today's ultrasound...

this isn't our baby's ultrasound but none the less we did have our 20 week u/s today. all went well and at this stage in the game baby is healthy and everything looks good. we will have another ultrasound in a month to check on the location of the placenta and to keep an eye on baby.

the 20 week ultrasound is not the one that gives me concern. i will probably be more stressed out before the next one. please pray that i would i have peace as we go into the next ultrasound. i will keep you posted.

the baby sure was cute in there. it weighs in at about 12 ounces and i am nicknaming it gumby. as the dr. was looking at the belly the baby took its leg and pulled it up to its forehead. what i am saying is that it bent in half. it was wild! crazy little thing. i just can't help but lay in awe as i see that screen with that little bitty person swimming around. i am so thankful for the technology that allows us to catch a glimpse of those ten tiny toes and ten tiny fingers.

as you can read i have been using the pronoun, it. we successfully made it through the ultrasound without finding out what baby is. i have been resolved for the past 5 months that i did not want to know what baby is. of course all morning before the appt. i was thinking "well we could find out- it's not a big deal to go ahead and find out". i stuck to my plan and thankfully had ross there for support but as soon as the dr. walked in i said to her, "we do not want to know what this baby is." she was great and we have no clue. she did tell us it would be harder with each u/s to come not to see what this little one is but i feel like if i could make it through today then i can make it through the others...

WOW!!! 20 weeks already! That little bundle of joy is going to be here before you know it! I'll be keeping you in my prayers these next few weeks as you have these next ultrasounds ahead of you. I know that God has you and this special little one tucked tight in His hands!

Yippee! I'm thrilled that this little one is growing and healthy. I was reminiscing today on OWen's birth and was reminded of your faithful friendship....You guys are dear to us sweet friends. Love you bunches. I'm going to be in Phoenix in April. Hopefully we can get together!

Do you have placenta previa?
