Honestly, we’re very likely more than halfway through this pregnancy but since 20 weeks is the usual halfway point, I’m going with it. Just a few of the thoughts running through my mind this week…
At our last ultrasound, which was at 19 weeks + 2 days, the tech said the babies each weighed 11 ounces. I’m giving this some extra thought because A.)This is the first time they’ve measured the same size and it seems kind of strange to me for some reason, and B.) Last week my BabyBump 19 week update told me that babies at this point are generally 8.5 ounces. Now, I know that’s just an estimate and every baby is different, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little concerned about the fact that I’m carrying TWO babies who are a few ounces over the normal weight for their “age”.
As we get closer to meeting our babies, I can’t help but wonder what they’re going to look like. Of course I also wonder about their gender, but that will remain a mystery until they’re born. I’m fairly confident that, taking after both mom and dad, our babies will have fair skin and light eyes.
Speaking of gender, I’m sticking with my hunch that Baby A is a girl and Baby B is a boy. Baby A clearly loves the camera, while Baby B refused to cooperate no matter how much coaxing we did.
I’ve officially entered “can’t see my feet” territory. Sure, I can bend further and force myself to see them. But looking straight down? Nope. No feet.
Last but certainly not least (mostly because I almost forgot to write about it), pregnancy brain is REAL. My memory is nearly non-existent, and my brain, it tries. It really tries. Tonight I found the cinnamon right where I put it away this morning.
In the refrigerator.
