20 weeks

Friday, April 13, 2012

I am 20 weeks today! Officially halfway there! I have been feeling movement pretty consistently since that first time. Baby M tends to be a whole lot more active in the afternoons and evenings and then usually right about the time I'm laying in bed ready to go to sleep. Baby also seems to like to kick my bladder, which is making me have to pee about twice as often as I was before I started feeling movement. It really is an awesome thing to feel though and Daron has been able to listen to the movement with a stethoscope a couple of times, though he is still looking forward to when he can actually feel it.

We had our 20 week ultrasound on Wednesday (19weeks 5days), and it went really well. Baby was measuring at 19weeks 1 day which doesn't surprise me much since we have been measuring a bit behind/small the entire pregnancy.  They checked all the major organs and pointed out the 4 chambers of the heart, the kidneys, the bladder, the brain, the parts of the spine, the umbilical cord, and the placenta. Everything was looking and measuring good. Baby was moving all over and moving its mouth a lot and a couple of times brought its hands up to its face. Here are a couple pictures below. I have a couple more once I get them scanned in, these are just from my phone.

In other news we decided on a doula and mailed the contract today! We are really looking forward to working with her, and both Daron and I feel she is really good fit for us. We liked the 2nd one we met with but felt we had more of a connection with the first one and both of us felt more comfortable with her and like she would be the better fit.

 So we have 1 thing checked off the list, now we just have to get the bathroom done, we are getting there though!

Those pictures are beautiful!!! The best is when they start to actually look like a baby and not just a tadpole. :) Cool about the Doula!
