News from the Halfway Point July 5, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — oshikagang @ 4:25 am

Well, here we are, at the halfway point! Can you believe how fast it’s gone by? 20 weeks today; only 20 more till our Nov 21st due date. I already feel like a beachball with legs sometimes, so I can’t imagine what I’ll look like in a few more months!

This week, baby is about 6.5 inches from head to bum (plus about 4 inches of legs that are all folded up) and weighs about 10 ounces. There’s definitely activity in there, especially after I eat, but unfortunately Johnny can’t feel all the kicking and punching quite yet. Soon, though. Up on deck this week: drinking amniotic fluid, and growing fingernails and eyebrows.

We had our big ultrasound today, and were assured that everything is looking great. Spine, brain, bladder are all ok. All the measurements are appropriate for someone 20 weeks along, the heartrate was a strong 160 (consistent with other checkups), and we could even see ten little fingers and ten little toes. We did get two pictures, but unfortunately baby was all curled up in a teeny tiny ball so it was hard to get any good ones. I would post them, but unfortunately at this point, without any fat or flesh (just skin over bones), our child looks like Skeletor. I don’t want you to have scary dreams, but if you’re interested I’ll send them. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

And then.. the big question. Did we find out? Did we get a nice ultrasound lady who was willing to tell? Is it a boy… or a girl?
Well, we DID find out – 90% sure. As I mentioned, baby was rolled up all teeny in a ball so it was hard to get a good look, so do keep in mind that there is some room for error…

It’s your last chance to speculate to yourself…. what do YOU think it is?
