The Second Ultrasound

All the best from our vacation!

We had the second ultrasound on Wednesday morning and I was much more nervous about it than I thought I would be. Even though I believed that all would be well with the baby, when the day drew closer I couldn't help wondering what if it wasn't. I didn't sleep well at all the night before having weird dreams all night. In all the dreams the baby was fine but depending on the dream the sex of the baby varied and there was always a different song from Korn playing on the background... Interesting!
Finally at 3.30am I gave up and got up, luckily the ultrasound was in the morning so we didn't have to wait too long.

And so, all is well! Everything looked fine but we didn't find out the sex yet as Bebe wasn't in the mood of showing that area. The baby wasn't that active so we concluded that they're not a morning person, just like their dad... and aunt :D We also learned that my placenta is in the front of the belly which explains why I haven't felt the baby move very much.

Luckily we're going to a 4D ultrasound at the beginning of August so hopefully we'll find out the baby's sex then. I have to remember to eat something sweet before it and drink some cold water and if anyone has any other tips on how to get the baby moving I'd love to hear them!

We're in the mid-point of the pregnancy now, on the 21st week, and now that all seems to be well, it's time to start thinking about the nursery. We realized that we should get started with it on our vacation already as we don't know how tired I'll be on the last trimester. So I'll be writing more about that project too once we've picked the furniture and colors.

I was so relieved to hear that all was well with the baby and after the ultrasound we continued our vacation at Hotel Haikon Kartano. We've decided to do several of these mini hotel trips during our vacation and I'm excited we still have several weeks and trips left!
