20 Weeks - Halfway There!!!

How far along: 20 weeks 

Size of baby: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. (Avery was 13 inches... he's catching up fast!)

Weight gain: Probably around 5 or 6 pounds... not sure exactly!

Maternity clothes: Definitely!  Except for a few shirts.  Skeet even asked me yesterday if I was deliberately pushing my stomach out as I was walking across the living room... the gut must be getting bigger because I wasn't pushing it out!! 

Gender: BOY!!

Movement: I feel more and more every day. He is really active. I can't wait until Skeet can feel him move too!

Sleep: Sleep is getting more difficult but I am tired enough to sleep all day. I toss and turn a lot and can't seem to stay on my left side.

Symptoms: Round ligament pains, heartburn, and constantly hungry!! I am starting to develop some sciatic pain as well... not fun!

Cravings: Everything! I am hungry all the time!  This week it has been chocolate and Texas BBQ... which we don't have around here! I could sure go for some juicy smoked turkey!

Best moment this week: This is nothing to do with baby boy, but we got our new laminate wood floors finished this week and they look amazing!  Callie hates them cause she slides all over the place and I know our little guy won't appreciate them much when he's learning to crawl, walk or run, but I am sure somehow he'll manage!!

What I am looking forward to: Seeing our baby boy tomorrow and trying to get my two Dr.s and I on the same page.

I feel for you about the sciatic nerve pain. It got to the point in my pregnancy where it hurt to walk or sit. All I could do was lay down!!

P.S. CONGRATS on finding out it's a baby boy!!
