Hi lovely reader,
Baby update: Our 20 weeks ultrasound!
How are things going for you?
It’s time for a baby update..
Last wednesday we had our 20 weeks check up.
It’s a very special ultrasound appointment,
because all the medical stats are going to be revealed of #ourlittlebabEJ
Of course this is an absolutely thrilling check up.
The only question we want to know,
if she’s doing okay in there.
We are aware of the fact it’s not a guarentee a child is
mentally and fysically healthy.
Besides my profession as a teacher i am a social worker as well.
I’ve seen a lot of kids who didn’t had all the luck in the world.
Of course these stats won’t say anything about the labor itself.
A childbirth without complications is already a miracle.
When we came at the midwife office,
the first thing the assistant did was checking my bloodpressure.
I have a very low bloodpressure and i fainted already in the past.
This time my BP was at the same level as well.
We needed to check my weight too and yes i’ve gained a couple of pounds ;)!
After this check the midwife started the 20 weeks check up.
Missy was lying upside down,
so she started with her head slowly to her toes.
It was quiet impressive (and a Biology lesson as well)
how her tiny body was developing.
We could see her brains, heart, kidneys, ribs and even her tailbone!
How fascinating and wonderful at the same time
All the organs were ok and she was doing just fine.
It’s absolutely a relieve to hear she’s doing great,
Deeply i knew she did,
i felt here for like two weeks now (she is very active!)
Somehow i knew it’ll be fine.
I need to trust myself and her
and i can’t wait to meet her…… “just” 19 weeks to go 😉!
