actually yelped a little. It caught me off guard and made me lean back in my chair! Baby apparently did not like the position I was in 🙂
Any appointments?: I had one today! My cervix was measuring at 4.7 which is AWESOME. Fluid looked great, baby looked great! I also got a precautionary swab for infection (my request). I will get the results tomorrow. Hopefully everything looks clear. I have another one on Monday for my weekly cervical scan and then the next Monday I have the a/s. I technically already got one at 16 weeks and everything looked good but they want to check again with the baby being bigger which I’m completely okay with!
Any baby related purchases? : I bought some Aden + Anais blankets off of a consignment group I’m apart of and a maternity dress. It’s long sleeved so I think it will be perfect for the holidays coming up. Speaking of Aden + Anais I have a review coming up that I’m SO excited about these blankets are awesome!
Best thing to happen in the past week/ Worst: Best things are feeling the baby move more and more and my cervix being nice and long. Worst thing is being extra emotional. I cried a lot today. I’m exited to be 20 weeks with this baby but I wish I got that much and more with Elena as well.
I’m hoping to get my head in there soon. B is not on board with baby pictures. He was all “you’re doing THAT again? Um yes I am . Don’t want to give this baby 3rd baby syndrome!
