I had my 20 week visit on Monday. Everything was perfect. I've gained 2.5 lbs (one pound of which is Trashboat). My blood pressure was 136/73, so no signs of preeclampsia. Trashboat had no apparent physical defects or other problems, and she's measuring at a little more than 21 weeks, so she will probably be a big baby!

I'm a little astonished that I've only gained 2.5 lbs, but it's clearly not a problem as Trashboat's measurements are perfectly fine and she weighs just what she should.

The ultrasound was fascinating. That technology has really come a long way since I was pregnant with Emma. It was much easier for me to discern the image than it was ten years ago. The second the technician put the device on my belly, she said, "We have a girl!" as Trashboat was very considerately flashing us her lady bits. :) Trashboat was kicking her legs and waving her arms, and at one point, she looked like she was sucking her thumb.

I started being able to feel little flutters of movement around 18 weeks, maybe a little before, but watching her go to town on the ultrasound made it quite apparent just how much movement she's making that I don't feel. It seems that every day, though, I feel movement more frequently and strongly; I'm sure I'll be quite tired of that pretty quick like here.

My mood has kinda taken a hit recently. I've noticed that I've been irritable the past few days, and I'm not sure if that's because I spent the weekend staying up past my bedtime and going too long in between meals or a hormone surge or what. LOL

Basically, Trashboat progresses along in textbook health (as do I), and now all we have to do is agree on her name which is proving a little more difficult than I had anticipated, but we do have time to decide. :)

ETA: I put the ultrasound pictures in a private post because I just realized they have my full name splashed all across them. *headdesk* I'll see if I can edit that out.
