Baby news ...




I had an ultrasound yesterday (the 20 week fetal anatomy one that is standard for every pregnancy - at least in Alberta). It went well ... the tech had to chase that baby around to get all the measurements and pictures that were needed because he or she was moving so much (and no I didn't find out the sex of the baby - I like to keep that a surprise for after all the hard work of giving birth!) My mother in law came with me which was awesome to share with her.

This morning I got to see my obstetrician for the first time this pregnancy. He said I'm to keep on taking it really easy and to remain on the medication that I'm on that has been shown in research to decrease the chances of having a preterm labour. So glad that Matt was able to come from work to go to this appointment (he looked so handsome in his uniform). I'll also be followed fairly closely with ultrasounds and visits to see the obstetrician monthly until I'm past the point of a premature delivery. A big sigh of relief ...

I just love US pics. It makes it so real and amazing that it's not just a belly, but a real live little tiny human in there.

Yay for the half way point. I can't wait to see what kind{boy or girl?} makes you part of the{Mommy of 3} club.

Really, that it a great US picture! So sad I had to miss our chat yesterday....I forgot I had to run to Sam's Club for a few necessities, including Kara's formula!

Now rest up and keep making a beautiful baby!
