Dear Gummy Bear,

We hit the halfway mark today! We are 20 weeks along, and you are now about the size of a cantalope. I just stepped on the scale and it says I’ve gained another 4 pounds, for a total of 9 pounds. I don’t think that’s entirely accurate, so I’ll try again in the morning when I haven’t just eaten a big dinner.

*Edited: Only up 2 pounds this morning, for a total of 7 pounds. That’s a bit more reasonable.

Even more exciting is the fact that I’m pretty sure you tried to kick your way out last night. I scarfed 2 Cadbury eggs after getting our taxes done, and there’s no doubt they’ll be your favorite candy too. I laid down in bed, and there you were – three swift bumps to the gut, just below my belly button. This morning, I think I felt you kick from the outside, with my hand on my belly. Hopefully you try to make contact again tonight. I just had another Cadbury to encourage you.
