baby Q bump watch - week 20 [half baked!]

WOOHOO! we are officially HALF BAKED today, which means that we are halfway through the pregnancy. it also means we still have a loooong 20 weeks to go. 

also? BELLY. no denying that there's a little pickle in there now! 

don't mind the Bear blur at the bottom. he's nosy. 

how far along? 
20 weeks. 

how big is the baby? 
Ronin is now the size of a cantaloupe (whaaaaat?!) he is measuring about 6.5 inches long and weighs about 10.2 ounces. he is gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid a day and he has working taste buds. 

total weight gain: 
ugh, I seriously have no idea what's going on. I stepped on the scale last night and I was DOWN 2lbs again. I guess he's taking all the weight, but it still makes me feel like I'm not doing something right. 

eh, on and off. sometimes I just have a hard time staying asleep. other times, I can't get comfortable. I will be buying a body pillow soon. 

best moment of the week: 
finding out that little baby Ronin Q is super healthy (and has a weenis!) at our anatomy scan. I still can't believe he's a boy, but I couldn't be more thrilled. also, I felt movement last week for the first time (from the inside). I can't wait for Sean to be able to feel it on the outside. 

food cravings: 
pickles. this kid will be nicknamed after my ridiculous craving. 

food aversions: 
nothing at all.

the same old pelvic pain and constipation.

gender sex: 
BOY! :D 

most looking forward to: 
feeling him squirm around in there some more! he's been lazy lately. I'm also starting to look at different nursery ideas now that we know he's a he.  

what I miss right now: 
nothing. life is perfect. 

next appointment: 
April 19th.
