We are officially in the second trimester.
My face is breaking out.
I don't fit in my jeans.
I get super sleepy throughout the day.
And I wouldn't change one bit of this!
Me + J spontaneously scheduled a 3D ultrasound appointment and went in that same day. We didn't really plan for them to be available that soon, but we jumped at the chance to see little Baby Stratton!
Seeing the baby for the second time, was such a beautiful moment. We held hands as we gazed at the giant screen that showed our little moving baby, I am still in awe that I am going to be a mother.
We heard our little one's heartbeat (154) and watched as it moved its arms behind its head, and squirm its legs.
We also got a gender prediction and were told an educated guess on what our baby is.
Being told that, just made everything that much more real and the love I have for our baby already is unconditional!
We will be announcing later and in a cute way J actually came up with. Seeing him get so excited about this pregnancy makes me so happy to have a partner equally excited for this baby and our journey to parenthood.
Seeing our baby from other angles, and not just from the one at 8 weeks, was so amazing! I am in love with the baby's profile and little nose! The baby seems super comfortable in there even if it does look so squished! haha
I definitely need to get bigger to give this little one some room, because it has some long arms and legs.
Here is a jump back to last week and how my 13 week went! I definitely feel like my bump has become more defined this week so I'm glad I've been taking weekly bump shots.
Thank you for stopping by The Strattons Blog! Here are snippets of my life, motherhood, and the military!
