20 Weeks Pregnant

I am now 20 weeks pregnant. It is hard to believe that I am half way there already. I want to thank everyone who has been praying for me. I sure appreciate it.

20 weeks:

  • This baby is now 6 1/2 inches crown to rump, and 10 inches from head to heel.
  • This baby is now producing meconium, (I remember that from my Princess!).
  • This baby is practicing swallowing which is great for the digestive system.

Sleeping has become difficult. I have to go to the bathroom a lot. Even when I limit my drink intake in the evening, I am still going too much.

Those sharp pains in my sides, due to the round ligaments, scared me at first. Now I am used to them.

My husband felt our baby kick this last week too. I have been feeling movement for about two weeks. He was so excited. When the baby is moving, it just feels so real – such a miracle.

I have been drinking unsweetened cranberry juice and drinking lots of water, I don’t want a UTI this pregnancy. At the health food store I bought a pregnancy tea. I am not a big tea drinker but I know raspberry leaf and nettles are a good thing to drink during pregnancy.

What do you remember about your pregnancy?

Any great tips for me?

      Thank you, Janet. The ligament pains are getting better, which I am thankful for. Thanks for stopping by my new home ;) I am happy that I made the switch too!

    Heather, I cannot imagine! Mine is 4 and she is wearing me out, but luckily I have a husband who helps a lot. We travel with him for his work, and get a lot of family time together to support one another. I am quite blessed! :)
