20 Weeks

Today is 20 weeks. Half way through already and I can't believe it. I can't believe it because it feels like yesterday that I felt like I would never get the chance to be a mommy or that it would take years and years and possibly a ton of money to get here. As much as certain symptoms may get annoying, I am so excited to be pregnant especially since I get to feel our little girl move and kick everyday. 

Last week we had our anatomy scan at 19 weeks, 1 day. We were able to confirm that our little one is a girl (there was a lot of skepticism after how early our first gender ultrasound was.. I knew she was a she though.. lol) and the best part was we found out everything looks normal and healthy with her. Her heart, her spine, her kidneys, her brain, even her toes. Our perfectly healthy baby girl. Another blessing that I don't take for granted. Here are some pictures of her, I think she looks like her daddy already ha ha. 

I am just so excited for everything to come, including the next stages of pregnancy. I can't wait for our little girl to gain weight and for her kicks and movements to get stronger. As much as my back already hurts, I can't wait to get a bigger rounder belly. And I can't wait to meet her, but I am very happy to wait another 20 weeks at least. :)

Right now I am focusing on researching everything. I've started reading a hypnobirthing book and I am pretty sure I will do a self study course on it. I'm trying to figure out a birth plan that works for both my doctor and me and making sure that I understand everything that I am willing to fight for and what is more stress than it's worth.

20 weeks. Half way there and I know time is going to fly.
