My Pregnancy Week 20

Pregnancy Week 20

Your baby is now about the length of a cantaloupe. Can you believe it? She is now around 6 ½ inches long, and weighs almost 10 1/2 ounces! If you are having twins, they are each about seven and a half inches long, and weigh close to one pound each.

Your baby can also hear sounds. At 20 weeks, he can cover his ears with his hands if the sounds are too loud, and he may even “jump” inside your womb if any sounds startle him. The hair on his scalp is also growing.

She is also moving around a lot inside you. Remember, if this is your first pregnancy, or if you have a larger frame, you may not yet feel these movements. If you haven’t felt anything yet, you should in the coming weeks. Many times, these first movements are described as a flutter, or may feel like bubbles or gas. If you can feel your baby moving and shifting inside of you this week, you may be becoming aware of her sleep cycles.

    I haven’t felt my baby move yet, sadly! But, I have a very large frame so I suppose I just have to wait a little longer.
