Baby Business: 20 weeks

Baby's now the size of a cantaloupe! Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. She's also around 7 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel. Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies respond best to tastes they've already had via amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you'd like your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.

How far along: 20 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: I gained 3 pounds!!!!!!
Maternity clothes: mostly
Stretch marks?: tummy butter to the rescue!
Sleep: I can't complain... 
Best moment this week: Feeling a real kick! Not just movement!
Movement: ^ YES!
Food cravings: Cheese and Crackers please.
Gender: GIRL
What I miss: not worrying about how much Im up and moving around
Milestones: Half way point!
