19 Week Check-up
What a wonderful way to start the day. First, I wake up to find that my "Egg"stra Special Delivery card was selected as one of the Top Crops this week!!! Then we went to the doctor and got to see our baby this morning :) As of today, I'm 19 weeks 3 days pregnant! We had an Ultrasound at 9 this morning. Baby looked great. It was amazing watching the technician measure everything. She checked the different parts of the brain, the heart chambers, the stomach, kidneys, leg bones, etc. Panda is healthy and right on track. It weighed in at 9 ounces which just mesmerizes me because you can see so many details already. When we first started the U/S, it was sucking on it's left hand for quite some time. The first picture shows the profile shot of it doing that. The bottom pic is a 3-D image of the baby. It shows the baby's face. It decided to fall asleep at that time. It stopped sucking on it's hand and ended up resting it across the left side of the face. So sweet. That is exactly how I sleep!!! I always have my left hand curled up on my cheek.
After our U/S, we had a quick check-up with the Dr. She's very excited that we are keeping it a surprise. She said she always looks forward to announcing it in the delivery room. I'm feeling great!! I've only gained 2 pounds so far, but don't let that fool you. I lost weight during my first trimester and I definitely have a bump now. I've started feeling the baby move a little bit - especially when I lay down. My latest craving was a muffin top. Yes, just the top of a muffin! Ross came home last Friday to ask what was for dinner and I replied that I didn't care, but that I was baking blueberry muffins and we would have one as soon as they came out of the oven, LOL. We went last week and started some registries at Buy Buy Baby (LOVE that store), Babies-R-Us and Target. We had a blast picking out stuff. That's about it. Just wanted to update everyone and let y'all know that we are moving right along. Hope you have a fabulous day!!!
