“Quit pushing on me!”

20 Week Photo! This week was the ultrasound and around 20 mins of pushing on my stomach to capture these pics. I was making a similar face because it was a little uncomfortable at times…cute! I had to take a picture of the pictures because the tech noted the sex of the baby on the digital copies.

Everything checked out great. Baby measured at 20.3 weeks which is just a couple days off my predicted due date. Other stats include:
– 11 oz
– ~150 beats per min heart rate
– the placenta is anterior positioned so that means it’s on my stomach (TMI?) So that could mute the feeling of any movement for a bit longer. But…Aunty Meghan got a fist bump over thanksgiving, and just now Chris got to feel his first kick. So there’s some activity in there!
– the upper lip is intact…other bone, organ, circulation measurements were all perfect

We spent thanksgiving in Indiana and had a great time. The 5k went good, cold but we got there and got some exercise in before the big meal. Chris, my dad Bob and my sister’s husband Branden went trap shooting, while the girls did Black Friday shopping in Chicago.

This week we are doing some nesting as well. We ordered new blinds and Chris got those installed this week. He has been so great around the house with some furniture moving, updated the fire alarms, and cooking some fantastic dinners lately. I ordered the ‘gender reveal’ cake for small party on 12/22 with my family who will be in town, and Chris’s parents Mike and Nancy. Looking forward to finding out if it’s a boy or girl!
