*20 weeks* Half Baked!

How many weeks? I am 20 weeks today! I am half way there and can't believe it! On one hand I feel like the weeks have flown by on the other I am thinking how will I make it another 20 weeks? I still pray Pumpkin stays put until the very end. My nerves just get the best of me at times.

How big is baby? Baby weighs about 10 and a 1/2 ounces. He is around 6 and a 1/2 inches long from head to heel (the length of a banana). Overall baby is compared to the size of a cantaloupe.

How are you feeling today? Pretty good. I woke up in a fairly good mood today. I feel a headache coming on so I am prepared with my caffeine and aspirin.
New Symptoms? Nothing new really. Still getting some Braxton Hicks contractions. My lady parts hurt a lot though. I feel like I got kicked. My tatas are also growing out of control.

Milestones? On Saturday night I felt baby kick from the outside! I had my hand on my belly watching t.v. and he kicked me! He has been moving more and more which is such a relief. Sunday I went to my mother's house. I told her how I felt the baby kick but wondered if I could only feel it. She knelt down and talked to my belly and he kicked her twice! Babies always love my mother.

Appointments? Today I have a checkup after work. Then I will find out when my next ultrasound is.

Positive thing about this pregnancy? I am happy to give Aiden a little brother again. I just wish Gavin was here with us.

Baby names? I am very stuck on Blake. A new name I am considering is Chase. I just don't know if kids will make fun of that name though.

Purchases? So far animal plates, a stuffed lamb, duckie pjs, a box of diapers and baby wash. I obviously have a ton of brand new stuff already. Now to add on to that I got two outfits from Carter's, a night time baby wash, and some wall decorations for the baby's room. (Sorry if you find this part boring it's kind of helping me keep track) For this week we got some garment bags to wash babies clothes, a boppy pillow with two covers, some socks, and an outfit from Carter's. I am actually going shopping after my appointment. It's hard to find things because right now all the summer stuff is out.

I also ordered some maternity clothes offline. Here's to hoping they fit!


  1. Congrats on being half baked!!

  2. I can finally comment! I have been reading your blog daily and have not been able to comment, until now. I have been thinking of you and Gavin daily, especially on his anniversary. I am sendiing you hugs through the computer and wish that I had a majic wand to bring Gavin back.

    Congratulations on how well your pregnancy is going.
