Baby Update

Life has been busy, but not in a very bloggable way. I keep getting more pregnant though, which is always bloggable, right? So here’s a quick update as I near the end of my fifth (!!!) month of pregnancy.

Here is the bump at 17 weeks, about to go out to dinner with Matt! My book said the baby would double its weight between weeks 17 and 20…But my belly definitely started to pop before then. This is 19 weeks, rocking my maternity jeans!

And here’s 20 weeks – half way to full term!

This month we had a fetal anatomy ultrasound done to make sure the Truck has all its parts and to establish where the placenta is located. I had a great tech who was very friendly and often turned the screen to show me anything cute/interesting. I got to see nose and lips, feet, and a little belly! She also chased the Truck back and forth to get the perfect picture of its hand (no extra digits there, but we can’t really tell if the thumbs are straight or not… suspense!)

Meet the Truck!

I asked the tech if she knew the gender, and she did! But I used all of my inner strength to stand by mine and Matt’s decision to wait until the Truck is born to look at its private parts 😉 So feel free to speculate, you’ve got a 50/50 chance of being right, and we can’t accidentally give it away because we don’t know either! It is certainly fun to guess, and I know that whatever the gender is, it will just be a mind-blowing blessing when we finally meet this baby who is swimming mad laps in my belly.
