The pregnancy has reached the half-way point, week 20. The pregnancy has been great. I had no morning sickness or fatigue during the first trimester. The second trimester has brought on some fatigue, but otherwise I feel great. I haven’t gained any weight yet, although my weight has shifted around since my belly is starting to be noticeable and my bras no longer fit correctly.
I had wanted to do weekly photos of my profile, but that hasn’t gone quite as planned. Below are the three profile photos I’ve taken so far. I’m going to try to continue on at least every two weeks from here on out.
Last Wednesday, I had my 20-week appointment with my OB and everything looked good. Thursday morning, James and I went to have an anatomical screening at the Texas Perinatal Group. It was really neat, because we got see Baby JAM’s heart beating and the upper lip and brain development looked good. The doctor said everything was right on schedule and estimated the baby weighed 11 ounces. We also decided to find out the sex of the baby. I know I’ve told everyone that I didn’t want to find out and James said I would change my mind, but my OB recommended we find out since I had a gut feeling about the sex of the baby. She thought it would be better to find out now instead of us to going the next 4.5 months thinking the baby was a boy and possibly being wrong. So check out the video of Baby JAM’s heart beating and the ultrasound photos and see if I was right.
