So we had our 20 week ultrasound today. I talked to my brother Mitch way over on the other side of the world today, and I told him we had our ultrasound this afternoon, and that I was excited for it. His response? ‘Sounds fun. You’re probably getting used to these things by now.’ 😉 I guess you could say that. But really, getting a glimpse of your baby inside your womb is one amazing experience. All the aches, pains, poor sleep and weight gain are worth it to see that tiny being kicking and punching away in there!
So the big reveal? There wasn’t one! HA! We’ve never found out the gender and of course didn’t want to for this baby either. 🙂 After all, getting the surprise of your baby’s gender after labor and delivery is so WORTH THE WAIT! (In my opinion anyways!)
The 3 kiddos, J, and Nana were along for the ultrasound. Nana and G predict a boy, and Nana tells me her predictions have been right with all 3 of our kids. L and A predict a girl. J has no idea, but was hoping for twins. I change my mind daily. Gabriel thought the baby looked like a frog. Lucy thought it was a butterfly. The kids were bewildered by the fact that the gel was warm. They weren’t sure what to think of the facial pictures that looked like something from Halloween. We saw 10 fingers and 10 toes and a heart, kidneys, feet and hands, spine, long bones, etc. So neat! G thought the baby’s head was huge. If only he would have seen his own head at birth! Oh my….
So, on we go into the 2nd half of this pregnancy. Hopefully it’s smooth sailing and my pelvis can keep it together (literally). And now I can reassure a few of my patients that it is indeed, only ONE baby, not triplets 😉
