B3 has been cooking now for 19 weeks. He’s almost halfway done! Tomorrow, we have our ultrasound where we get to see things like his face and his heart. I’ll probably explode from excitement (or at least cry) and then I’ll make all of you look at black and white picture of a tiny fetus in a bubble in my wife’s uterus. You’ve been warned.
Amelia’s been feeling him move around for a couple of weeks now. I can’t feel it from the outside yet, but so far, he’s been pretty squirrely when we were at the Lynx game, at the Indigo Girls concert and anytime I come home from work and start yammering way.
Right now, he should be around 6.5 inches long and weigh around 9 ounces. He’s kind of been growing like a weed lately! He’s apparently the size of a large mango, but I don’t know enough about mangos to give me any reference at all. I believe that is a sure sign that I should be hightailing it to somewhere that I can spend a lot of time in a mango grove. Although, another site says he’s the size of an heirloom tomato, so maybe I’ll just go to the grocery store. These vegetable references are kind of played out at this point. How about a hamburger? Is he the size of a Big Mac or something?
The test we had done a while back that also let us know about his sex was only about 98% accurate. Those odds are pretty awesome, but tomorrow we’ll be able to confirm that upon sight. In all likelihood, someone might have to point it out to me, because I’m not super familiar with that particular organ.
Other cool things that we’ll see tomorrow: his ears and eyes are where they’re supposed to be. His eyebrows are apparently complete, so I’m kind of excited about whether or not we’ll see this little guy with a unibrow tomorrow.
We powered through his bedroom for a while, but kind of pumped the brakes right around Memorial Day for no other reason than I think we were just tired of finding places to put things that were in the room formerly known as the office, now known as the baby’s room/elliptical trainer room. We’ve gotta reorganized our basement a little bit, because we both had forgotten that 17 year old organization is quite different than adult organization. Once we’ve got that under control, this baby’s room should be ready to be painted!
Car shopping is next on our list, after summer classes and after our trip to New York. Until then, I’m putting myself on a freeze when it comes to buying things for him, mainly because I keep losing track of what I’ve already bought. It’s safe to say that Children’s Place taunts me daily, but the last time I’ve looked, I’ve seriously ALREADY BOUGHT EVERYTHING.
