It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through this pregnancy. It doesn’t seem like it’s possible that many weeks have gone by. On the one hand I’ve felt like contrary to how many people describe pregnancy as this short time period, the day to day has seemed long. It feels like pregnancy takes a long time. Nine months is a long time whether you want to admit it or not. But then on the other hand somehow five months has passed already and I don’t know where the time went!
Baby J’s Latest Photo Shoot
We had our second ultrasound this week, what is normally considered the anatomy scan. They measure all the big bones and segments of baby’s body and make sure all the organs and such are where they should be and formed correctly. They also checked my cervix to make sure it was closed. Everything looked normal and baby was moving around which made this mama happy.
Our little one seems to have already inherited the stubbornness of its parents though. I have an anterior placed placenta (meaning it’s in front of the baby instead of behind, and can also make it take much longer before you feel movement from the outside due to it acting like a cushion between the baby and your hand) and baby was apparently using it as a pillow. It had its head hidden in the placenta making it really hard to get a good clear head shot. But we did catch an adorable shot of its face with the 3D imaging (which was a surprise to us, we didn’t know our office offered that!). Here are Baby J’s latest pics.
