22-Week Check-up and Ultrasound

I had my check-up and ultrasound today. Good news...I gained 2 pounds! The doctor said this is the first time she's seen me that I haven't had major ketones on my urine test, a sign of hyperemesis. She thinks we've turned the corner. Thank the Lord!

The ultrasound confirmed we are definitely having a boy! He looks great and was really playing around for us. In the picture below, you can see him punching his mommy. ;-) (He's lying on his back, his head is on the right side, and his arm is extended.)

This is a picture of his whole body; again, his head is to the right and he's lying on his back:

And here's a picture of his face. These pictures always freak me out a little because you just see the skeleton of the face, but here it is anyway. :-) That's an arm or shoulder right below his face. (Turn your head to the side to see it!)

Well, we're getting on a plane tomorrow morning. Lots to do before then! Caleb is excited to see his Mimi, Grandad, and Uncle Josh (and so are we!). I'll be back here in about a week.

So exciting! Thank you for sharing these pictures. I am thrilled for you, and I know this son will be an incredible blessing for you and Justin and a wonderful brother to Caleb.

I love you so much, my friend, and I'm glad you're feeling better!!

Congratulations!! Your baby is just beautiful (skeletal face and all). =) I can't wait to "meet" him in just 18 short weeks. Yeah!

Thank you for sharing the ultrasound pictures.

This little guy is going to be very blessed with great parents and a sweet big brother.

Congrats. I am so glad you are going to be feeling better. Pregnancy is hard as it is but being sick for that long, I cannot imagine. You are very brave and strong! Aren't ultrasounds always so much fun? Good luck with your trip.

Shalee said...

Yay to the 2 pounds!!! And I love seeing ultrasounds. They remind me that God has such a better view than we could ever hope to have and He's forming that baby as we type.

Have a safe trip!
