Week 20

How far along: 20 weeks, 5 days

Size of Baby S: 6.5 in, 10.5 oz

Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center): Banana

Total weight gain: 5 lbs; apparently I haven't dived into the American junk food enough still :-/

Sleep: Good!

Movement: Maybe? I still can't tell anything noticeable, but there were two times that I was laying in bed and either it was the baby, my stomach growling, or I dreamt the whole thing...

Unglamorous body changes: Little bit gassy... fortunately it's only occurred at home and not in public so only Jason and the cats have had to suffer with me

Maternity Clothes? Yes on maternity jeans. Still using the belly band for my work pants though and no maternity tops or dresses yet.

Showing: Yes! At least Jason and I think I am showing. It's still not super obvious in clothes, but it's definitely getting there!

Food cravings: Nothing really stands out this week. Except cereal again. Particularly Fruity Pebbles, but fortunately my friend Heather is headed to Houston in a couple of weeks and said she'd pick me up a box! ;-)

What I miss: Lattes. I will still have one every once in awhile, but I feel like I'm drinking contraband even though it's significantly less than the recommended limit (limit is 200 mg daily and a shot of espresso actually contains less than drip coffe (75 mg versus 150 mg per serving).

Anything making you queasy: Nope.

Strange experiences: In the past 48 hours I've had five people tell me that I don't really look pregnant and definitely not 20 (almost 21 weeks). The baby is measuring good on the growth charts and I am eating whenever I am hungry. There's not much else I can do and I know I will be showing more soon and will probably regret saying this, but I wish I was looking more pregnant now. :-/

Milestones: The baby's skin is thickening and her hair and nails are growing.

Best moment this week: We took a class this week called "The Practicalities of Having a Baby in Norway". We got a lot of good information about the process and possible options for private nanny after the baby is born.

Looking forward to: Starting to show and going back to the doctor in a couple weeks. We'll get to hear Baby Girl's heartbeat again! :-)
