I cannot believe this pregnancy has reached the halfway point already! At first it seemed like it was going so slowly, now it feels like it is racing by.
The last week was a bit rough on me. Over the weekend I had been doing good, but then Monday my stomach was a mess and it lasted into Tuesday. It finally went away, so that was nice. Then on Thursday I threw up as soon as I finished eating breakfast. I can’t complain since that was only the second time this pregnancy, but it was kind of annoying. My stomach was queasy all day long. But….onto the good stuff.
We had our 20 week appointment and ultrasound on Thursday as well. Baby looks great. I love this picture from the ultrasound, baby had kicked a leg over the belly, then shoved a hand into his/her mouth. It was so sweet. Love love love. Baby’s heartbeat is around 140 this time and was finally really easy to find. During the ultrasound, every time the tech was trying to get a picture of the heart chambers, baby would twist around. She had to keep alternating between spine and heart pictures because baby wouldn’t stop twisting back and forth. It was pretty funny.
Baby is roughly the size of a banana now. According to the ultrasound, weighing in at about 14 ounces. In the event I ever get to just sit down, I can feel baby moving around quite a bit, but that opportunity doesn’t come up too often. Sitting in the car isn’t very comfortable when I’m driving. Baby does something to make me uncomfortable. Boy or girl, those parts are doing their job right now. Ovaries are there or testicles are descending. No, we didn’t find out the gender, we love the surprise of it all come baby’s birthday.
I wanted to share a picture of me at 20 weeks with both of my other kids, but can’t seem to find my 20 week picture of Charlie, but here is me pregnant with Maggie and me pregnant this time around.
