20 Weeks!! Half Way There!!

(livin' on a prayer)

I dont think its just me...this pregnancy is going by really fast, and while that makes me ecstatic since Hubbys R&R is in July! It does kinda suck that I am going through this experience so fast.

My little nephew was mine from 4am to about 1pm yesterday, and he is sure putting me through the ringer! I have baby sat plenty of times, and I have never been put through so much in such a short time. He woke up at 7am and was being pretty good...I decided to feed him some baby food and put him to sleep....WOW huge mistake I gave him some cereal to suck on and he choked and threw up, alright. Cleaned it up, and went to feed him regular baby food...his diaper exploded! up his back and into his armpit, gah never had that happen before. As I cleaned him up, I noticed his diaper rash was bleeding, poor boy! I threw him in the bath tub and cleaned him up, threw some cream on his behind and put him to bed. That ended at about 10 am. He is sure showing me what I am about to go through.

Heres my update on whats been happening these last 20 weeks in my belly!!

heres my update from BabyCenter.Com

Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. She's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against her torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of her head to her bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, she's measured from head to toe.) She's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for her digestive system. She's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in her bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

I have been fortunate enough to not have an explosive diaper like that with Charlotte. Pretty amazing. I'm sure someday I will. Charlotte has just about killed me today. I've caught her cold now and feel like crap and she does not want to let me rest. She's so kind :) Yay for the halfway mark! So exciting!
