Bump to Baby: 20 Weeks

Halfway there baby! You are now weighing about 10 ounces and about 6 and a half inches long from crown to rump. You are about the size of an artichoke. You are definitely growing like crazy in there. We already know this but definitely by this point you know boy or girl, but we already know the answer to that. You are working on your taste buds by swallowing amniotic fluid every day which is more than you have been doing before. It's basically just more growing.

This has been a rough week. I have learned that I don't bounce back as quickly as I once did from a vacation especially while pregnant. My pregnancy cranky has been a little crazy this week, although your brother and sister isn't helping with all the fighting. My belly is getting so much bigger (because you are so much bigger!) and definitely making it less look like chubby and definitely that there's a baby in there. And you are getting so strong. You are pretty active at night mostly kicking me on my light side. You are strong enough that your dad can even feel you sometimes which he definitely loves feeling you in there. I think the best has definitely been feeling you but otherwise it was another tough week. Hormones are seriously tough.

Pregnancy brain is a serious thing. If you have ever scoffed at someone who said they had pregnancy brain, don't. It's serious. I have done some weird things since being pregnant. It is definitely something I have struggled with each pregnancy which just continues to get worse because I think it is coupled with mom brain. I definitely have done some weird things like preheat the oven then put something in then turn off the oven and set the timer. Needless to say our food was not ready when I thought it would be. But mostly what I struggle with is finding the right words. Most of the words I struggle with even are simple words that I just plain forget. Sometimes I can fumbled my way around the word and other times I basically got nothing. The hubs finds me very entertaining and luckily mostly knows what I'm talking about. Personally the worst for me is when I'm talking to someone else and I fumble through my words. But at least my belly getting bigger is kind of my explanation all to itself.
