Okay so I'm not there personally but I know we're going to start transitioning to the second half of our pregnancies over the next month.
July 14th marks 20 weeks 0 days for those due December 1st and even though normal pregnancy is 38-42 weeks 20 is a good halfway point IMO.

I say lets celebrate as we all pass this awesome milestone in our pregnancies!!

I'm due Dec 5th, so not too much longer til half way. Although, I always go late, so really 21 weeks would be more like half way. Or 20 weeks and 5 days or something hehe but let's not get too technical about it.

18 weeks tomorrow. I too count 20 weeks as the "50% loaded" point.
My DD came at 38 weeks to the day so I am hoping for the same with this jellybean. EDD is 12/15 and I would love for it to come sooner, like at 38 weeks.

Hey if you want to get technical we're not even "pregnant" for the first two weeks of our pregnancy, lol.

Yeah, I always thought that is really weird. How you are already 2 weeks along when you haven't even conceived yet.

Yeah, I was thinking about that too as I typed it. But hey, if it feels good to say 20 weeks is half way, then darn it I'm gonna say it!

I am 20 weeks now!! It is so exciting!!
for some reason I am feeling sick again?? throwing up randomly and just general yuckyness. I have not been eating very well, cause I have reflux and it is killing me. I had 2 naps today because I did NOT sleep last night. I was up every hour peeing or drinking milk or taking tums. I went to the dr today, I couldn't stand it anymore, and got some pills. I can't wait to eat again

20 weeks seems like forever away for me even though I'm 18.5 wks now. I agree though with FSG 'cause I usually have long growing babies so my halfway point won't really count in my mind until 21 wks! I don't know why, but I will be so happy when I hit 20 wks. I guess we should start working on names since it always takes us forever to pick one. That is the only thing I'm really anxious about!

Im finally half-way!!! woohoo!! And we just got to find out the sex at our anatmony sono yesterday! We are...

TEAM BLUE

Im a little nervous about being the mother of a son. I really cannot imagine it. I hope I do a good job. DH is freaking ecstatic. I dont think either of us knew how proud he would be. Boys are still super prized in his culture. I dont think he realized how ingrained that is in him, until we saw the u/s.

So excited to be half way done and know what color clothing I can start buying!!!

Lauren , DH , DD 02/2007 and expecting #2 (12/7/10)! We

I am almost 18 weeks. Just starting to show. Excited to be 20 weeks. It was the time I picked to tell everyone at work. It is getting hard to keep my mouth shut!!I have told a few coworkers I'm close to. I'm almost ready for everyone to know. That is what the 20 week mark will mean to me, that and hopefully I will be showing more by then. Getting ready for a bigger bump.

I am so tempted to call HALF WAY on Wednesday when I will be 19 weeks because DD was born at 38 weeks on the dot. My work schedule/pace is just as busy as it was when DD came along so I doubt I will be overdue.

I've officially started to freak out about nearing the half-way point (18 weeks tomorrow)!

I've done nothing to prepare for this baby, other than starting the big kids' school year early. No, wait. I did declutter the space next to my bed for a bassinet/laundry holder, lol. And I've written a list that I haven't put any check marks on yet.

The first half of this pregnancy was so rocky that I thought I'd be thrilled about this stage. Instead, I think I may be going through another bout of denial, lol.

I will be at the 20 week mark come tuesday the 27th and that's also the day we have our "big" u/s!!! I'm nervous and excited all at the same time to finally be at this point. (seeing as a year ago i never thought this day would ever come...well, okay 2 years ago i felt the same way too!!!) Tuesday is mine and DH's 3 yr ann of our first date and I think it's took cool that we are having an u/s done that day!!! We've wanted kids since we got together and we have done nothing to prevent having one the entire time we've been together. It made me sad the day i knew i was going to have to go on fertility treatments to ever accomplish something I had already done on my own once (while i was on birth control at that) so i was a little discouraged! Things are looking up now though...and that makes me happy!! I'm tired of hurting in my lower back and hips right now though but i'm carrying this one very low right now...maybe it will get a little better as i get further along..though i doubt it!!! LOL


I hope that everyone is doing well!!!!

I am 18.5 weeks today which is my unofficial half way Our 4 kids were all born between 36.5 and 38 weeks at good healthy weights, 7.12, 7.10, 8.2 and 7lbs
So I consider myself halfway there
Now I would just love to start feeling a bit more movement, I am pretty sure I must have an anterior placenta this time since I am feeling very limited movement!

20.5 weeks and DS was born at 38 weeks, so I feel like I'm over the hump definitely. But I've got these wierd conflicting feelings of wanting more time to get organized and wanting it to be over already so I can quit having achy hips and congestion and headaches, etc.
