What I'm Looking Forward To: Getting the nursery ready! It's so much harder this time around. Too many options for girls!
Highlight Of The Week: Obviously seeing baby on the ultrasound and finding out it's a girl with friends and family!
Milestones: Hair is growing on babies head! He can hiccup now. From here on out, my uterus will grow approximately one centimeter each week until I deliver! Get ready baby bump!
Symptoms: Bleeding gums every night while brushing, bloody/stuffy nose, hard to breathe at times, foot cramps.
Belly button in or out: In
We got to see our little girl sticking her tongue in and out, swallowing, and hiccuping in my belly during the ultrasound! She was pretty content hanging out in there and is laying horizontally. We told the tech we didnt want to find out during the ultrasound but wanted to wait to find out with friends and family later that night. So she hid it from us and wrote it on a piece of paper and put all the pictures on a disc for us to view later. It's a little disconcerting that the tech put a question mark on the gender shots- but comparing it to Jack's it definitely looks much different. haha! I wasn't too impressed by this hospital's ultrasound room/tech, and even the clarity of the photo's, but oh well. Baby looks happy and healthy so that is all that matters.
|This was Jack's gender shot! A slight difference. :)|
I took the piece of paper to the store and picked out a boy outfit and a girl outfit and told the clerk to open the piece of paper and wrap whichever gender was written on that paper and that I was going to open it later!
We had a small group of friends and family over- and facetimed in my parents and my friend so they could be a part of it too! Jack helped us open the present, which I think he thought was for him, and at first he was excited and hugged my neck as everyone cheered that it was a girl, and then he burst out in tears. So funny! I dont know if he got scared, was upset it wasnt a toy for him, or if he was just disappointed it was a girl. Haha! Never the less, it was classic. I wish we had gotten it on video- totally would've made Funniest Home Videos for sure! :)
