Maternity Monday 20 weeks

Well everyone we are half way done! As you might know we found out last week we are having another boy. We have not picked out a name yet ether.New are both doing fine other then I feel fat. I'm at that point where I am starting to stretch out more and faster. 





How your baby's growing:






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).


Thanks again  baby smiles for the cute stickers
