20 weeks along...20 more to go. :)

Today we had our 20 week checkup and ultrasound!

I was convinced today would be a huge revelation of weight gain bc the past month i have been so hungry and just eating so much more than in the beginning. But that is all part of it, which i have come to actually enjoy. :) thankfully tho, the scale only revealed a 5 lb increase...which i'll take for now. i know, we still have a long ways to go tho. :)

The ultrasound tech printed some pics, and i don't have a scanner, and can't post them, i am so sad! It was just so fun to see our sweet babe...he/she was all cozied up and at one point had his arms moving and was rubbing something out of his eye...ahhh!!! It was hard also bc our tech totally said he knew the sex...and ahhh, it would have been oh so easy to just find out...but alas, much to the sadness and frustration of my mom, sis and many friends, we didn't cave and find out. it was tough tho, i can't lie!!! i was tempted! Hee hee...

Jackson was carrying the pics around all afternoon, and kept showing me and laughing saying, look at his head, hee hee. (it was super sweet, not like making fun, just cute!)

I will say, it felt so much more real today...and i am smitten with my sweet unborn babe. We cannot wait to meet you!!

Thank you Heavenly Father for a healthy checkup and that all seems to be going as it should - you are GOOD and we give you all the glory for this miracle!!!

So glad everything went well at your appointment and cannot wait to know what you are having!! You can take pictures of the ultrasound pictures and post them that way -- that's the way I had to do it because my scanner wasn't working! Have you been doing any more slow-motion viewing of the ultrasound video?!? ;)
