18, 19, and 20 Weeks {Bumpdates}

These weeks just flyin’ on by. I guess that’s what happens when you have a toddler who keeps you on your toes all day, every day! We also went on a trip this week—we’re home in New Mexico for the next few weeks to break up the deployment a bit more. Anywho, here are my latest bumpdates and a quick little note to my newest baby!

Dear PJ,
Holy cannoli, we’re halfway done already! You’re currently the size of an endive or a mango, and, more importantly: you’re a healthy baby GIRL! Your papa and I got to see you “together” last week, and it was by far one of the coolest experiences of my life. I haven’t seen you since you looked like a grain of rice around six weeks, so naturally, I cried when I saw your two arms, two legs, and your lovely little face. I also got to see your heart beat, which is simply one of the most amazing things in the entire world. You were a little shy and kept your legs crossed for most of the anatomy scan (good girl!), but the technician managed to see what she needed to see, and said we should go buy some pink outfits. Don’t worry—you won’t only wear the clothes your sister wore; I’ve already bought you a few new things!

I feel you move often now. You like when I eat or drink, because I feel you squirm just after the food/drink settles in my tummy. Last night even felt you kick for the first time! I got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and when I got back into bed I felt those familiar blumps that I felt with your sister. You’re still much lower than she was, so I can only feel you when I’m flat on my back, but it makes me so excited for the next 20 weeks. 

Speaking of your sister—she keeps us both on our toes! She already give you kisses and says, “hi baby,” and I just know the two of you are going to be fantastic friends. Hopefully she’ll be a good big sister, but go easy on her for the first few weeks/months since this will be a transition for her, too. 

Stay comfy in my belly, little one! I can’t wait to meet you, but you still have a lot of cooking left to go.

Love you, my little love bug!

  1. So sweet. My son loves to talk to his unborn sister too and kiss my belly. So excited for you! The ultrasound rocks, but, oh the sound of the heartbeat is like music to the ears. I did find it amusing that your little girl played modest just like mine did at this stage and we almost didn't get to find out the gender. Meanwhile my son was full on, "check out my stuff!" during his gender u/s. LOL Glad I had the opportunity to meet you at Type-A last weekend!
