20 weeks

20 weeks of pregnancy behind me, 20 more to go! Pregnancy is really the craziest thing ever. We went to the doctor this week and had a second ultrasound done. The doctor confirmed one more time that there is a girl in there. Actually, what he said was, "If it's a boy, we know it's a boy. If it's a girl, it's probably a girl." Comforting, huh!? He was pretty confident, so I am choosing to be also! We will have a final ultrasound in about 10 weeks. I guess we'll check again then! :)
She is moving around quite a bit in there! It sort of feels like little pieces of popcorn popping every now and then. We've been able to hear her heartbeat whenever we want thanks to a wonderful friend who loaned her hospital grade heartbeat monitor to us. Her heartbeat is truly the most magical sound ever. It just doesn't get old hearing it.
Already she is a huge fan of John Mayer and Sara Groves. Also, she really enjoys Dr. Seuss books. I guess that's the teacher in me. It's a great, fun, wonderful time and I feel so blessed and a little afraid that God is trusting Shawn and me with this huge task. Should be interesting!!!
