20 WEEKS!!! Half way there


Baby's digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation... baby's genitals are now fully formed!

Well we had our ultrasound on Monday the 20th...I did not find out what we are having but the Tech was able to get the baby to move around so Chuck could see...I thought it would be easier this time since I have not found out with any of mine but it is harder...but I know if I find out I will be mad at myself so I will not ask...Chuck has told several people this time and he is loving playing games with all of their heads...he is telling them all something different so he is still keeping the secret and playing with everyone this time...he enjoys knowing way to much...
When the Tech was trying to get the baby to move she was shaking my belly and now Odin thinks it is funny to shake the baby...I am not sure I enjoy having my fat belly giggling but if it makes the boy laugh and it isn't in public I am ok with it all...Odin enjoyed seeing the baby on the tv and I loved watching his face in confusion and amazement...
I then had my Doctors Appointment on Wednesday the 22nd and the Doctor said everything on the ultrasound is good and everything is measuring good...I did do the Triple Blood Test Screen this time so we will find out if that comes back with anything next appointment...no worries there if it comes back abnormal it isn't anything I can change anyway but always good to do the test...
at the Ultrasound the Heart Rate was at 141 Beats per minute and at the Doctors Appointment the Heart Rate was at about 130 Beats per minute...Both are lower then what my other two were at (about 150) but the Doctor says it is fine...
I am definitely feeling the baby move...tonight while watching SpongeBob before the boys went to bed I could feel the little movements...I am sure it had nothing to do with Cort headbutting my belly...whatever works it got the baby to move for me...the movement is VERY VERY LOW in my belly-which isn't unusual for me because both the other boys were always Very Very Low in my belly...when the Doctor tries to find the heartbeat he has to go down pretty low on my belly to find it...
I am having more good days then bad days and not so sick all the time...which is a really big plus...so things are going good and will keep you posted...
