it's a...


...GIRL!

We had our second ultrasound yesterday and were told that I have a healthy little baby girl in my belly. Ultrasound is truly super fascinating. We could see (and hear) our little girl's heart beat, we saw her lying with her feet above her head, stretching her feet and yawning. Amazing. So, so amazing.

I'm at 19 weeks* today and I'm feeling fine. I've felt pretty fine all along in fact, and I hope it continues this way. My belly now looks a bit more like a baby belly, not just a I-had-too-much-too-eat-belly. Soon we will start renovating our apartment to make room for our little girl. Needless to say, we have exciting times ahead.


*Before I got pregnant I thought a pregnancy was nine months. This week thing was new to me. In reality a pregnancy is about 40 weeks and pregnant ladies like to keep track of how many weeks they are along, not months. Well, of course some don't keep track at all and some do count months instead of weeks - you understand what I mean, right?

  22. Å! Så gøy! Så ser hun jo så søt ut på bildet også! Helt sprøtt at det går an med 3d-bilder...
    19 + 4 og sånt, ja? Jeg var nok en teller. Men ikke like slavisk med sistemann, hehe!
    Godt å høre formen er fin.

  23. Gratulerer så mye! Mitt beste tips til deg er VENT MED OPPUSSING. Er selv 31 uker på vei, og har holdt på med oppussing i månedsvis. Bruk heller tiden til avslapning og kos, og ta oppussingen siden. Har aldri vært mer sliten!

  24. That is one of the most amazing "photographs" I've seen on your blog yet! How very exciting! (The other thing you find out is that your due date is just the middle of a four-week span of time.)

  25. Jippi! Er det rart å si at jeg synes barnet allerede ligner litt på deg? Haha. Hun gjør jo det :) Søøøøt!!

  37. Gratulerer med en liten pike i magen. Husker jeg var rimelig overrasket over uketellingen,og hvordan jeg i svangerskap 1 hadde stålkontroll på uke og dag. Mens jeg nå i nr 2 måtte inn og sjekke appen når folk spurte....
    Kos deg med svangerskapet videre,godt å høre at du er i form
    Irene.
