24 weeks!!!

These last few weeks have flown by! I cant believe we only have sixteen more weeks (or maybe less) to meet this adorable baby boy! It is so exciting to see him move and be healthy!

I have been so lucky to have seen him on several ultrasounds, the last one being yesterday. Last month during the twentieth week ultrasound they noticed the fluid is his kidneys was a little higher than average so the doctor had us do another ultrasound this month to check. This time we were so relieved to find out that the fluid in his kidneys has gone gone down quite a bit and he is within normal ranges now. So grateful for that!

The wonderful ultrasound technician at the doctor's office has always been so kind and patient to allow me to take many pictures of my baby and to show us some awesome 3D views. Here are some amazing ones that I been looking at several times a day. It is so exciting to see his little body parts so cute and well defined, and to see some facial features. I like to try to see who he looks like more, my husband or me? I guess we will soon know. So far though, I can tell he inherited my husband's gigantic size 14 feet! :-)

I remember when nesting time hit me with my first child. I was about seven months pregnant and I couldn't stop cleaning the house, setting stuff for the baby, trying to buy little clothes and blankets. I remember I had to tell myself not to pack up a hospital suitcase quite yet, and not to buy too much stuff for the baby.

I had often wondered how it would be like this time around considering that I am not carrying the belly, but I can honestly tell you that it is no different. Not a bit different at all! And, to be totally honest with you, I think nesting time has hit me even a little early this time around. I started getting rid of some of the numerous toys my daughter has that currently inundate the one room in our house that will be our baby boy's room. I have been bugging my husband to get someone to make a decent closet in that room and we have someone coming next week to start working on a brand new closet for that bedroom. Yay!!!! I've been also telling myself, once again, not to buy a bunch of baby boy stuff quiet yet...

Today we are 23 weeks. Wow! I can't believe I will have him with me in just 17 more weeks. for all those who are wondering if there is some type of a bond between me and this baby considering these circumstances. I can only say that there absolutely is! I think about this baby day and night. He is always in mind, just as it was with my first pregnancy. I just don't have the belly to prove it! ;-)
