Baby Awesome at 21 Weeks!

All went well today! Thank you for the prayers. Baby Awesome was looking, duh-awesome, weighing in a 1 pound and a heart rate at 151. Since we didn't find out the sex, I only got headshots but there was some awesome pics of his/her spine that I wished we'd gotten a copy of, I'll ask next time.

Here's our little baby's head and chest:
The whole time she was taking measurements and showing us the kidneys and stomach, the little stinker was moving the whole time, she said she was chasing him. Then when it came time to get a picture of his face, he had his back to us so we had to wake him up. Here he is saying, "Come on guys, let me sleep!" We also got to see him yawning which was so precious! I can't wait to see him do that in my arms.The tech told us not to look while she did the antanomy scan but DH was STARING at the screen!!! I was covering his eyes and I don't *think* he saw anything, if he did, he's not saying.

The bad part of the visit is that I think I gained a lot of weight, I haven't really been keeping track but I was watching and was like...that keeps going up, up and up. Dr. Mat said I did need to watch my weight, she gave me the benefit of the doubt due to the holidays. So starting tomorrow (since it's grocery shopping day), more fruits and veggies...no more PBJ and I'm going to start walking. Luckily, the weather has been very nice here in MO so hopefully I can take the Princess Pup on a few walks outside before winter really gets here, no way do I trust the Black Buffalo on a leash right now. I was really upset about the weight thing but then I decided, why be upset? Being upset won't get anything done so make a plan and do something!!!

Now on to the sex...I feel like it's a boy. Why? Well, the Chinese calendar says boy, I'm carrying VERY low and I guess just intuition says boy. So I will probably refer to the baby as a boy from here on out. I can't wait until May to find out for sure!

What a beautiful baby!!! I'm so happy that everything looked perfect. :)

And fwiw, Chinese calendar said I would have a girl, I carried high, and both chad and I were positive it was a girl. But as you know, I had a boy. :). Either way, I'm so excited for you to experience that awesome surprise when he/she pops out. There's nothing better!

I was going to comment on your saying "HIM" in the paragraph about the ultrasound, and then read your last paragraph. LOL My DH keeps calling our baby a him and I say her. I love the argument, it's funny. :)
Either way, what a beautiful baby you have!

WOW that last pic is amazing!!!! It's so clear! He's beautiful! So happy that he appeared to be healthy!!!

Joanna said...

Great pictures!!! How precious to watch it on the screen. I was always in awe of how that was actually coming from my tummy! Can you believe you're more than halfway through?!!!

Aimee said...

Yay!! The Chinese calendar was right for me.

Cecilia said...

OH.EM.GEE!!!!!! Your baby looks so sweet. I can't wait to meet him/her.

Yay! for the good scan...I'm jealous you were able to hold out and not find out the sex...Babe threw a temper tantrum and demanded we know. It's all good, I got the name vote, so we're even.

Chinese calendar said girl and my acupuncturist said girl, something about heart beat, mine not hers, low and behold we had a girl.

I almost felt bad about my first several posts referring to her as a boy, but it was easier than writing he/she or him/her...I was lazy

Can't wait to hear how things continue...

Angie said...

Baby Awesome is so sweet, loving your posts! Need more belly shots!

Joys Truly said...

Looking at the pics I think it is a boy too :) Hooray! I live in the midwest too and trying to enjoy this wonderful weather before good ol Winter really comes...

Emily said...
