IPs are excited, but cautious still, I think. Once we get to viability - around 28 weeks - I think they'll breathe a little easier. That's understandable after all they've been through of course. My next ultrasound is in a few weeks. I always love those moments to take peeks at baby!

I am officially in maternity clothes, although they are still a little big and don't always look quite right. I think those clothes aren't really meant to look "right" until the belly is 3rd trimester big. I am headed that way:
A little bit of nausea has returned the last few days. I know that's normal heading into the 3rd trimester, but I was hoping to have another month or so before that. I haven't had any pregnancy cravings much either, except for meat every now and again (hamburgers, gyro meat, etc...no chicken or seafood, really). I'm also still making it to the gym 3-4 days a week, but this pregnancy's fatigue is really limiting me. I'm content to leave the gym before my workout is finished: "I'm tired, time to go home." ;) Round ligament pain has been making me a bit uncomfortable the last couple weeks too, but that should dissipate in a few weeks, or so I read.
Enough about me (that's typical pregnancy stuff anyway - nothing exciting). Let's talk about baby:
At 20 weeks, baby is about the size of a banana, measured from crown to rump (not including lower limbs since baby is "folded up" inside) and weighs approximately 11oz. Baby's hair is also starting to grow. Baby can hear sounds outside the womb. *This little one apparently likes country music.
Thanks for reading, friends! More updates soon.
