Week 20: Wow, you’re the size of a Cantaloupe!

Jul 29, 11 week20-cantaloupe

What a milestone — it’s Week 20! We’re halfway there darling! And Oh baby, you are such a kicker! Mommy had an ultrasound on Wedesday and we all saw how active you are! The nurses were going wild because you loved kicking the placenta like it’s a soccer ball! I knew I felt you kicking all this time. And seeing you in action just made me smile and laugh a lot.

It’s been a rough week for mommy and daddy, but a lot of our worries and fears have subsided. Our doctor is very good and we’re confident everything will be fine. Our main concern now is that you’re happy and healthy growing in Mommy’s tummy. :)

You have so many wonderful Aunties, Uncles, and relatives who love you! We had a lot of visitors this week, all asking about you and they all made Mommy and Daddy feel so much better.

And the highlight of the week? Well, Daddy can finally feel you kicking for the first time! It’s still a soft movement, but he is so happy and proud of his little soccer player! Daddy also loves singing to you every night, although it sounds more like beatboxing right now. hehe

Here’s your weekly fruit size! A cantaloupe? Definitely not a Costco-size one. haha

Baby’s now the size of a cantaloupe!
Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies respond best to tastes they’ve already had via amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you’d like your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.
