We are halfway! Actually we’re 20+4 now, but close enough.
Time for another weekly update!
It’s crazy to think that we’re already halfway, (past halfway really!) and while I feel like October is still forever away, it feels much closer when I think about only having ~19 weeks left!
This week has been somewhat eventful, if you count PICKING A NAME! We’ve had her name picked out for several, several weeks, but just hadn’t decided to fully commit and actually tell people until yesterday and the day before. I think we felt better about revealing her name too after knowing that everything at her 20 week anatomy scan was a-ok. Oh, and she is for sure a girl! Whew!
Adeline Elizabeth is officially Baby Ingle’s name!
We love it so much, and know it will suit her perfectly. Adam actually suggested Adeline back in late February, just a few weeks after we found out we were expecting! We tossed the idea around for a while, and could just never get past it, so it stuck! And Elizabeth is my middle name, which I’ve always thought was pretty and timeless. Everyone has asked if we’ll call her Addie for short, and while I imagine at some point friends and family will refer to her as Addie, I do hope to mostly call her by Adeline. It’s just too pretty not to!
We felt really strongly about not picking a first name that’s currently on the “top 10 most popular” list, and wanted a name that was a little unique, but something that would grow with her easily. We also love that Adeline is almost a little old school sounding, but still so classy and sweet. At least we think so 🙂 Of course, I imagine now that we’ve picked it, it will soar to the top of the popularity charts next year. Isn’t that how it always goes??
Anyways, here are the other highlights from this week! I look super tired in this picture, and I’m not really sure why, we took it right after we got home from church??
This week she can start being measured from head to heel, instead of head to rump, so she’s 6.5″ if we go by how we’ve been measuring her, but she’s actually about 10″ now in length! She also weighs about 10.5 ounces now, quickly approaching a pound!
And that’s about it! Still trying to walk every night that I can, wearing all maternity clothes, and noticing the belly getting a little more “in the way”.
Adeline will be here before we know it!
Any pregnancy tips or suggestions for the early 20’s weeks?
