21 Weeks and Counting
They took its measurements and made sure all the necessary body parts were there. We even saw it yawn! Or scream, either way. Here you can see the baby's arm curled up by its head. And the little black dot on its belly is the belly button! Also my uterus is there somewhere.
We are going with a midwife because 1. it's cheaper. And 2. they usually aren't as busy as doctors, so they can spend more time with you as a patient. They also have some good techniques for helping with labor pains. Although we are not going the strictly natural root. I'm all for stabbing my spine with needles so I feel nothing below the waist.
So things are looking good. I'm healthy, the baby is healthy, and the pets still have no idea of what awaits them in 4 months. Although, to be fair, Dan and I don't really either.
