Yesterday, at 21 1/2 weeks, Matt and I got to see our newest little peanut during an ultrasound.
I was having a hard time getting excited since we'd done this once before and wouldn't be finding out the sex but it was surprisingly just as fun and exciting the second time around.
So far, Pearl, as we've started calling him/her, is much different from her big sister. At 20 weeks, Addy was in the perfect spot and we were able to get the cutest little profile picture of her. This baby was being bashful, had her head buried in my tummy and wouldn't let us get a good look at her. But that just means we get to go back for another ultrasound in a few weeks.
He has taken after his big sister in some ways though, like sleeping on his head?!? (Addy is a stomach, butt in the air sleeper) The ultrasound picture didn't come out great, so I won't share it (and who really thinks ultrasound pics are cute besides the proud parents?), but it looks like he's upside down. Silly baby!
That's one proud papa who semi-willingly let me snap a photo of him and the baby at our coffee date after the ultrasound.
According to the tech, our baby is beautiful and just fine. Yeah! She's also measuring at 22 weeks, four days ahead of schedule. So in my head that means that we are four days closer to meeting our little one than we originally thought!
