20th

I'm so excited,
And i just can't hide it,
I'm about to lose control
And i think i like it.
I'm so excited,
And i just can't hide it,
And i know, i know, i know, i know
I know i want you, want you.

Singing in the tune of I'm so Excited by the Pointer  Sisters. This is because yesterday was my 20th week or 5 months. I am halfway to my journey to motherhood.I can feel baby move inside as it was called quickening. It's not a paranoid feeling anymore. It's not the stomach wave such as called in medical term as peristalsis, not that I am hungry or any stomach ache but for real!It's for real that I can feel my baby now.  Huny and I were so tempted to have an ultrasound to know our baby's gender but as for today we prefer not to. On the 30th of this month I'll be having my next ultrasound to see for our baby.
How does the 20th week fetus looks inside?


Our baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He'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, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)

He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper.
