Your Pregnancy: Week 20

Hooray! You’re halfway there! And in case you don’t believe 20 weeks is a milestone worth celebrating, consider that it’s longer than a semester at college—or any relationship you had in high school. Congrats! This is also the week your bambino is able to flash you on the sonogram, revealing what exactly he or she is packing. Why not celebrate with a bottle of sparkling grapefruit juice? It’s not as sexy as champagne, but it’s got bubbles, and that counts for something, right?  

  • Your baby has established sleep patterns akin to a newborn now. Many babies even have a favorite sleep position already. Some snooze with their chins resting on their chests, while others nap with their head flung back. Many babies at this age fall into noticeable cycles of sleep and activity, so you may know before she arrives whether you have a night owl or an early bird.
  • If your baby is a boy, the testes have begun descending from the pelvis into the scrotum. If it’s a girl, her uterus is completely formed and the rest of her "parts" are in development. (Is that TMI?)
  • From this point forward, your baby will put most of her energy into gaining weight and, not coincidentally, so will you! Right now your baby weighs approximately 10 1/2 ounces and is about 6 1/2 inches long, about the size of a can of Red Bull (which has way too much caffeine for a pregnant woman to be drinking).

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I miss the mango, but the cantelope is very nice too ;-O

    • Now if were talking about eating…then I preffer Mango, but I preffer Cantelope for that baby cause that means it’s growing nicely..plus I feel like I am carrying a Watermelon already πŸ™‚

  2. Your cantaloupe looks just like my foot pumice!

  3. Woot, 20 weeks! How are you feeling?
    Hee, that little fetus drawing is too cute.

    • Thanks πŸ™‚
      Getting pretty excited :)hopefull for things to come. I think talking in the deffinative possitive has had a huge impact on my mood overall, I try not to say “If we get to keep this baby” and instead say “When this baby comes home” Just saying that makes me smile πŸ™‚
      I am feeling great thanks. Started Physio on Monday for Pelvic/Hip Pain, she said it’s a good thing I did cause things are pretty messed up in there.
