20 Weeks

We're halfway there!! More than half way, if Miss Claire decides to come early like her brother. We had our 20 Week anatomy ultrasound this morning, and everything looks absolutely perfect!!! She is measuring right on track, and I think she's going to have my build. Her head was measuring 19 weeks and her legs were measuring 21 weeks. I think she'll be petite with longer legs like her Momma :) She had her hands up by her face the whole time, little stinker, so we couldn't get a great shot of her face, but of what we could see it looks adorable. She had her legs crossed again and she was sitting in a breech position. We also got to see her sucking her thumb! I am just so excited to meet her!!

How Far Along: 20 Weeks

Size of baby: A Cantaloupe

Total Weight Gain/Loss: At the doctor this morning I weighed 128.4, but since that was fully clothed, I'll subrtract a few pounds.
.
Maternity Clothes: Yep.
 
Gender: Girl!!


Movement: Lots of rolls, bunching up in balls and a few harder kicks.

Sleep: Sleeping good!

What I miss: Nothing


Cravings: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches and Cheez-Itz


Symptoms: Back is starting to hurt a little bit.
Best Moment this week: Got some fabric swatches in, so we can look at paint colors. Sold the guest room furniture, so we can't wait to move that out and get started on her nursery. I also got an adorable hospital cap wtih a bow and a beautiful flower headband for her.

Best comment of the week: Nothing comes to mind
.

What I'm looking forward to: Working on Claire's nursery and Grahams big boy room!


Milestones:Baby weighs about 10.2 ounces and measures about 6.5 inches. She's still got a lot of growing to do though. Can you believe you're halfway done? 
She's got working taste buds and is now gulping down several ounces of amniotic fluid each day- that's significantly more than before.
