Pregnancy Halfway Mark – 20 Weeks

I was sitting at my desk at work today and suddenly felt a funny fluttering feeling in my stomach.

At first I thought it was maybe just indigestion but it kept happening and felt different than anything I’d ever felt before!

I then realized it was the baby kicking me!

I put my hands over my lower belly and actually felt fluttering in there!

It was the most amazing thing!

All that pregnancy sickness I had for the first 16 weeks was worth it for this moment… and the moments to come.

At 20 weeks, I am officially halfway through my pregnancy!

Baby boy is around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel – the length of a banana – growing so fast!

I’m feeling much better these days.

On Saturday I was able to help my husband do some yard work and we even went on a bike ride around the neighborhood – don’t worry; we took the quiet roads and kept a safe slow pace!

I’m craving LOTS of cold, fresh fruit these days – in particular watermelon.

To keep healthy and active I’ve been walking about an hour a day.

My belly is growing much faster each week and I’m finding that I am much more comfortable in maxi dresses on these warm spring days.

{We are expecting 80 degree weather this week – wohoo!}

Baby, we love you so much already!

We are counting the days until we get to see you!

Keep on kicking and being active – daddy’s excited to start playing all kinds of sports with you!

Love,
