20 Weeks

Yesterday, I was officially 20 weeks, halfway there!  I had an ultrasound and appointment today.  Baby looks great.  Baby is measuring about 13 ounces right now and heartbeat is 164.  I am measuring about 4 weeks ahead, did the same with Kylie, and dr said it's nothing to worry about.  Baby is measuring a couple days ahead right now.  The baby kept moving away while we were trying to listen to the heartbeat.  I remember Kylie doing that same thing, too.  We didn't get a real good picture of the face or profile, baby just didn't want to cooperate. The baby was playing with the umbilical cord some, that was fun to see. I'm relieved to know that all parts looked to be developing normally, saw the 4 chambers of the heart, kidneys, stomach, etc!

I am feeling so much better, still have nausea occasionally, but not anywhere near as sick as I had been.  I'm having plenty of aches and pains and the hip pain is back also.  It's not as bad as with Kylie, but I'm sure that's because I'm not teaching and on my feet all day like I was when pregnant with her.  I'm finally able to eat normally (other than having problems with meat sometimes) and my only real cravings have been cantaloupe and now grapes.  I could eat grapes all day long!

I feel huge this time so I finally decided to take a picture and compare it to when I was pregnant with Kylie.  I didn't wear the same shirt on purpose, it just worked out that way, maybe because of my limited wardrobe already!  I am for sure bigger this time, but not as big as what I feel.
