My 20 week ultrasound was scheduled for Friday, February 25. The appointment was at 10:00 am. So I woke up at 9 in the morning and drank the 12 ounces of water that they had asked me to drink prior to going to the office.
Throwing up cold water is probably the best thing you could ever throw-up. By the way… just in case you wondered. Also – very strange feeling. (Total throw-up count is 3x/20 weeks)
So then I had to drink more water. I decided to do this a little more slowly.
The first part of the ultrasound was a little uncomfortable. Mostly because I had a rather full bladder, but I guess it makes it easier to get the images of the cervix. As soon as the technician was done with those pictures she let me go use the restroom before continuing. I don’t know if that is standard practice, but I thought it was very thoughtful, and showed how conscious they are about the client’s comfort.
I have a video I really want to share, as mentioned before, but it has my (very unique) maiden name in it, and that is something I have been trying to avoid posting on my blog. I’m still trying to figure out how to edit put something in the video to block that part. Once I do that – I’ll be sharing. 🙂
In the mean time… here are some non-moving pictures of our little bean!
And those three little lines mean that we are having a
While I had wanted to not find out the gender until the birth, my Mom convinced me that it would be better to know ahead of time. While we are sharing this information, we will not be sharing any information on names. Partially because we don’t have anything picked out, partially because I want to meet the kiddo before we name her, and partially because I don’t want people to try and comandeer the naming process by convincing me one way or another about certain names. We will probably be using family names, but that too is up for changing!
