After our trip to Wtown (a post in progress) we went for our 20 wk ultrasound. Baby Skill-it is growing and it is starting to show though I still don't look obviously pregnant in my scrubs at work.
This ultrasound was a very detailed look into the development of Baby Skill-it. Our sonographer was so kind to look at each hand and foot to verify that according to the ultrasound Baby Skill-it has 10 fingers and 10 toes!!! A little information we were very glad to have!
Baby Skill-it has a closed spine- the folate intake appears to be adequate!
Below is what I believe has been jabbing me on my left side at times! It's baby Skill-it's left foot!
Baby's left arm
So, do we know what Baby Skill-it is? Nope! God and our sonographer are the only ones who know. It's not documented on the medical record either! We will know if Skill-it is a boy or girl hopefully no sooner than 18-20 wks!
After our ultrasound appt, we went to our OB apt to indicate that we are growing as we should- though they have told me I could gain some weight.....I feel that I am eating a lot. Weight is one thing, but our baby is growing right on schedule so I think I will keep on doing what I am doing. I have a friend that was told she needed to gain and then after she went back for her next appt they told her to slow down- say what?!?!?!? I think I will just listen to what my body says it wants :) I'm not restricting my calories, but I don't have crazy cravings except for fruits and veggies!
Again we covet your prayers as we continue our journey to parenthood!
