Week 18- Second trimester ultrasound! We are having a....

A perfect Boy or Girl! We did not want to find out. I went today for the second trimester ultrasound and all looks perfect. The tech took tons of pictures of everything. She said the baby is a mover and loves to suck his/her thumb. Its hands were always by its mouth. My mom said I came out sucking my thumb. So my little munchkin takes after me.

Whats up with Baby S this week:
Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long and he weighs almost 7 ounces. He's busy flexing his arms and legs — movements that you'll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead. Your fetus has become amazingly mobile (at least compared to you), passing the hours yawning, hiccuping, rolling, twisting, kicking, punching, sucking and swallowing. And, baby's finally big enough that you'll be able to feel those movements soon. His blood vessels are visible through his thin skin, and his ears are now in their final position, although they're still standing out from his head a bit. A protective covering of myelin is beginning to form around his nerves, a process that will continue for a year after he's born. If you're having a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If you're having a boy, his genitals are noticeable now, but he may hide them from you during an ultrasound.

Here are some belly pictures from yesterday.
