20 Weeks (Halfway!)

Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 20 Weeks
Size of Baby: At this point it is hard to get accurate lengths on the baby. Some doctors measure crown to rump and some measure baby's whole body. Crown to rump, the baby is about the size of a box of macaroni and cheese. During the ultrasound they were able to guesstimate baby boy's weight. They said an average 20 weeker is around 9 oz. Our hefty weight came in at 12 oz!
Weight Gain/Loss: Still the same as the 16 week visit-no gain, but no more losing weight!
Maternity Clothes: I'm still in my regular clothes but am finding myself drawn to lose fit or various maternity tops especially if I'm going to be in the car a lot.
Gender: Boy!!!
Movement: Getting stronger and stronger! Usually he gets most active right when I am getting comfy in the bed at night! His kicks are starting to get way more pronounced and are very visible to the eye now!
Sleep: Sleep is wonderful! Enjoying every bit I get knowing in just a few months that won't come so easily!
What I Miss: Nothing-I am loving being pregnant with my second little guy.
Cravings: Taco Bell, still at odd times of the night-like midnight. And also eggs of any kind. I am not a huge egg fan and definitely don't like deviled eggs, but this week it is all I want! I made a huge batch and almost ate them all!
Best Moment of the Week: Getting another ultrasound and having Harrison there with me. He loved seeing the "tv wif mine baby on it!" The doctor also said I can go back to exercising! Another praise this week is that God lead us to a wonderful doctor here! It was such an answer to prayer and a huge blessing! It has been a wonderful week!
I had to include this picture! When we take the weekly belly pictures Harrison is always close by. This week he asked for, "Harrison say cheese too!" He wanted his picture made! This is little man's "cheese" pose.
