Week 20: Best week EVER!

So this was the big week. Jim's Dad - don't look!

This week we found out the sex of the baby. We were so excited to know! That day was the longest day too. The Doctor's office called me in the morning and said that the doctor had a woman in labor so my appointment might need to be rescheduled. Well, I turned into a basket case (Jim and my Mom can speak to that). I had my hopes up so high to find out that I didn't know what I would do with myself if I couldn't find out that day. It all worked out though...we went to our appointment (which was supposed to be at 5:00). We got there and waited...and waited...and waited...until about 5:40 when they finally took us back to the little ultrasound room where we waited...and waited...and waited until someone finally came back around 6:10ish to start the ultrasound.

So if that wasn't bad enough when the doctor first got a look at our little bundle of joy she said the words I was dreading to hear, "Oh, ok so the baby is breach and has his or her hands 'down there'." That was not the news I wanted to hear after waiting so long. But as you can see from the pictures below, the baby woke up and then (what you can't tell) became a complete SPAZ like her Mommy. She was ALL over the place. The doctor had a horrible time getting her to stay still long enough to take her measurements. All I found out that all of her organs are good and is completely healthy and 'normal'. =) I was so relieved. Now we just had to find out the sex. Well, that wasn't too tricky after she became a crazy baby moving all over the place. She gave us a perfect shot of 'her stuff' and we knew she was a girl.

Not only was this week great to know that the baby is healthy and a girl, I could also feel her moving around a lot more and she is beginning to kick/punch more often. My stomach is beginning to actually move now so if I can time it right, Jim can actually feel her move. We haven't been lucky so far but eventually! I'm starting to figure out what the baby likes and dislikes and what will get her we'll see what can happen. Chili is awesome to get her to move.

In any case, here are the ultrasound pictures. Enjoy!
