The Bump our little man is about the size of a banana, measuring about 6 1/2 inches from head to bottom (10 inches from head to heel) and weighing in around 10.6 oz. I've been feeling a lot more movement over the past few weeks and for the first time this week, I saw movement, which was really cool. He would hardly hold still for the tech to get measurements today. Maybe we're going to have a squirmy little guy! According to today's ultrasound, he is a very healthy baby. Strong heartbeat, average size, healthy brain and bloodflow, and all of that other good stuff. Praise God for that.
About mama: I'm definitely in the 2nd trimester happy place. For the most part, my energy is up and I'm feeling pretty good. A bit more heartburn these days, but nowhere near to the torture that Anna put me through - yet anyway. This past week I started feeling a bit more of the uncomfortable poking as baby gets bigger and starts running out of space to swim as freely. I feel like he is sitting really low, but the tech says he doesn't seem to be. Maybe it's a third baby thing?
Here are some highlights from the ultrasound. The first is the money shot. I spared him the future embarrassment of including the Boy! arrow pic.
He was trying to suck on both of his hands for a good while. Maybe we'll finally have a kid that will take a pacifier?
And here's one last profile shot for the records :)
