20 Weeks

I'm 20 weeks (or 5 months pregnant today). Right at the halfway point. For the most part, this pregnancy really has gone by pretty quickly. I hope the 2nd half does as well. I'm ready to meet my little man!
This week:
We're halfway through the pregnancy, and the Denver sleeps as much as a newborn baby.
His testicles have begun their descent from the abdomen to their ultimate destination — the scrotum. And while he is definitely getting bigger (weighing in at about ten ounces and measuring six and a half inches), there's still plenty of growing room in there, which allows him to twist and turn (and allows you to feel his acrobatics!).
Denver's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill his first diaper after birth.
