20 weeks....

So we had our 20 week appointment on Thursday......
I wish that I had a big announcement to make about what we are having, but I have a baby that takes after me! Our baby is stubborn and shy!! Baby was all tucked up with feet hanging out right where we needed to be looking!! The technician had me lay on both of my sides and giggled baby around, but baby just didn't want to move. Being a stubborn person myself I can just imagine that our baby was thinking, "I'm comfortable and don't want to move and you can't make me!!"

Baby 1 Technician 0....I am sure this is the first of many "wins" for our baby!

But there is light at the end of the tunnel! Because of baby's position the technician said she couldn't get all the diagnostics that she needed, so we have to go back in a few weeks for another ultrasound. Darn, right?! So, for the next few weeks I will be speaking with our baby about the importance of being in a good position and cooperating with the technician. Mommy has planning to do and needs to know what baby is so she can do all she needs to! (Plus Mommy doesn't want to have to ground baby before it's even born and Daddy did enough of that during my sick weeks!)

Fortunately what the technician was able to see looked good. It was so fun to have my mom there to be with us as we got to see the baby's sweet little face and the cutest little hands! And not to mention a wonderful spine (baby sure wasn't shy about sharing that with us!) So even though we didn't get to find out what we are having it was an amazing experience and we loved being able to see our precious little one.
Here's to some better pictures in a few weeks! We sure can't wait to see you again!


  1. You're having a baby? OK, just joking. As much as I was saying I didn't want to know the gender (it's like opening on Christmas eve) I may have been the most disappointed. I am looking forward to your appointment in a few weeks!!

  2. My Dearest Cara,
    I love you! I want you to know that Baby is not in my good graces right now. You might inform Monkey Compton of that. I have a four day weekend, complete with being sick so I am looking for things to do and one of those things could have been making your baby stuff! :) But oh well! I can't wait until the 29th!

  3. You're so adorable!
