19 week ultra sound!

Today I had my 19 week ultra sound :) This is typically how long parents have to wait to see their little one for the first time. I'm so glad we paid more to go to Fetal Studio. Their photos were so sharp and clear!
Anyway, this appointment was a lot different than I expected. I laid there on a hospital bed while the ultra sound technician took around 80 photos of my baby, uterus, placenta and so on. Our baby was being a very wiggly girl, which made their picture taking a little more difficult! ha, Finally 45 minutes in to the ultra sound she showed us pictures of our beautiful little girl! Here's what we got...

While they were trying to get the gender photo, she had her hands between her legs playing with the umbilical cord! They thought it was quite hilarious and snapped a photo of her pointer finger :)
 Cute little footsy!
Aaaand it's still a girl! Of course, but just in case anyone was wondering if she changed into a boy over the past 5 weeks ;)
At the very end of the ultra sound I was told that the baby is measuring to be 19 weeks and 3 days! Here I thought I was one day shy of 19 weeks :) Her new due date is March 25th instead of the 29th!! Woo hoo!
Also, Ian took pictures of me yesterday to show off my 4... almost 5 month baby bump!!

This stage of the pregnancy has been going REALLY well. I'm still not sure if I'm actually feeling the baby move or kick. Some days I worry because I don't feel anything. Luckily today I was told she is a very wiggly girl. I'm sure I'll be able to feel her move more frequently within the next few weeks. I also haven't been feeling very sick or tired. Just a little heart burn here and there, plus mild back aches. I'm excited for my belly to get a little bigger to where I actually LOOK pregnant. Can't wait for what I'll be experiencing within the next few months! :)
