20 Week Ultrasound

John and I went in for our 20 week ultrasound today joined by my sister Stephanie and it was amazing! I loved being able to see our little one moving all around and begin to make sense of which body parts are where. S/he is laying transverse--the head is on my left side, the spine runs next to where my belly button is and the feet are on my right side--so we were not able to get a good profile shot, but still were able to walk away with some pretty good pictures. All fingers, toes, arms, legs are looking good as well as all major organs including the brain. My fluid levels are right on track and our little one already weighs 1 pound! Developmentally it looks like s/he is one week ahead (where I thought I was to begin with) but they did not change my due date (November 21). We are waiting till his/her birthday to find out the sex so no announcement there either. However the tech said that she could definitely see the genitals and all looks good in that regard too. We are so in love with this baby and can't believe the next time we see him/her will be the birthday!

Face Shot

I can touch my knees to my nose and look at my toes! (my ankles are crossed)

My heart, stomach and brain all look good

See you in November!

Oh My Goodness! You and John have no idea how much love you will have for the munchkin by the time s/he is born! I am so happy for you guys!

This is a great way to keep us up-to-date. Thank you so much. Your grandpa can make out body parts, but I can't at this time! Keep up the journal and God keep you strong and in His love. All three of you are in our prayers. We love you, Grandma/pa Pedersen
