Meet the Sullivans: Halfway there--20 weeks!

August 21, 2011

Halfway there--20 weeks!

Wow, today marks the halfway point in my pregnancy! It is so hard to believe we're getting that much closer to meeting our little tiny baby! This is the most exciting and joyful thing we have ever experienced!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 20 Weeks

Size of baby: 6 1/2 inches, the size of a banana (according to Baby Center) or cantaloupe (according to What to Expect When You're Expecting and The Bump).

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Don't hold your breath! I'm still not telling my weight, but I will tell you've I've only gained 3 lbs in the last 2 months according to the scale in our bathroom.

Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing maternity pants and some maternity tops mixed with regular clothes here and there. I especially like these t-shirts from Gap. 

Gender: 10 fingers, 10 toes, is it a boy or a girl? Nobody knows! 

Movement: Our baby is movin' all over the place! It felt like little flutters, a goldfish swimming or tiny finger tips pressing into me at first...but now I can feel some bigger movements. Its the neatest feeling ever!

Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty well, but once I wake up there is no going back to sleep. This is a new development that started this week. If I wake up around 5:30, then I'm up for the day.

What I miss: Sushi, having an occasional glass of wine, and soft cheeses. This summer seems to be the summer of the Skinny Girl Margarita (maybe because its been on sale at Costco?) and I have been missing out on it while everyone around me is raving about it. I'll have to wait until next summer to find out what its all about.

Cravings: Fruit 

Symptoms: None really!

Best Moment this week: Feeling our baby move all over my tummy while I sat in a back-to-school faculty meeting, while I drive down the freeway, while I wash dishes and as I type this post.
