Hello- I reached 20.5 weeks this weekend and couldn’t be happier. On Friday, Josh and I had our second ultrasound and this was the big one. At first the baby was not cooperating and I was nervous we weren’t going to find out what he/she was. Even if that were the case, it was still an amazing feeling to see our little one again. He has grown so much since we saw him last 12 weeks ago! When she first pulled up the sonogram he was waving at us…we saw his heart beating, blood flow in his cord, all brain lobes, hands feet, face, spine, ribs, and finally he flashed the camera long enough to prove he is definitely a HE! We were overjoyed to find out our firstborn baby is going to be a son. We got quite a few pictures to be posted at some point but seeing him on the screen makes it harder to wait to see him in person!
After our DR. appts, we went to dinner at an Indian restaurant. We started talking about baby names and have a few front runners but nothing fantastic. Maag is not the easiest last name to match to! Oh well, we have time and will figure it out soon enough. I did tell Josh at the restaurant that I am the happiest I’ve ever been in my life- and truly mean it. We celebrated 3 years of marriage this week (at the Melting Pot) and found out our baby boy is as healthy as can be. Nothing in life can be better than that.
On Saturday, we went to Mike and Liz’s house for Josh to play a game with them. I went shopping for more maternity clothes and bought the paint for the nursery. I can’t wait for it to be painted and put together soon!
As far as my health goes, this is the third night in a row that I haven’t been able to sleep:-( My back is still bothering me quite a bit so prayers for healing, pain relief and more sleep would be appreciated. But, my biggest prayer of all is that the pain goes away after my son is born- I can’t imagine it not and me not being able to do all of the things that I want to do with him.
