Baby Update - Ultrasound!

I had my ultrasound today! I am about 20 weeks and 5 days along, with a due date of July the 9th. In the ultrasound the baby measured a little bigger with a due date of July 7. So we will see! We did not find out the gender, we like the suspense lol. Actually, I am planning on trying to have this baby all natural just like I did with little Jimmy and having the surprise of whether it is a girl or a boy is something I can focus on during labor. It gives me something to work towards (you know, besides getting the baby out! hehe). And we really don't care if its a boy or a girl as long as he/she is healthy! Doesn't make a difference to us one way or the other. Though I will admit (have I already?) that I would love to have a girl this time around, Jimmy would be so sweet with a little sister and I am actually itching for some pink! Did I really just say that?? Eeesh. And I have a name in mind for a girl, but no clue for a boy (ok I do like a name for a boy, but Jim is not too excited about it...maybe I can get him to change his mind...)!

Everything seemed to go well, we got to see all 4 chambers of the heart, kidneys, all the arms and legs are accounted for and the nostrils and lips look good =D. The placenta is anterior and it was not too low. With Jimmy it was low so I had to get another ultrasound around 32-34 weeks to make sure I didn't have placenta previa (which I didn't) so it looks good to go this time. Alright, so without further ado, here is our little sweetie:

I had to include a face shot, but I have to be honest, they always creep me out. Too alien-ish for me! But I love that face nonetheless! =)  My next dr. appointment is on the 8th so look for another update and a baby bump pic around then. Have a great night!

Congrats again! Glad to hear that all is going well with you and your little one. I agree with you on not finding out the sex. Its hard to wait that long to find out, but when the doctor tells you what the baby is, the wait is totally worth it! Looking forward to updates!

Congrats! I love to see ultra sound my first baby is almost 9 months now and I remember the way I starred at the picture wondering what he would look like. I will pray for pink for you!

I love to see the ultrasound pics! I know what you mean about the face shots. I know when I was pregnant with my daughter I saw her face, it was lovely on the monitor. The picture that they took a second or so later was...meh.

I'm glad the baby is doing well!
I'm also glad to hear that it's a surprise. Not many people do that! I always got a shocked reaction when I told people we weren't finding out!

Ali, What a beautiful baby. I think it would be so neat to wait to find out the gender until giving birth. I always find out though lol. Actually if my good tech is there this coming Mon. She is going to tell us what we are having:) I pray for us both to be blessed with healthy blessings. Love hearing your updates. Any names in mind? Blessings my friend,
