Hippo's Halfpoint

Hippo 2 is officially halfway done- we are 21 weeks tomorrow, so actually a little more than halfway. We went to the doc today and had our big ultrasound, where they take all the baby's measurements and -yes- find out the sex of the baby. But, wait, there's more...


We had the ultrasound lady write the sex of the baby on a card and seal it in an envelope and we plan to open it on Larry's birthday next week, the 31st. This was his idea, and he somehow got me to agree, so now we all have to wait another week to find out! Trust me- it's hard for me too!! Which is why Larry took the card with him and hid it at his office- he wouldn't even let me hold it in the car because, & I admit it, I'd peek! So you all have one more week to make your predictions and then we'll have the big reveal...


It was fun to see little Hippo bouncin around in there today. Kiddo is very healthy, everything is where and how big it's supposed to be. Hippo actually measured a little big for my Dec. 5th due date, so maybe this one will come a few days early. Fine with me!! Hippo was actually unusually active this morning, so our pictures are a little blurry, but trust me, it's a precious, perfect little baby in there! (I tried to label the pictures, so you can actually see what they are of.)
Profile of Hippo's head- the "bubble" above the mouth is actually the cord.

Hippo's little feet, kicking!


I'm feeling good too- have most of my energy and more than enuf appetite back from the first trimester. Georgia's keeping me on a strict cardio plan of running after her, picking things up all day and good ol' laughter! I think she's working on her big sis skills, as she's been extra bosy to Bernie lately. Poor pup doesn't know what's coming...


Feel free to comment on your predictions as to Hippo 2 being a boy or girl, and tune it next week for the big reveal! (If I can get ahold of the envelope before then, I'll let you know! ;) )

Yay! I'm so glad yesterday went well! I don't know how you are going to wait a week, but if you find out before then, let me know!

So glad Miss Georgia is helping mommy stay in good shape! She knows you hate to exercise so she is just "helping". You keep building a healthy little hippo #2 and she'll get ready to be a big sister!!! I gotta find her some big sister clothes- a whole new shopping opportunity awaits us girls!!! The New York pictures are so great and I think Matt and Sandy need to send the one with their AU shirts in front of the statue of liberty to the Auburn newsletter as its great!! hugs to all the hippo's in bham!! Can't wait for labor day visitors!!! grammie
