This week has been the most amazing yet! I finally feel good 90% of the time and I love that people are starting to notice my belly. Before I felt like (and to quote my 5 yr old nephew Landon) that I just looked like I'd just had a little too much junk food. Yeah, he seriously said that. HaHa! Isn't that hilarous?
Now I feel like it's a definate baby bump! I've only gained 4 lbs total so far this weekend I got the comment "is that all you've gained" several times. And my friend Callie even said my bump looked like it should weigh more than 4 lbs. Well you guys get ready! My Dr said I can gain 30 lbs total. So I can only imagine what that will look like!
I thought Jared was going to die this week before our appointment finally got here. He was super anxious and so was I. We were scheduled for a 3D and 4D ultrasound and the Dr had told us he would try to determine the sex of our baby. Thursday finally got here and of course I was nervous all day. What if something was wrong? It's the same thing I go through every single time I have an appointment. I am good for 3 weeks and then the week of my appointment I worry myself to the brink of insanity.
The ultrasound was amazing! Our sweet little bundle measured 17 weeks and 2 days, and weighed about 6 oz. And....he says it's a baby girl! He only got a quick glimpse of the baby with it's legs spread but he said we should be saying baby girl and he will confirm it next month. We watched our little angel moving around for about 20 minutes while he measured and checked her out and explained things to us. It's so unbelievable that she's only about 5 inches long yet she's already looking exactly like a human.
The only thing about her that scares me is that everytime I have an ultrasound, they comment on how active she is. But....she is Jared's daughter so I should expect that right? The video of the ultrasound is hilarious. She gives a thumbs up, moves her cord all around and thows gang signs (according to the Dr) the entire time. Above are some pictures of our little super active sweetheart... And check out the toes in the thumbs up picture! My Dr commented on how long there are....she definately gets that from me!!
