What Tiny’s up to this week: Fetal development in pregnancy week 20:fetus in fifth month This week you’re carrying about 10.5 inches and 10.5 ounces of solid baby-miracle-goodness! Their little delicate bones continue to ossify and toughen while their itsy bitsy finger and toe pads are finishing up. Your little monkey now has teeth buds, although they’re hidden beneath the gum line. And finally! Their limbs have reached their relative proportions—no more alien baby! Their cute pink lips are more defined, and might be helping out in a bit of prenatal thumb-sucking. If you have a little boy, then their tiny testes are descending, though they have not yet passed the abdominal wall. What’s more, eyelashes and eyebrows are also visible. At this point, your little one really looks like a miniature baby—and we do mean miniature as your little swimmer currently weighs a mere eighth of their final birth weight. With half the pregnancy behind you, the most significant gains are yet to come!
Rob rearranged the living room this morning for me. To make things easier for me, while I’m camped out. It’s nice because now the boys won’t be tripping over my power cord for the laptop. And I’m right by the window, so I feel a little more attached to the outside world.
Tiny has been moving and grooving like crazy the past few days. Of course, yesterday during ultrasound (when they wanted movement) Tiny wasn’t playing along. Afterward the appointment and today though, all over the place. lol
Elliott Richard has discovered ranch dressing! Ssssshhhhh, don’t tell Rob. He’ll be mortified, he hates ranch dressing. lol I had carrots with dressing with my lunch and he stole my leftovers, which he’s eating as I type this. 😉 He just looked up at me so sweetly and said “Have?” I told him he could have it and now he’s thrilled. lol
