How Far Along: 20 weeks
Size of baby: Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana.
Gender: IT'S A BOY!!
Maternity Clothes: Ugh, yes I'm wearing maternity tops but they don't really fit. My normal tops don't fit either though. I decided that a little too big is better than a little too small at this point :)
Weight gain: 10 lbs eek!! How have I already gained 10 pounds!?!? Oh that's right, I've had the mentality oh, I'm pregnant, I can eat that! In other words zero self control.
Movement: Our little guy is constantly moving. The kicks are still subtle and small but I feel them more often and they are getting a little stronger each day.
Sleep: No problems!
Symptoms:Nothing really, just a growing belly :)
Cravings: Nothing really. I actually haven't had much of an appetite the past week. I've been getting full really quickly.
Best moment this week: The best moment of the week was definitely finding out that we are having a boy but I'm also excited that I've already reached 20 weeks and am half way there!!
We had our anatomy sonogram on Thursday and I was
very a little worried Matt would be bummed if we weren't having a boy. Don't get me wrong, he adores Avery and is a great girl dad but I know he really wanted a boy. I didn't even look at him during the sonogram until the sono tech froze the picture and there was no doubt our little peanut is a boy! He was grinning ear to ear!! I think it will be so fun to have one of each, although I have to admit I don't really know what to do with little boys. I've always been around little girls but I'm sure I'll figure it out :) We have NO IDEA what we're going to name this little guy... Not a clue. There are a few names I like and a few Matt likes but nothing we both love. I know we have time but I like having a name picked out... I want to call him by his name instead of baby boy, I want to put it on the wall in his nursery, I want to buy him a shirt for Christmas with his name on it. So, hopefully we'll come up with something soon. I'm not going to hold my breath though.
