My Pregnancy Week 20

Brought to you by
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.

    Hi, I am 20 weeks today with my 6th. I found out at 15 weeks I am having a boy, I have four girls and one boy now. I was kind of disappointed cuz I wanted another girl, mine are older now. This was unexpected and I haven’t even told my kids yet, well I told my 15 year old because she is the rational one. I am afraid to tell my father, my mother passed 13 years ago. I have no real support system, the dad is, as awful as I know this sounds, one of three. I was with three friends, one being my ex also my son’s father. I feel like a piece of garbage right now. I am 36 so I should have known better, I was just being stupid at the time. I guess I am just looking for some support to help me get through.

      Congratulations to you on your pregnancy! I’m sorry to hear you’re struggling, but sometimes out of the worst places the best things happen. Your son will likely be that best thing! Hopefully you’re able to focus on taking care of yourself and him. I’m sure your other children will be excited for a baby to have fun with! I would look to see if there are support networks for mothers in your area so you can hopefully connect with other mothers in similar situations to help one another. Just remember that beating yourself up does no one any good. You’ve got this! Best wishes for you and your family!

    I’m 20 weeks and 1 day and its my second pregnancy. Last week I found out I’m having a girl. well, I must be honest I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for a boy but a lady at the pharmacist told me to be grateful as she herself is asking God for any child. I was hurt and from there, I started to like the news. Now I can’t wait to meet my bundles of joy. My daughter is also excited.

    I’m 20 weeks and three days pregnant with my fourth baby. My sons are 11 & 4. I had a miscarriage Jan of this year. My boyfriend is coming out to see me for a few days. I asked him to go the er with me to get checked. I have being traveling with work and haven’t had much time to get checked. My question is since this not his baby should I have the ultrasound done by myself or have him in the room when it’s done? I want to surprise him with the gender of the baby. What do our suggest. I wanna make this mysterious and fun as possible.

      Hi Jennifer – Congrats on your pregnancy! I believe you’re saying you have not been in to see a doctor yet regarding your pregnancy? Definitely contact one as soon as possible to make an appointment. It is recommended you start prenatal care as early as possible in your pregnancy. Best wishes!

    I have a question. Is it normal that my baby weighs about 13 ounces at 19 weeks?

    • Profile photo of Megan KlayEditor Megan Klay says:

      Hi Samantha – While there is an average, baby weight can certainly vary. Give your doctor’s office a call to discuss or bring your concern up at your next visit. Best wishes!

    My 20 week check up is tomorrow morning and I get to schedule my ultra sound to find out the sex. My doctor only gives ultra sounds on Mondays for some reason, so I will be able to find out the sex either this coming Monday or the following. Hopefully it’s this coming Monday!!

    • Profile photo of Nancy Nancy says:

      It’ll be okay just be honest with the guy that you feel comfortable with and if he’s a good man he’ll stay with you no matter what don’t stress over it so baby doesn’t get all that bad emotions cheer up you’re going to be a mommy 🙂

    • Profile photo of Lindsey Lindsey says:

      It’s ok that you don’t know who the biological father is, I don’t know who my daughters father is, she is 2 now and one of the 3 possible father has been with us since I found out I was pregnant with her, he doesn’t care if she’s not biologically his, she is still his baby, and now I’m 20 weeks pregnant with his twins. So you’ll be ok, just be honest with the man you would like to be with and share this part of your life with!!
