20 weeks

Depending on who you ask, 20 weeks has arrived either Friday, Saturday or today. According to the ultrasound I had on Monday (just a regular ol' mid-pregnancy u/s), my revised due date would be May 13 (the due date calculated with my RE is May 16) so everything is looking just perfect and my little one was weighing about 10 oz as of Monday. Two hemispheres in the brain, good midline structure in the brain, complete, healthy skull, four chambered heart, fluid in the belly as swallowing is being practiced, good looking legs and arms etc...

Oh, and the baby is a tiny, healthy baby girl!
She kicked me 6 times in about 2 minutes this morning after a few sips of orange juice and I'm feeling more movement regularly, despite the anterior placenta that we got to see at the u/s too. The doctor measured my cervix and it was nice and long and closed so I'm hoping all continues to go well.

We're definitely getting more and more attached to this pregnancy and baby (okay, so we're completely smitten) and hoping that we're lucky enough to have everything continue to go so well.


  1. I can understand why you've been avoiding news and internet for your sanity but it sure is nice to hear that everything with your baby girl is going well. Yay! I hope the next 20 go just as well. Good luck!!

  2. Woot woot!! Great news! A beautiful baby girl, that's so wonderful! You must be so relieved that everything is checking out perfectly. And now you know what makes her kick - OJ - so any time you need some assurance, sip some Tropicana! ;)

  3. Yay! It's so good to hear that everything is going well with your little GIRL!!! I've noticed that my little guy goes crazy after orange juice, too.

    So happy for you!!!

  4. Aww congratulations on a healthy baby girl! Ahhh good time ahead, for sure! Happy 20 weeks!
