Songram, Take 2

Pictures from our sonogram today!

Baby's Face

 Curled up in a ball...


Baby weighs approximately 14oz and measuring at 20 weeks 4 days rather than 21 weeks 3 days but it's not a big deal. Baby will come when baby is ready.

Last time I saw the baby they were just a little gummy bear! So amazing to see their fingers, toes and spine and more facial features. The sonogram tech seemed to catch the gender pretty quick and marked my letter (that I'm sending to my sister) with the gender. I honestly didn't even realize she had got it so quick. Waiting a little bit after the 20-week mark helps them to see things better so that might be why.

Edited to add: I forgot to mention how I thought the placenta was anterior. It's NOT! My first pregnancy with a posterior placenta. That would explain why I've felt so much movement and consistently. With my anterior placenta pregnancies I didn't feel consistent baby movement until weeks 24-26! (Anterior placenta = placenta toward the mother's belly rather than her spine; it will absorb a lot of baby's movements.)

Baby's heart rate was 137bpm. I've heard low means boy but alas we shall see!

So there you have it! Our little baby!!! Four months away from holding our new son or daughter.
