20 Weeks! Halfway Done!
Darren says my front side is finally bigger than my back side. ;) It's crazy but I can really tell a difference looking at my back - it's much wider and more love handley than before.
Shirt down, looking prego. Grady is wondering what the deal is!
We had our 20 week check up today and everything is still great. I've gained a whopping total of 10.5 pounds so far and Isaiah is moving like a maniac. At the appointment he kept running from the heart moniter. Our nurse said, "Wow! He is a wild one!"
You're at the halfway mark — congratulations! 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. (The way your baby is measured changes now.) He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (although some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).
