20 Weeks Pregnant

March 02, 2023

At 20 weeks pregnant, your baby is the size of a banana. They’re moving around a lot, and you may start to feel it. Many parents call it a flutter-like sensation. Later, the kicks and movements will get stronger.

You may notice a dark line appear on your belly. This is called the linea nigra, and it should fade after you give birth.

This is an important time for several reasons:

  • Around this week, you’ll have an anatomy scan ultrasound. This gives your provider a close look at your baby’s development.
  • This midpregnancy ultrasound is also when some parents-to-be find out the baby’s predicted sex.
  • You should start sleeping on your side. This is the safest sleep position as your belly grows.
  • You’ve reached the halfway point in pregnancy. Congrats!
