We Made It

Holy Cow I can't believe we finally made it to the half way point! It is so hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that in 20 weeks I will have this precious little baby in my arms. She is growing like a weed! I feel like just the difference from last week to this is a significant difference. We went to a doctors appointment on the 13th of this month and her heartbeat was 141 and I have gained a whole 8lbs!
We went out and bought her the mattress for her crib finally and she received a package from her Auntie Rosie. There was a cute banner for her room, a dress, swimming suit, and a super cute handmade, by Rose herself, card for Miss Lola to read when she gets older. And she also received a package from our dear friend Dianna Krise. She got her very first baby book and it already has writing in it! Thanks guys for the lovely packages Lola is going to love them!
So here are some pics from this past week starting with my big ole belly :)

19 weeks and a doc app

Wow almost half way there! She is getting so big and her features are showing more and more each ultrasound. She is breech as of right now and her heart rate is 133 BPM. The doctors found a calcium deposit commonly known as Echogenic Intracardiac Focus. It isn't as bad as it seems according to the doctor. It is found in babies that have birth defects such as down-syndrome. I went through my first trimester screenings and the test results for any birth defect came back (-). Because of that they aren't to worried about it. But are going to monitor it just incase there becomes more. In some babies they can go away and some will have it for the rest of their lives. Lets home hers goes away! Here are some pics of her ultrasound...

18 weeks 3 days

So I missed posting on Sunday for my 18 week but I have had a lot going on...
Last week I had a doctors appointment but it was just to get a blood draw and it
went very well! I feel Miss Lola moving more and more every day that passes. It is just magic to be able to feel our precious baby movin inside. There is nothing like it! Although I do not like being pregnant I have developed this bond with my belly knowing I have a life I carry around everyday. She has so much love surrounding her already and can't wait until she is here.
