21 Week Update: It's A Girl!!

Posted by Amy O. , Monday, December 12, 2011 4:44 PM

We found out today that we're having a girl!!  According to our doctor, she looks "perfect" at 21 weeks!  Here's a shot of her sweet little face.

And me, a few days before our appointment.

I have to say, I'm loving - LOVING! - this stage of pregnancy.  The last few weeks, I've been feeling great, my skin is consistently clearer than it's been in like 20 years, my belly is only slightly inconvenient, I get to wear all the fun new-to-me (thanks, Emily & Vera!) clothes, and I've been feeling Baby O's twists & turns since just before Week 20.  I love feeling her move; at this stage, it's so reassuring and not at all painful, though I'm sure that's on the way.  It's unexplainably amazing to have this live being inside my body and feeling her (as well as knowing she's a she) has made it so much more realistic.  I know there's all sorts of weirdness and painfulness and inconvenience ahead, but this part (unlike the first few months) have been really fun and exciting, and I really feel the honor and blessing of carrying a child inside me, something I have wanted for so long now!

That is the best ultrasound face picture I've ever seen! So sweet! The ones of my girls always looked like creepy skeletons. (Glad they turned out to have cute faces after all...)
