Ultrasound pictures at 20 weeks

March 6, 2006:

Today we had our second ultrasound. It's so unreal to see what baby looks like now. He's growing so much, and not to brag but the technician said he looks perfect so far. It's just a relief to know that he's okay in there. A couple of these pictures are hard to see but the top left picture is of the bottom if his feet. The one below is obviously a hand, and the other two are profile shots of him. I can feel him moving around in there more and more, but I wouldn't quite call it an obvious "kick" yet. I can tell he's going to be an active little baby once he arrives judging by how much he moves around now. They also took a video of the ultasound that we could keep and it's so fun to watch. He actually waved at us with one hand. Okay, I'll stop bragging now, I'm just so excited about it. We're halfway there, and he's going to be here before we know it!

Wow! Mike and I are going to have a baby! We are so excited. It came as a complete surprise, but now that the initial shock has warn off (of me) it's the best surprise we could have ever recieved. I found out on Friday, january 27 that I was pregnant and perhaps 7 weeks along. Then I had an ultrasound that following Tuesday, january 31 (to my request since my original appointment wasn't going to be until the end of February). In the first few minutes we found out that I was not 7 weeks pregnant, but 16 weeks, or 4 months. WHAT!? I about fell off the table. How could I possibly be pregnant when I had (I thought) no sickness and no real symptoms that made me believe I would be pregnant. I had slept through my first trimester and had not even known it. People keep telling me I'm lucky I didn't get sick and all that, but I feel the complete opposite. I wish I had known since the very beginning so I could have done everything in my power to make sure I was doing everything right for a healthy pregnancy and baby. I guess this was in God's plan and the only thing we can do now is hope for the best and have fun with the upcoming months. Oh, and it is a boy!!
