20 weeks

18 Sep

20 weeks! Half-way there! Woo-hoo! Baby’s around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel – apparently starting from 20 weeks, they start counting the full length, finally – I guess the curled legs are easier to measure when baby is that big?

Lost most of the weight I gained due to bad constipation problems, so not as worried about my weight as I was (I was half-expecting to be put on a strict diet next time I see my ob-gyn – so this worry is off the table, at least for now).

Bought knock-off Uggs today at Winners – they’re swede with ship-skin insides, so soft! And I bet they should fit me just fine in winter even if my feet get all swollen.

Bought a cute sweater-dress with draw-stringed imperial waist. I feel like I need a waist somewhere or I am starting to look just formlessly big, I don’t like it.

Talked to my friend about turning my winter coat into a pregnancy-friendly one. I found the idea online: sew an insert for the front of the coat with two zippers, one to attach the insert to the left side zipper of the coat, the other – to the right-side zipper. Most women can borrow their husband’s coats, but my hubby is so skinny…

My friend also told me she’s going to give me a basket of all the proved-and-true lotions, creams and soaps (she has 2 daughters so she knows what to buy/not to buy) – so excited! I felt the task of researching these things on top of all the strollers and cribs quite daunting.

Great day πŸ™‚
