We are at 20 weeks the halfway point and you guessed it the bean is the size of a banana. He/She is 6 inches long from head to bottom and weighs 9 ounces. The bean is practicing his/her swallowing. This week has been the first time I have been a bit emotional. I have missed my mom a lot more this week. All I wanted to do was lay my head in her lap and have her play with my hair. It was a feeling I haven't felt in a long time, I felt very young.
