It’s a…


BOY!

This morning I had my 20 week ultrasound. There’s no doubt about it…there’s definitely a tiny little man in there! 🙂 Today he weighed 13 ounces and his heart rate was 145. Everything looked good, he’s perfect!

We brought Adaline with us and at first she was very excited to see the baby on the “tv”. After awhile she got bored with it and my mom took her out into the waiting room. I’m glad that we brought her, though. It seemed like she understood what was going on a little better being able to see the baby moving on the screen.

Once again he was much more docile than Adaline was during her ultrasounds. I’d really like to feel him move more, but I hope the “laziness” is a sign of a nice, calm, laid back personality. That will make it nice and easy on mommy in the future 🙂

We tried to get a family photo in the lobby. Didn’t turn out too good. Oh well.

Now we’re going to be busy preparing the nursery and picking out a name. We pretty much had the girl’s name pinned down already, but boy’s names are harder for us for some reason.

Well, I’m off to the baby name books!

(The internet hasn’t been working at my house all day. So even though I got home from the ultrasound at 10am, I wasn’t able to post anything about the baby until I decided to walk over to my mom’s house and use her internet at 5pm!)

Early Ultrasound 9 weeks 2 days


Yesterday I had another early ultrasound. This was the follow-up to the one I had two weeks ago. The baby was very small at the time so they wanted to make sure a twin wasn’t hiding in there.
Apparently there wasn’t. There’s just one sweet little baby in there. She had no trouble finding the baby this time. We saw the heartbeat and it was 167. We also got to see the little one give us a few wiggles and shimmies 🙂

The head is to the right and you can see the baby’s arm buds!

After my ultrasound I went to my first prenatal appointment. It’s just a lot of talking and answering questions and whathaveyou. Everything’s good.
Below you can see me at my appointment accompanied by my friend the Bubba Keg. That is the “jug” that I drink water out of every single day…not just when I’m pregnant 😉 (I kinda love water). It always impresses the doctors but seems to frighten average citizens.
