Lots of firsts!

Last night I saw my belly move on it's own for the first time! Then Matt was also able to feel Eli moving for the first time!! After all that, I went to bed and then felt hiccups for the first time too! I guess he really wanted to make his presence known.

I had my 20 week checkup with my doctor yesterday as well. The baby's heart rate was 160. The doctor said everything with the ultrasound looked right where it needs to be. His head and bone measurements are exact for my due date, but his belly is measuring a week ahead. This could mean that he's a little chubby, or that the measurements were just off at the ultrasound. I guess we'll find out in a few months when we meet the little guy. :)

It's a BOY!!

Yesterday we went in for the big 19 week ultrasound and found out that the baby is a boy! Cole is thrilled, Rylie is a little sad, but once he's here I know she'll love him. ;)

Eli Patrick's first photo shoot:
The ultrasound itself was a little rocky. He was hiding his face the whole time, but wasn't shy about his gender. His body was looking towards my back which made it impossible to get the pictures she needed. The technician had to tilt the table backwards so my head was towards the ground- let me tell you that is NOT comfortable when you have low blood pressure to start with. Then I had to drink more water, empty my bladder, walk and move around, and they still had to do a vaginal ultrasound to attempt getting good pictures. Finally, after all that we went back to the regular ultrasound and I felt him flip. She finally got all the measurements she needed and he measured right at 19 weeks 1 day, just as my original due date suggests.
