Baby BOY is the size of a MANGO and weighs about 11 oz and is 10 inches from crown to heel. Apparently at 20 weeks they start measuring from crown to heel instead of rump.
How far along: 20 weeks, halfway there!
Maternity Clothes: Not yet although I'm getting close. I have two pairs of pants that probably need to be retired and then a few more that I can ALMOST zip up and are still comfortable.
Stretch Marks: No, thank goodness!
Sleep: I am actually sleeping great. I do wake up a little in the night but can fall back asleep fast.
Movement: I don't feel any kicking but I will feel pressure and occassionally this weird feeling that I can't describe but I can tell it's movement.
Food Cravings: I still really like having soup but that could also be the cooler weather. I have craved tuna fish sandwiches a few times but that is a normal craving for me.
I was honestly surprised that it was a boy because so many people told me they thought I would have a girl and how I was feeling seemed similar to how my sister Melissa felt with her little girl Elle. However during the ultrasound before we knew the sex the technician did a quick profile of the baby with his hands up by his face and thumb in his mouth and I just had a feeling right there that it was going to be a boy. Nick and I are so excited!
The ultrasound went great. Baby boy is healthy and everything checked out just fine. The tech even mentioned a few times that our baby photographed well. I don't know if that means he will be the next Gerber Baby or he was just cooperative during the ultrasound!
And now starts the war between Nick and I on names. He really likes the name Townes after Townes Van Zandt the guitar player. He also likes the name Hunter after Hunter S. Thompson the writer. I am not really on board with either name so this should be interesting.
*Side note about the guitar with the skeleton. I wanted to pin something on my shirt that signified I was having a boy or a girl so I went out and bought a pink bow for a girl and a guitar for a boy.
