The 20-Week Changes




I’m smack in the middle of week 20, and some amazing things have happened.

1. I have seriously started ballooning. People are recognizing I’m pregnant, and this cute little belly is getting bigger and bigger.

2. I have developed the ever-common belly line down the center of my belly, called the “linea nigra.” It’s very faint, but I started noticing it once I was 20 weeks along. It means my belly is stretching and the skin pigments are compensating.

3. The movements from Lily Bean have gotten stronger and more noticeable. Dave can now feel them regularly, and Jenbug has felt them several times too. I also recognize a bit of a pattern with when Bean is awake.

4. Bean looooves Alison Krauss’s lullaby song, “Baby Mine.” Every time I put it on, without fail, she wakes up and starts kicking and grooving. It’’s the coolest thing in the world. It also makes me cry like a baby. Heh.
