Little Bird - 22w 0d

I went to the doctor yesterday and got to see Little Bird! He is growing, growing, growing - he weighs about 1lb, 3oz and is measuring about 1.5 weeks ahead at this point. Heart rate was 148bpm.

He is either very stubborn or just a momma's boy, because he still wouldn't cooperate enough to get a profile measurement. The tech was able to get a view from the top of his head enough to see that he does not have a cleft lip, which is a relief. Basically he is hugging my spine (hence the reason I'm still not showing too much) and is rather comfy. The tech tried and tried and tried to get him to roll over, and he would start to and then decide to roll back. Oh well, after about 5 minutes, she said we'd just *have* to look again next time!

So, at 26 weeks I'll get to have my 8th sonogram! The tech joked that soon I'd have enough for an album... so I pulled the little brag book I carry in my purse and showed her that I already do! So proud of my LB!  


  1. Awww, you should be proud! Since I have been TTC for two years now, the mere mention of someone else with a baby normally makes me spin into depression. But, I love hearing about all your milestones. It makes me hopeful that it will happen for me too. Good luck in the rest of your pregnancy!

  2. so snug in there with mama...I wish we could see the little face as I'm sure you do too!!! It must be nice to have an album so early on :)

  3. Ahhhh, he's a perfect little cutie. You're doing awesome, Mama!! xoxo
