Our little Kennedy is getting so big! We were in for our 20 week ultrasound on Saturday and got to enjoy an hour long ultrasound while the doctor checked out our little bambina. We were very pleased to hear the word "normal" throughout the entire hour! Kennedy is average in size, has a perfectly looking heart and brain, 2 kidneys, a bladder, 2 lungs, 2 legs, 2 arms, toes and fingers and a heart beat of about 152. Everything looked perfect! Kennedy is about 10 1\2 ounces right now and about 10 inches long. We got a few good pictures while we were there:
Kennedy sucking her thumb. I find this to be adorable and have gotten to see her do this at the last couple of appointments! The doctor said that this is a very good sign and means that she is swallowing, she knows how to self sooth, and will have an easier time latching on when I nurse her.
Now officially at the half way mark I am feeling really good. I am noticeably pregnant but other than the weight gain, occasional lower back pain and heartburn I feel completely normal. This pregnancy has been easy so far (knock on wood) and hopefully it continues this way until we bring little Kennedy home.
