Halfway Point

Today I had the big 20 week ultrasound. 20 weeks down, 20 more to go. Hopefully the second half will go as well as the first.

We took Claire out of school for the day so she could come along and see the ultrasound. I think at first she was very unimpressed. She sat in the chair and read books. I don't blame her, those black and white pictures can be pretty obscure. But she really got into it when the sonographer started looking at the spine and ribs, which were much more identifiable than other parts. She was also very interested in the actual ultrasound machine.

Everything looks great. We even got a thumbs up from the baby. And we stuck to our decision to not find out if its a boy or a girl. We'll know in 20 more weeks!

The doctor called, but I had to promise not to tell AnYoNe if I'm having a new granddaughter or grandson...I'll tell you what the doctor told me in 20 weeks!

Congrats on the baby! We are expecting probably around the same time as you guys. It's been a long time, looks like you guys are doing well.
