22 week belly shot

By popular request (ok, just one request from Sarah W) here is another belly shot!  22 weeks and a couple days:

When I asked Yenari what to write, her response was (a mere 4 seconds ago): ‘belly is getting big’.  The belly isn’t getting too big, but Yenari does think she’s transforming into a whale.  In exciting baby news, the little belly tenant is kick kick kicking away and moving around a lot.  I’ve finally been able to feel her movements which is really exciting.   She’s been kicking hard enough that she wakes Yenari up every morning at 7am – she’s a morning fetus…and since Yenari works the evening shift and sets her alarm for 1pm, 7am is a tad bit early.  I’m just hoping she continues to be a morning baby – much better than a baby working the night shift…

It’s a girl!

Yup – we’re going to have a baby girl!  We went into the doctor today for the 20 week organ screening – a process where they do a very detailed ultrasound and examine all the organs, bones, and make sure that everything is looking good.  The woman who was doing the examination asked us if we wanted to know the gender (which we did) so then she asked Yenari whether she had any preference for a girl or a boy – Yenari answered that she wanted to have a girl and the woman said she’s in luck, because it is a girl…then she pointed to the screen and said, “see, over here, you can see her hamburger” – I’d never quite heard that term for ‘lady parts’, so that was fairly amusing.  Here are a couple shots from the ultrasound, though unfortunately their printer was having serious problems so the quality of the photos is really bad:

They don’t give the results on the organ screening during the appointment – that’s something that we hear about later, but nothing seemed abnormal, so we’re hoping everything is ok.  It was great to see the ultrasound for so long – almost an hour – we got to see her moving around a lot, kicking, punching, sucking her thumb, and even giving us the finger!  

After a very exciting appointment it was time for lunch, and the choice was quite obvious – hamburgers…

As of yesterday Yenari’s now 19 weeks through her pregnancy – almost halfway there and with a brand new haircut!  Here she is:

And now stepping back a week, here’s Yenari receiving breakfast in bed on her birthday – December 31st.  The gourmet menu I put together included six slices of french toast with syrup and cinnamon sugar, eight (!) pieces of bacon, and a glass of orange juice.
