20 Weeks! and 9lbs Pregnant!!

Well folks, I am halfway there! At 2o weeks my baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. She's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom, and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, we use measurements taken from the top of the baby's head to her bottom — known as the "crown to rump" measurement. After that, we use measurements from head to toe. This is because a baby's legs are curled up against her torso during the first half of pregnancy and are very hard to measure.)
I am so darn excited! However, I did got a baby shower yesterday, of a close family friend, and (I didn't really know anyone -but my mother-in-law, and her sisters and mother) they couldn't even tell I was pregnant :( You'd think at 5 months, someone would recognize. I guess I shouldn't be complaining (there are women who get told their preggo when they aren') but at 5 months, I was just hoping I wouldn't have to share with people why I have a 9lb bump sitting on my abdomen :) And if the hubs WASN'T sweet enough, he said I have only gained 8lbs, but that I looked tre preggo!
7 days and counting.... My gut says Girl? But we'll see!
Oooh! Totallly forgot to tell you. Last night my dad called, because he was in LA (he travels a TON for business.) and was across the street from the Kodak theater, and the premeire of "PS I Love you!" was there and he actually SAW Hillary Swank. How cool is that? My dad gets to do the coolest stuff. When he was at a convention he "accidentally" got a semi-private concert by Journey. I mean, that is just freakin cool! It was even funnier because he didn't know who Journey actually was and thought, this band sucks, and LEFT! HAHAHAHA!

My gut told me my DS was a girl. I was wrong. :)

I'm with Kelli. I've probably gained more wait in the same amount of time, sans baby in belly. ;)

Andrea said...

Kelli: Yeah, i would say this week is taking a really long time to end :)

Lorelei: Hopefully my gut won't be wrong, but we'll see!

Nanette: :D I actually lose my breath sometimes walking up the stairs, simply becaue I have never carried this much weight... ever :)
