Another Ultrasound????

So, I'm having ANOTHER ultrasound in 4 weeks. After meeting with my doc today, he said baby looked good....organs healthy, etc, but he said the baby's body was measuring differently in different parts. The head/abdomen were measuring a few weeks ahead and the femur was measuring small.......so what does that mean??? Nothing right now except I may be loading up on drugs for this child's big head to come out in a few months!! :) Seriously though...the doc just wants to see if he "evens out" in the next few weeks and then we will go from there! I just think of it as another chance to get a look at my growing boy, so that will be fun.

What a difference 6 weeks makes!

Ok, here we go....this was around 4th of July right before my ultrasound when I was about 20 weeks.......

......and BAM!!! This is 6 weeks later at 26 weeks (or just over 6 months). Crazy how much growth I've had lately. My total weight gain is just about 20 lbs and I still have 14 weeks to go! Last time I grew the most between months 5-8 and didn't really grow much or gain weight in the last month. Let's hope that is the case again....we will see!

The doctor wanted another ultrasound because they couldn't see the kidneys and a few other things last time, so I went in for another one this past week. Thank goodness it was a MUCH BETTER experience than last time and it only lasted about 20 minutes. Since I was a month further along, the pictures of the baby were really clear and it was so fun to look at him. Here are a few of my favorites. This first one is his little (or not so little) foot!

His profile...check out how clearly you can see his brain.....crazy!

Here's his face and abdomen. His hands are crossed up above his head. It was so cute to watch him squirm around!
