We are officially halfway through this pregnancy! Wow! I can’t believe it. Now that I’m past the horrible morning (all day) sickness it’s really flying by.
So, Monday we had our ultrasound appointment. I was very shocked to find out we are expecting a little BOY!
Here is a picture of his little face. The way he was positioned made it impossible to get a profile shot of him. He was being very shy and keeping his hands over his face, so it took the tech a long time just to get this shot!
My intuition was totally wrong. This is the first time I have been wrong! I thought for sure the baby was a little girl because of how sick I have been. The ultrasound tech was fairly positive this little one is a boy. I’m happy, although I’m pretty sure I sold off a majority of our boy clothes!
How far along are you? 20 weeks, 5 days
Prayer requests? I’ve been really struggling here lately. I miss my husband. Both his civilian job and military job take him away from us a lot. I’m worried about possible deployments and such.
Baby’s growth? Baby weighed 15 ounces at my ultrasound!
Symptoms? Exhausted, slightly swollen.
Medical Stuff? I found out at my regular check-up with my OB that the ultrasound found my placenta is lower than normal in my uterus and part of it may be touching my cervix. I have to go for another ultrasound in about 6-8 weeks to make sure it moves up as my uterus grows. I’m definitely praying it moves and I can have a regular, vaginal delivery.
Weight gain (or loss)? Gain. That’s never a question with me. We won’t talk about how much. 🙂
What I miss…. Mmmm. Not feeling so huge.
What I’m looking forward to…. Finally picking the right name for this little man. Mr. Simple and I just can’t agree!
