Belly – Week 20

Posted on March 08, 2007

The baby is healthy and developing normally. There are no signs of any developmental problems or defects. The baby was moving around energetically during the entire ultrasound which lasted a little over an hour. It was so amazing to watch the baby move on the screen and feel the movements inside my body at the same time.

When I saw the baby on the screen for the first time, I started crying because it was just so beautiful and it was my baby. It was there, it was alive, and it’s all mine.

I watched as the technician pointed out the hands and feet, but I didn’t need her to show me. I knew, intuitively what everything was, because it was my baby… I just watched in awe as the little critter moved and danced about on the screen. For the first time since my wedding day, I couldn’t stop smiling and tearing up at the same time. It is just so beautiful and amazing to watch a life growing and living inside of your own body. What a blessing!

Now I think about raising this little person inside of me. I wonder who they will grow up to be and what their personality will be like. I have the responsibility to help shape their life and who they will be. What a blessing and yet what a scary, scary thought. I know I can be a good mother to my child and I can’t wait to show them all the wonderful things there are in this world to discover. I won’t keep them too sheltered like my mom did to me. And I won’t neglect them either. I just want my baby to know how much I love it and always feel like they can come to me with anything.

The ultrasound technician got several clear shots between the legs during the hour long ultrasound. We’re having a girl. I couldn’t have been more surprised! I thought from the very beginning that I was having a boy, but I guess my instincts were wrong. I actually always wanted a girl, and I think I thought it was a boy mostly because I was nervous about having a boy. I think it was my way of preparing myself “just in case”.

She’s beautiful, healthy, and I couldn’t be any happier right now. It seems like everything in the world is perfect.
