Today I'm 21 weeks and 4 days along. Approximately 129 days left to go.

Also today, Franklin and I have the opportunity to see our little one again via u/s. I'm scheduled to have one monthly, purely because of my age. I'm curious to see if my due date will be altered at all ... I'm reading online that other women this far along in pregnancy are having their due dates altered just slightly based on u/s results. Our last u/s, a month ago, yielded us not so much in the moving baby department but was bountiful in good health report. I'm hoping to maintain the good health, but would love to see our baby moving around a bit. He's very much the couch potato....I'm beginning to think I do not move around enough to inspire him. Not a lot of movement. I can feel when he's weighting himself near my "front" but I'm not feeling him move...if that makes sense.

Yesterday was my second stranger-asks-about-baby. We just arrived back from a late night beach stroll when hunger hit .... and stopped by a Tropical Restaurant which stays open late. Our very young cashier finished our total with a "Excuse me m'am, are you pregnant with a boy?" I asked how she knew, and she replied that her mother told her that boys are carried low. If there's one thing I can attest to, this kid is being carried very low.

LOL< my waist line is completely gone. While I've looked pregnant for a while, the last couple of weeks I've really begun to change body shapes. This week in particular. Last night I walked by our dresser mirror after changing into my jammies and was alarmed at how much bigger I was than I thought. And I had just seen myself that morning. Rolling Eyes


Peace

Jamie, how did your ultra sound go yesterday? I'm sure the remaining months of your pregnancy will go by faster than you can imagine. Smile It won't be long before you'll be holding your precious little one in your arms!


Blessings,

I thought I had updated here - sorry.

The ultra sound went fine this past week. The main focus was on the heart...all chambers working as designed. Cord looks good. The only downside was that we found the placenta was front facing (they did not use the medical term which would have prompted more questions from me).

Now, that isn't bad - particularly since they didn't include the world "low" in the description. It does explain why it has been more difficult for the docs to locate a heartbeat during the regular checkups, and does explain why we don't feel kicks externally (and not internally so much, either). He's facing it so he has this big giant pillow, basically, between "me" and him....and to demonstrate immediately after this was explained to me, the little fellow was on screen stretching and bumping about while I couldn't feel a thing unless the u/s instrument was severely pushed into my stomach. LOL, the tech said I would be thankful for that little bit of cushion as he grows stronger. Wink


Peace

It's still amazing to me how much they can tell about the baby and womb before birth thanks to modern technology. When I first started having babies, ultra sound wasn't at all routine.

I'm thankful all is well and I'm continuing to pray for you and your baby to be healthy and happy! Smile
