Appointment #3 - 20 Weeks

We are now at 20 weeks! This milestone officially marks the half way mark! This month's appointment was very similar to the last. They took Shauna's weight, blood pressure, and listened to the baby's heartbeat. According to the nurse, Shauna is on track to have a "normal size" baby (approximately 7 lbs.). That's a relief - no 10 pounders here (even though you can't tell by the size of Shauna's belly). We still don't know the sex, but are anxious to find out at our next appointment on June 1st!

At 20 Weeks the Baby...
- Weighs about 10.5 ounces
- Is about 6.5 inches long
- Is swallowing more

The Bigger, The Better - Shauna's Take on Maternity Clothes

Expecting a baby means...that's right - another good excuse to go shopping! And at this point, maternity clothes are a necessity. However, there are many challenges that come with this exciting opportunity such as finding trendy, stylish, and inexpensive clothes that can cross over multiple seasons. So far, I've managed to add a few items to my collection - even though it seems like I wear the same black shirt nearly everyday. Of course, the cutest clothes are the most costly, fortunately I lucked up at a little second hand store in Alameda on Park Blvd. Paying $15 for a pair of newer GAP slacks sounds a lot better than $60! I'll keep looking for bargains (and/or hand-me-downs) - after all, I'll only be wearing them for another five months...and then I can go shopping again!
