Pregnancy Update: Week 20


IMG_20130304_113133_26920 weeks!

Our sweet baby is about ten inches long (from head to heel) and
weighs about ten and a half ounces.  He is
swallowing a lot, practicing for digesting food later.  His taste buds
are now developed!

Biggest news since my last post?  We found out our baby’s gender!! 😀

It’s so amazing to be close to halfway done!  (ACOG [American Congress
of Obstetricians and Gynecologists] says
full-term is 42 weeks.)  Can’t believe how
quickly time is flying!

Remember how in my last post I asked our little one to start
moving?  A week later, when I was 17 weeks
to the day, he did!!!  I had just woken up and was lying in bed
when I felt it…just a few repetitive taps on my left side.
The Pilot was still sleeping, but I quickly woke him up!  Our son
moves quite a bit!  I usually feel him at least once a day.  I love it!!
I can even see my tummy jump from the outside.  Makes my heart
so happy to feel/see him move!

Felt my first Braxton Hicks contraction a few days ago as well!
Definitely a unique feeling…that and baby kicking my bladder!

I’m also now showing enough that people know I’m pregnant…
not just pudgy.  😉  I finally had one person ask if I was pregnant…
and at least one other person just assume I was.  Makes me smile
so big!  Not at all ashamed of my baby bump.  😀 😀

So thankful that all my aversions are still gone.  I keep craving
grapes and strawberries.  So good!!  And they satisfy my
sugar cravings, which is also a great bonus!

Dear Son,
We love you!!  It makes Mommy and Daddy

smile so big to see and feel your kicks.  We are so 
excited to see your face in only a few months!  God has 
such great things planned for you…and you are already
such a blessing to us!

  1. Wow, time does fly past! And I’m glad ACOG says full-term is 42 weeks now… feels like there’s huge pressure to “deliver” at 40 weeks. I’m “past due” now and waiting… 🙂 but my midwife is great so sometime here soon, we’ll meet our baby.

  2. How exciting!! Congratulations on having a sweet boy. I’ve been blessed with 2 and they are so much fun!

    Aren’t those kicks so special? I never tire of feeling Baby move. 🙂
