20 Week Appt

On Thursday April 24th 2008 we had our 20 week u/s. It's a girl! Although it wasn't that easy for us to find out. The u/s tech wasn't able to tell. Baby had her legs crossed and was in a breech position. So it wasn't so easy to see what was going on down there. But when Dr. came in she was more than willing to share! Baby measured perfectly! She weighs 13 ounces. Her heartrate was 157bpm. I was really happy when the u/s tech looked at my bladder and told me I could go to the bathroom before she finished the rest of the u/s. I had to go so badly and it was really uncomfortable. I think I would have had a harder time concentrating on what was happening with the u/s if I hadn't been able to go to the bathroom. This was huge for me! It was so awesome to get to see her for so long. And she was quite squirmy. All over the place actually, the u/s tech had some troubles getting the correct measurements down. But everything looks wonderful!

We've had a girls name picked out for awhile. We're expecting Caitlyn Anita Darling in September!

Next appt I have the glucose testing. Get to drink the yummy (notice sarcasm) orange drink and have more blood drawn!
