Second Child Syndrome

On Monday, I had my 24 week OB appointment and we got some great pictures. Then, I realized I hadn’t even posted the 20 week pictures! Bad mommy and poor little second child!

So, without further ado, 20 weeks gestation.

She’s doing her runner stretches already!

She was breech during this ultrasound and apparently bored as she kept playing with her toes.

This might be one of the coolest pictures ever. She gives us the thumbs up as parents already 🙂

Because of her position, we weren’t able to get good facial shots. She’s looking at us in this picture, forehead to the left, body to the right.

Same position as the above picture, but in this one, she’s trying to suck her thumb. It’s so cool to see how different she is than Marion already. They say if they suck their thumb in the belly, they’ll be thumb suckers when born. We never saw Mar even try to suck her thumb and she never really took a pacifier when born. It will be interesting to see what Ginger does when she’s here!

Alien baby!

Another amazing photo. She’s about 12 ounces in this picture, almost a whole pound! And exactly what Marion weighed at this age too.

And yes, she’s still a girl!

Because she was in such a funny position for that ultrasound (and stubborn enough not to move) they couldn’t get very clear pictures of her spine and legs. Which just meant we got an additional ultrasound at 24 weeks. Two ultrasounds actually, the same as Marion. When I went in, I drank my nasty glucose drink for the diabetes test, then went for the ultrasound. She was just chilling, being non cooperative. But it let us get some great profile shots!

It might look like she’s blowing bubbles, but she’s not.

The bubbles are actually the umbilical cord. It was apparently tickling her face and so she was trying to move it away by blowing on it. Silly girl!

She’s got a super cute nose, doesn’t she?

The glucose had definitely kicked in by the end of my appointment and she had flipped back down to head first, so they were able to get the measurements they needed. She’s still perfect! 🙂 And just like with Marion, I was measuring 26 weeks instead of 24. It’s funny that they have very different personalities already but are also so similar in other ways. I guess that’s what happens when you are sisters!

And for fun

Marion is on the left, Ginger on the right. Both at 24 weeks.
