Halfway there

I am 20 weeks done in my pregnancy which means I am halfway done. This morning, we woke during a booming thunderstorm and got ready for our doctor’s appointment. We had to be there at 8:15. Cailin normally gets up at 9:30 in the morning, so we had to wake her up early. THIS WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA!!!!! She was not happy. Once we were dressed and on the way to the appointment, she was much better.

****DISCLAIMER**** From here until the baby is born, I will most likelly refer to the baby as HE. We do not know the baby gender, but it sounds significantly better than referring to the baby as IT!!!!!****

We went in and got to see our little baby today. I haven’t felt any movement until today. I had to laugh. The baby had hands by his ears, and then elbows out to the side. His legs were crossed at the ankles. The ultrasound technician said that all he needed to be comfortable was a remote control. We all laughed. Cailin kept saying “jeddy beddy” (this translates to jelly on belly). Anyway, The baby had his face up against the placenta so we couldn’t see the face. The ultrasound technician poked my gut rather hard and made the baby move. He didn’t like that. We saw both legs start kicking as well as both arms start flailing. That was the first time I could actually FEEL the baby move! It was neat to see the movement while I was feeling it!!!! Here are some pictures that we got.

Is there a special reason you keep saying he? Or is it just hopeful thinking?

Wow, in the 3D picture you can see "his" face really clearly! Ultrasounds have come a long ways since I was pregnant! Are you not finding out what you are having?
