It's a Boy!

We had our first ultrasound on Friday and we are having a baby boy. Everything looks good and is right on average with where it should be. The technician was having a difficult time getting all the measurements because he was moving all over the place...looks like were in for a ride. Before you go to your appt. they tell you to drink a full glass of water about an hour before, so I did just that, and when I got on the table, and got the warm goo squeezed all over my stomach, she was like "holy cow, your bladder is too full, it's cornering the baby" I did have to go to the bathroom pretty bad, but that's normal these days. I didn't know that I pin him in a corner every time I have to pee, now I feel bad when I have to wait to go. They gave us the 4D pictures of his little face, it's amazing that you can see everything! I think he has Derek's nose, which is perfect because I love Derek's nose:) I can't believe I'm 22 weeks already, we really need to stop procrastinating and get some stuff done.

Last night was a little scary. All afternoon yesterday I was feeling uncomfortable, which I just thought was normal. Then I got home after work, took a nap and when I woke up, it was so painful to even slouch a little bit and breath, all I could do was lay on my side as straight as I could. I didn't know what to do, what's normal, what's not? Even if I went to Urgent care, they wouldn't have my files. So I called a friend and she said it was probably from the baby growing and stretching my muscles in my abdomen. I decided to wait it out and call the nurse in the morning, she said to just keep an eye on it. I felt a little better today, I was still pretty sore, but there wasn't a shooting pain like last night. I have the greatest husband on earth! He is so caring, loving and comforting. He made me supper last night, which he does quite often anyway, but usually I'm in helping. He's just so sweet! I love him so much!
