I cannot believe we’ve made it this far. And we know the baby is still alive because we heard its heartbeat last night on the doppler. I need to post some new belly pics. We got out of the habit of taking them weekly. I know we took one at 16 weeks, and I’ll want to take one this week to go with our new u/s pics. I can tell something’s going on in there. Vanessa can tell: evidenced by the “OMG– you are HUGE!” that I hear every night when I get into bed.
Even though most of my pre-pregnant wardrobe doesn’t fit anymore, no one else seems able to tell. That’s frustrating. It looks like I’m just gaining my weight back. (If you’ve ever lost a lot of weight, you might have noticed that people seem to LOVE it when someone loses a significant amount of weight and then puts it back on.) I’m thinking that will remedy itself soon, though.
One more day before the anatomy scan. It feels like Christmas Eve!
BTW– what is that thing in our ticker? I cannot identify anything fetal about it. Are they showing what the baby’s guts look like?
