his parts and pieces



last week, we had our 20 week anatomy scan ultrasound. it was nice getting so much time with baby sunshine and seeing what he does in my uterus all day long.

we saw him relaxing comfortably on top of the umbilical cord.
engaging in acrobatics with his feet above his head.
putting his hand in his mouth. 
arching his back.

it was so precious. especially since A was there with me. he got to see our little boy too. 
we were all smiles afterwards. and so grateful that we decided to take a leap of faith and try donor eggs. we are thankful every day for our donor k and the technology that made this pregnancy possible. our dreams are finally coming true. 

the ultrasound tech took the images and showed the doctor on duty. she came back to tell us that everything looked fine. what a huge blessing! i saw his little feet and legs. hands. heart. i even watched him give his mama a good kick. it was wonderful. now that he's packing on the body fat, he looks like a miniature little man (even though he's small enough to fit in the palm of my hand). 


i'm not sure how it is possible that i feel both that this pregnancy is flying by and that it feels like forever until he will arrive.

I'm in the middle of that mental limbo too! Im so glad your guy is growing big and strong. I've could have babies in 3 weeks but I feel like it's going to be a lifetime before they get here.

Loved your last comment. That is EXACTLY how it feels from the time of conception, until they head off to college. My biggest advice to you is not to be in a hurry. Don't be in a rush for him to walk, or talk or go to school etc... It all goes way too fast. Savor every last moment. Something tells me you will. ��

So glad everything is perfect with your little boy. You look wonderful :)

Emily said...

Awesome news on a great anatomy scan. So glad A was there. Isn't it just amazing how they can measure every tiny little part and see their hearts working? So glad this pregnancy is going well for you, and you are one of the cutest preggos ever to boot!
