20 weeks

Well, we never got around to taking a 20 week picture! I know, I'm horrible :) Nothing really went on last week either.
Your 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 (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 (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

well this week, not much went on. We are just trying to deceide when we are moving, and finding a house to move into! Other than that nothing new. Baby boy moves A LOT. I didn't keep a journal or pictures or anything with Julietta which is really sad and makes me mad. So I don't remember everything but I think he moves a lot more than she did. We don't really have a name either! haha. Just that we are going to do the nursery in star wars :)
