20 weeks pregnant
Baby is the size of? Banana
Baby’s development? 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 — about the size 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.) (babycenter.com)
Gender? BOY J
Sleep? Good. I have having crazy vivid dreams.
Food Cravings? Mexican food.
What I miss? Not being sore and enjoying the sun. Pre pregnancy I love the sun, can’t get enough of it. While pregnant however I over heat being outside for just a few minutes.
What I love? Feeling the baby move!
Movement? Yes! I have been feeling baby move more and more. At the end of the week Tyler even got to feel the baby move which was very exciting.
Symptoms? Nausea, nasal congestion, fatigue, back ache, food cravings, heart burn, and hormones.
Meditation? Yes. I have also started listening to so pregnancy affirmations.
Yoga? Yes some prenatal yoga a few times this week.
Exercise? I have been lifting weights and trying to walk at least 30 minutes every day.
Appointments? We had our 20 week ultrasound on Monday. The baby is looking healthy and is measuring well. I found out I have low lying placenta which will need to be monitored to determine if I can give birth at the birth center or if I will have to switch to a hospital. Thinking lots of positive thoughts that the placenta is going to move up and I can stay at the birth center. Our next appointment with the midwife is next Monday.
