20 Weeks! Halfway done!

This week has been lots of fun for us.  Since classes have ended for the semester, Faith and I baked Christmas cookies and we all went to French Lick to look at all of the Christmas decorations.










I plan on doing much more Christmas baking!  I love baking goodies during the holidays!  I’m glad I can enjoy some leisure time with my family during Christmas before my final semester starts :)

We are all still doing well.  However, last week Aaron AND Faith both got sick again!  Aaron took another dose of antibiotics and Faith was having bad chest congestion, wheezing, coughing and sneezing.  I gave her some allergy medication and Tylenol for her sore throat.  Aaron and Faith are feeling better now.  This cold lasted only a few days for them… the way a cold should be… just a few days long!  That last cold we all had lasted for over a month!  I pray I never get a cold like that again.

Baby girl is moving around like crazy!  Kicking me and doing flips.  Aaron and Faith still haven’t felt her yet, but I think it will only be a matter of days now and they’ll feel her movements :)

Next Monday will be the ultrasound to check the anatomy of the baby!  Can’t wait to see her little face! :)

What baby looks like at 20 weeks…


Baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. She’s also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — about the size of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby’s legs are curled up against her torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of her head to her bottom — the “crown to rump” measurement. After 20 weeks, she’s measured from head to toe.) She’s swallowing more these days, which is good practice for her digestive system. She’s also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in her bowels, and you’ll see it in her first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery). Your baby is truly starting to experience the world around her, limited though it may be. Her brain has been working overtime to develop the nerve centers dedicated to her senses. As they come alive, she’s more responsive to your activity, sounds in the environment, and even the taste of the amniotic fluid.
