Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. They're also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of their head to their bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, they're measured from head to toe.)
*How far along?: 20 weeks- half-way there!
*Total weight gain: Another 2-3kg over the last 2 weeks, eek.
*How big is baby?: Cantaloupe
*Maternity clothes?: Bought two new t-shirts for work
*Sleep?: I had two weird dreams, one in which some guy punched NBH and I then mouthed off at him and he grabbed me and another where these red spots on my chest started bleeding. Also had one where I was dating Paul Rudd and another where I baked Nutella cupcakes; they were more pleasant.
*Best moment this week?: Amazingly decadent (and free!) dinner at the Millennium for our anniversary
*Movement?: Getting kicked a lot. Mostly after I eat or if I am leaning over (like at my desk)
*Food cravings?: Lack of cravings; nothing ever sounds good
*Labor signs?: Nope
*Belly button in or out?: Put in the PTFE belly bar and as my stomach pushes out it is super obvious that I have a stomach piercing and not a belly button piercing, not very attractive, but then neither is two holes on my stomach.
*What I miss: Energy, still.
*What I'm looking forward to: Detailed scan on Friday and *hopefully* finding out what the bebe is packing (check out the poll on the top of the blog)
*Milestone: Half-way there!
