Week 20- Half Way

This week marks HALF WAY through this pregnancy. WHAT? Are you joking me? I feel like I was just counting down the days to make it to five weeks, then six weeks, and now I am at 20 weeks. After today, there will be more days behind us than there are in front of us. 140 days doesn’t seem like very long at all!

At 20 weeks, the baby is about the size of a cantaloupe or the length of a banana. That seems huge to me, I can’t imagine a baby that size just chillin out in my uterus right now. The baby weighs about 11 ounces and measures 7 inches long from head to rump, or 10 inches long from head to heel. (!!) This baby girl has fully formed ovaries complete with 7 million eggs. No wonder I have been tired lately. The babies skin is becoming more thick, and her hair is starting to grow in. (Well, we hope.)

When I was looking at the calendar yesterday I realized that *gasp* we have a baby coming in 14o ish days. Suddenly I was overwhelmed with all of the things we need to do before this baby comes- find housing, move, complete a nursery, go to Disneyland, travel to Europe, become instantly rich, get in really great shape. Ok, so only a few of those are must-dos before the baby arrives, but it certainly put things in perspective. I’m sure all mom-to-be’s feel this way at some point in their pregnancy.

We still haven’t made much progress in the name department. We probably should get on that… I am still feeling very good overall- in fact, sometimes I forget that I am pregnant I definitely feel more of a baby bump, and I will post a picture as soon as I can get a sister photographer up here. (I love you, Jazz)

My life in numbers:

-140 days until Baby Sorensen is due
-37 days until Jazz and I head to Hawaii with my family
-9 days until my besties from California visit
