20 Week Bumpdate!

How Far Along? 20 Weeks 5 Days (Sunday, April 8, 2012
 Size of Baby P? Banana (6 1/2 inches)
This week's major developments:
Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's 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 his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)
He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

Maternity Clothes? Yep! :) Trying to find a baby shower dress now!
 Weight Gain? 11 pounds... I will know how much more May 1st at my next appointment.
Stretch Marks/belly button? No stretch marks but belly button still half & half.
Gender? BOY! BOY! BOY!
Sleep? Frequent restroom breaks and most nights still waking up for 3 hours and guess who is just a wiggling about an hour of it?? Little man! I think he has his nights and days mixed up! UH OH....
Food Cravings?None really, I am loving air head pop sickles and twirl pop sickles which have many flavors!
What I Miss? Still loving pregnancy...
What I am loving? Finally being able to buy and prepare for our little one! We have a name which I will share at a later date!
Movement? Oh yeh, he moves throughout the day and at night! Best feeling in the world!
Best Moment(s) of the Week and other random updates?
  • I have purchased his crib from restoration hardware as well as his bedding! The bedding should be here around April 15th and I am a little upset b/c it said his bed should arrive ON OR BEFORE July 22nd!! That is TOO close to his arrival. So I am calling today to see exactly what that means.... I really don't want to have to cancel the order! 
  • I also ordered his baby book from etsy, RUBY LOVE. I am so excited about it and will post pictures when it arrives! 
  • We got some baskets and a few goodies for little man's room this weekend!
  • I FINALLY got my camera ordered! It should be here tomorrow! Nikon D3100, so I will be able to capture memories and finally take pics of our home to share!
  • I also ordered a few items and used a promo code from PARENTING magazine and only had to pay shipping! I new it was too good to be true but it worked! I ordered a car seat canopy, nursing cover, and  sling for when he's a little older. If you would like the promo codes let me know:)
  • Got a few things marked off my LOOONG never ending list!!
