Another Ultrasound And Four Months!

I am now four months pregnant. It's hard to believe that in just a little over five months, I'll be holding Babykins in my arms!

Last week, I was able to have another ultrasound! To make a long story short, I was having some concerns about some fluid leakage; it doesn't look to be amniotic fluid, but it beats me as to what it was.

No more fluid problems since last week, and the doctor I like gave me some pH paper to test anything suspicious at home, but you know I always want your prayers! There doesn't appear to be anything to worry about, so I'm just going to take it easy and watch it for now. We're just trusting in the Lord about the whole thing - I know He'll always be there for us, no matter what might happen.

Anyway, they ended up doing an ultrasound to make sure there was enough amniotic fluid around the baby, and I was perfectly fine with that. It just makes you feel better sometimes to be able to see your baby.

Everything looked great, and Babykins is measuring a couple days big again! It makes me so happy to know for sure that the baby is growing well. The ultrasound tech didn't seem to appreciate my questions (I tend to ask alot of questions), otherwise I would tell you for sure how big our little one is.

The ultrasound tech also wasn't the best at taking good pictures. Babykins was in a sleep cycle again during the ultrasound, but I think he/she could sense the pressure on my belly, because the baby started waving his/her little arms around, and brushing his/her face. It was so adorable! I really wish she had taken a picture of that, because it was just precious.

We did get a profile shot and a picture of Babykin's tiny hand! The profile isn't the best, because you can't see the sweet little nose (which I could see before, when Baby was rubbing his/her face), but still cute, I think.






As for me, my pants are getting tight. There are a couple pairs that I can still kind of button, but it's rather uncomfortable. I've been very tired and I'm having some headaches this week, but nothing too terrible. And lots of heartburn. That baby is going to have hair!

To the general public, I still don't really look preggo, I just look like I have a muffin top. But I can sure tell! Here's the most recent belly shots.









Do you know, my baby is six or seven inches long now? My goodness! How am I not showing more than that? Six or seven inches is so big!

In summary, I'm feeling great, the baby and I are both getting bigger, and as always, your prayers for a healthy pregnancy mean so much to me!

Now I just have to decide how long to suffer with my normal pants . . .

I found your blog through a link on Hope Road and have been enjoying & encouraged by your posts.

My first little one (a son) is almost 7 months old. Your post today caused me to think back to last fall when I started wearing maternity clothes and how glad I was when I switched!

I loved being pregnant and think it is such a sweet gift. I love that you are celebrating each milestone and change in pregnancy!

look at that sweet little hand! So happy to hear that the baby is healthy! Will continue to pray for you!

Jenene said...

Aw, that must be so cool to see your baby on the screen! I'll have to wait until 20 weeks to get that privilege.

And I can't believe your not showing more either! I looked in the mirror last night before bed, and I definitely looked pregnant. I'm just getting so round!

Then again, you are tall and quite slim. I'm so short, so there's nowhere to hide this belly! :)

That's pretty rude of the ultrasound tech! She/He should be used to pregnant mommies wanting to know as much as possible about their babies.

Also I say just go for maternity pants. I hear they are amazing!

Congratulations to you, too!!! Such great news...you're a couple weeks ahead of me and look great! Do you plan on finding out the gender? Hoping everything continues to go well for your pregnancy...

Your looking great and I am glad to hear Babykins is growing so well! You certainly look pregnant to me :)

Amber said...

Aw! So cute!! Glad everything looks ok!

I feel ya on the pants being tight even though I'm not there yet! All I ever want to do is wear sweat pants these days! I say just go for the comfy maternity clothes!

Anna said...

You are such a pretty pregnant lady!

Oh yes, I remember that weird transition stage between regular clothes and maternity clothes. Have you heard of Bella Band? Mine is from Target, and it really helped because I could wear it over my unbuttoned jeans and make those last longer.

Melanie said...

Your looking great Callie! Loved the ultrasound pics (esp the little hand!!!)! Will be praying for you..prayer never hurts! Go and splurge on yourself some pregnancy jeans girl..if your jeans are starting to get tight you definately should..will help you to keep even more comfortable too!
BTW..love how you changed your header (first time I've seen it that way anyways)..what a great picture!!

Brittany Ann said...

Amanda said...

You look so great!! I know what you mean about looking pregnant! To me, I think I do because I see how much I have grown. But it is right on the border of looking pregnant for sure!!
