21 weeks

I had my last appointment at the high risk doctor. We graduated back to my regular OB! Yay! Baby girl’s heart looked beautiful. I was just in awe watching the screen. She weighs 14 oz and was squirming around like a mad-woman. I still haven’t felt her move yet, but I know it will be happening sometime soon and can’t wait.

They even switched over to 3D to take some pictures for my husband. I thought that was really sweet and B definitely enjoyed them. He called this morning right after I scanned the pictures so I was able to listen to his reaction when he opened them.

Now I just need to get him back home! Less than 2 months to go!

Here is a picture from the ultrasound:

And one of me at 21 weeks. B requested an updated belly picture and promptly called to ask me if I was sticking out my gut. My reply: No jackass, that is the way my belly actually looks. :) Serious hole-digging-out immediately followed.

Our dog wanted to show off his profile too. You can't see the other dog - she is hiding behind the big dog, but is also showing her profile.

Results - Part II

The amnio came back completely normal. And she is still a little girl! For some reason I kept thinking they were going to tell me that she was a boy. Not sure why because I don’t have any maternal instincts telling me that she is a he. I just thought boy because my husband is the oldest of 4 kids – 3 of which are boys – and all of his cousins are boys.

We are just happy to finally know. That wait took forever – or at least it felt like it did! I was so relieved to finally be able to tell B that I heard from the doctor. I was scared that he might not be paying complete attention to what he was doing if the test was weighing on his mind.

Thanks again for all of the support!

My mom and I completed our first mini-marathon last weekend! It took us 3 hours and 3 minutes. Rain was forecasted but it held off and the overcast sky helped keep the temperature down. All in all it was a great day and I am really proud that we finished.

This is a picture of us at the finish line. My mom thinks it looks like we are toasting our bananas. :)

And here are the pictures from my ultrasound last week:

It should only be a week until I get the results back from the amnio.
