Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

If your doctor told you that your baby in fact weighs 10 oz, and he/she didn't tell you that you're resitricted to bedrest and can't lift your remote, then it's probably okay.  The baby is literally a growing shrimp inside of you until the last few months, or the last trimester, where he/she gains the most weight rapidly [and you will too!].  A good book to read if you're really looking to get lots of info is "What to Expect While You're Expecting"... you can get it at any bookstore, Babies R Us, a used bookstore and Amazon.com.  They also have a website that gives more in- depth info than this one, it's whattoexpect.com.  It really helped me stay sane during my 1st pregnancy.
You are fine. At 20 weeks the baby is expected to way between half a lb and a whole lb.
