Pregnancy at 20 Weeks

It's amazing how time flies by so fast and how my tummy is getting bigger so quick. I'm at 20 weeks and 4 days of pregnancy right now and it feels good to know that I have gone this far and everything looks fine. My tummy is sticking out more and more and it gets itchy too. I bet my little boy will have a lot of hair because me and hubby have both thick hair and has natural curls too.

Here's some info on how the baby is growing at 20 weeks;

At 20 weeks he should weigh about 10 1/2 ounces and around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel - about the length of a banana. ( No wonder I could feel him more and more moving around to get some more space).

He's swallowing more these days - agood practice for his degistive 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 (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

Hi Lar! It's true that the baby moves like a worm inside your tummy. My baby started moving very early... 12 weeks pa lang when hubby was on travel and it's time for me to sleep, nag tuyok2 na sya sa akong tiyan mora ug ligid gatuyok. Makalingaw noh? Amoa sad baby moundang ug lihok kung hikapon ni hubby akong tiyan pero nadugay nga sige hikap2 ni hubby akong tiyan kay iyang duwaon ang baby, mo respond na sad ang baby. Lingaw na sad akong bana labina ug mokiat pag ayo ang bata kay naay time nga mouyog akong tiyan morag linog, uyogon sad sa akong bana akong tiyan nya mobaws sad ang bata ug sikad. Ma feel ra unya na sa imong bana kung everyday na jud mag move inyong baby especially during bed time kay mao na nga time nga lihok kaayo sila. Good to know that your baby is doing okay. Take care always! :)
