20 weeks!!!

AHH!!! I can't believe it! I'm half baked! It's so weird - some days it feels like time is flying by and other days it feels like I've been pregnant forever. I can't believe we're halfway there. Only 4 more weeks until viability day!

Luckily, it's been another boring week!

How far along: 20 weeks 

Baby is the size of a: Banana! Baby is around 6.5 inches long and over 10 oz. His tastes buds are working and he's busy drinking amniotic fluid. Sounds awesome - sorry Bud.

Physical symptoms: Possibly a UTI, but nothing else.    

Mood: Mostly good. I've been getting a little emotional about Baby's name (or not baby's name) but I'm trying really hard to hide it because I do NOT want Seth to feel pressured into choosing something he doesn't love. We hopefully have plenty of time to decide anyway...but I'm not always rational.   

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  I don't know, I forgot to check. I feel the same though.

Maternity clothes: Just my belly band, which rules.     

Sleep: Fine, I guess. Still tossing and turning a bit.

Best moment of the week: Baby was going crazy for a few days and once I was able to feel my stomach jump from the outside! Of course as soon as I got Seth, Baby stopped moving but hopefully we'll both get to feel it soon.

Movement: Yep! It's still sporadic, but it's getting stronger and some days I feel him moving all day long.

Food cravings/aversions: I want all of the buffalo chicken, mashed potatoes, and Lucky Charms. I have an aversion to everything else.

Sex: Still a boy!

Labor signs: Not yet.

What I miss: Beer. I don't give many fucks about football, but I do love beer and game day snacks in the fall.

What I am looking forward to: Viability day, deciding on a name, Seth feeling Baby for the first time...

Milestones: Baby is half baked!! Also, feeling the baby move is probably a pretty big milestone too.

Showing yet: I guess, but not really in my regular clothes. 


  1. You look fabulous!! Congrats!! Half baked is quite the milestone :)

  2. Yay for being half-baked and for feeling movement!! Grow strong little baby! As always you look great :)

  3. Half baked, I LOVE THAT TERM! Ha! I feel the same about football season - all its good for is food. At least you can still enjoy snacking! You look terrific! When you find a name and/or when its time to pick one, you'll just know. We had a list of five or six names and when we delivered, we had to choose right then and there. When we had to do it, it was extremely easy to pick the two we were going to use.

  4. YAY Ana!! so exciting to start feeling your little boy :-)

  5. YAY!!! Congrats on being half baked!!! And so exciting that you're feeling baby boy move around more!! Your little bump is so cute, you look great!!

  6. Yay for being half baked! You look great! I feel ya on the lucky charms -- so yummy!
