not just an ordinary life, it’s my Crazy Life!
From our house to yours, we are that family… As a mother to many, people often ask if I'm crazy. Of course! You have to be a little crazy with 4 children. "I may be crazy, but it keeps me from going insane."

my pregnancy: 20 weeks
Congratulations! Ive hit the halfway mark in my pregnancy.
How your baby's growing:
Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He's also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby's legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurementsare taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the "crown to rump" measurement. After 20 weeks, he's measured from head to toe.)
He's swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He's also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you'll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).
