It's been a long week, baby-wise. On Tuesday I had my 20 week OB appointment. Everything was fine, except I had sugar in my urine. So I had to pee in another cup, only to find more sugar. I was given an order to get my gestational diabetes test done early. The doctor was also concerned with my ultrasound results. We knew that the tech didn't get the spine length or gender but apparently she also missed the heart. Again. Same as with the Monster Baby.

The doctor came in immediately, poked around for a minute, told us the sex (he's 100% sure) and checked all the organs in record time. He rattled off a list of everything in the human body, stating it was developing and functioning properly. The heart rate is still good and the baby is now 14oz, having doubled since our last ultrasound 2 weeks ago. The baby's size is perfect to the day. He told me to come back in 8 weeks for another ultrasound, to make sure everything is progressing on track. So, yeah, more pictures in 2 months.
Here's our pictures from this visit. First is a head shot and the second is a gender shot. It's a ...
