Diary Of A Pregnant Gal || 20 & 21 Weeks

10.24.2014
Forgive me that this post is not in "normal" format. I couldn't put all my excitement into that cookie cutter format today.

So this is where I'm at. I completely spaced on blogging my 20 week progress last week. Why? Because I'm pregnant that's why. My brain goes a mile per minute and I feel like a bad mama-jama if I remember to take my prenatal pill each morning.

Sunday is the big day! If you don't follow me socially than you missed it yesterday. We had our 21 week anatomy ultrasound. It was so incredible to see our sweet baby up on that screen. He/she actually looked like a baby rather than a gummy-bear! In fact there is a picture below to show you :) My heart melted listening to the heartbeat once again and watching my baby squirm all around.

I think the most surreal moment was feeling a kick in the side and actually watching Baby kick his/her leg on the monitor. Pregnancy and the creation behind it just astonishes me. #wellplayedGod

This was supposed to be my 'jealous' face. I now know not to make that face ever again.

Now comes the tough part, continuing to wait until Sunday to found out the wonderful news! I've never wanted to make like a savage and tear apart an envelope so badly in my life. I did make my sister-in-law open it in front of me so I could watch her reaction and it was worth it.

But now Jon and I are replaying the day over and over and trying to make sense of it to figure out the gender ourselves. A lot of conversations sound like this, "Did you see what I saw when she scanned really quick by the leg?" "Yeah, but I think she said that was the ambilical cord". "Well your sister reacted this way so that makes me think it's a girl." "Well how would she have reacted if it was a boy?" "Good point."

It's exhausting.

Either way I can't believe we are going to be smooching on a baby boy or girl in 19 short weeks or less! Can't wait to share our news with you!

Side profile. Baby has their hand up to their face just above his/her nose.

I'll be announcing the gender on social media Sunday evening after our party so make sure to follow along for VIP access. I'll announce it on the blog on Monday for those of you non social media folk :) #nojudgement #butgetwiththeprogram
