20 Weeks---The Halfway Point!

Baby Munck  18 wks
Precious Foot

 Friday I hit the 20 week mark in my pregnancy!
Baby 'M' and I are doing well, and we are both growing...
me more than Baby 'M'.
We had a routine ultrasound at 18 weeks,
Baby 'M' was kicking up a storm and giving a show.
The ultrasonographer ask us if we would like to know if
Baby 'M' was a boy or girl...
We quickly declined, as we love the surprise in the end after all the hard work :)
During part of the ultrasound the screen was turned so we couldn't watch,
due to the fact Baby 'M' was so active, and well, gender may have been in view ;)
We didn't mind not watching,
because as I have stated before we feel an ultrasound is for checking the health of baby...
finding out the babies gender is just an added perk.
We first learned of Jonathan having Down Syndrome from an ultrasound,
which was later confirmed by an amnio.
What a wonderful thing technology is in cases like Jonathan's.
Thankfully Baby 'M' looked wonderfully healthy, we are praising the Lord!
Now just 20 more weeks to go, give or take?!?
I'll try to post pictures every now and then of Baby 'M' and I,
though I make no promises as I'm not fond of my picture being made.

If the Lord ever brings our paths together again...oh wait....I mean....WHEN...yes WHEN the Lord brings our families together again Elizabeth and I will have to spend some time together. Oh the lists we could make about all the change we want to make in our lives.

You look great. Praying for a healthy happy baby for you all and good remainder of the pregnancy for you.


Nikki said...

Don't the weeks just fly by? I agree with look wonderful. So healthy! :) I LOVE when you share pictures of you and baby.
I enjoyed your ultrasound pictures and am with you on liking the surprise at the end. The moment we have been waiting for! :)After he or she is born it is always hard to imagine that there was a time we had no idea who he was. Our little babes will be only 10ish weeks apart! :)

I don't like my picture being made either Laura, but you are growing a wonderful blessing and gift from God, and you look absolutely lovely as you are. Glad you are feeling better now, and pray for the health to continue throughout your pregnancy.

In His Grace,

Glad you are both doing so well. Can't wait to see the new baby. Halfway already?! It seems like you just announced that you were expecting.


Beth said...

Glad you are both doing well...I'm calling boy! We, too, waited to find out the gender until birth! It drove so many people crazy - but it was the best surprise and I loved that my husband told me each time "what" we had!

Prayers for a continued safe and healthy pregnancy!
