Today I had the most wonderful opportunity to get a 2nd ultrasound. Baby is now almost 20 weeks along! It was the most incredible thing in the world for Zack and I to see our little GIRL on the screen! God is so wonderful. I just don't know how to thank Him enough for this precious gift.
She is quite an active little one too, making it difficult for the ultrasound technician to take her measurements. It was so encouraging to see that, as I still have not been able to feel her. And believe me, I was having a hard time not getting worried. Turns out though, that the reason I haven't been able to feel Baby yet is because the placenta formed over my belly, putting a lot of extra thickness between me and her. Apparently, this is not at all uncommon, it just depends on where the baby implants in the uterus.
Sweetest of all was to see that Baby Lawrence is a thumb sucker already! And even spent most of the ultrasound sucking away, not letting us see her face. Silly little girl! :-D
Oh little one, we can't wait to meet you!
