What an exciting day we had yesterday! My 20 week ultrasound and check up was yesterday and I could barely sleep Monday night knowing that it was coming on Tuesday. This was the first appointment that Mike could be at so him and I were the only ones in the room for awhile during the ultrasound. Our baby is quite the little mover!! He or she (no, we didn't find out what we were having! We stayed strong!) was very active and put on a show for us! The ultrasound tech kept giggling, because she said it looked like the baby was doing pushups! He or she even waved to us at one point. The baby is healthy and growing normally. All the organs look great. We are so thankful and we pray that everything continues going well. I had my checkup afterwards and my doctor agreed that everything looks great! My next appointment is at the end of May and it's my one hour glucose test. Yuck.
How Far Along: 20 weeks! Half way there!!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: -12
Maternity Clothes: Still in my regular clothes for now, but the day of maternity clothes is quickly approaching.
Best Moment this week: the ultrasound. seeing our little one. I can also feel more movements better as they get a little stronger.
Gender: we're team green! didn't find out.
Movement: Getting stronger everyday. As active as this baby seems to be, I have a feeling I'll be feeling every movement soon.
Food Craving: Still banana popsicles, but not as bad as before.
What I miss: Sleeping through the night.
Sleep: I bought myself a body pillow and that has helped a bit.
What I am looking forward to: registering :)
Belly Button: in. and it better stay there.
Symptoms: I still get sick about once a week, but that's an improvement. I'm not showing a lot, but there's a little bump there (i think it looks just like more fat but Mike disagrees) The doctor yesterday also said there was one. Ha.
Doctor's Update: I think I covered that above.
