Well, 20 weeks means we are halfway on our journey. Doctors typically ask for an ultrasound during this point of the second trimester to see how the baby is developing. I have been dreaming about this for weeks. Dreams where we can't afford the ultrasound, the baby doesn't cooperate, and even that our baby had died.
Luckily none of this happened. We made a party of this trip and invited my mom and Alan's mom to join us. They offered some great insight to the changes in technology since they were pregnant. Baby is doing just fine and is perfectly healthy. Our little one is camera shy, still, and was apparently sleepy, too. The baby's femur bone is longer than average, which I was excited for (you know, natural runner). Baby has long toes, too!
It was so good to see our little one! I am amazed at how much love I have for this tiny person already. Alan is so excited to be a father. He practically is beaming when we talk about our baby. I've never seen him be anxious before- not even for our wedding day- but today he was so anxious, it was adorable. I'm glad he's as excited as I am to be a parent.
Well, on with the growing game! I can't wait so see the little one in person.
Oh, did I mention we're having a girl?
