Okay, I am actually 21 weeks along now…but I took my 20 week baby bump photo a week ago, and am just now having the chance to sit down and write an update. Last week we were given the opportunity to get away and stay with some friends in Florida. It was a much needed break, and we had lots of fun as a family. So thankful for that time!
Now that we are back, I am ready to share a little 20-21 Week Pregnancy Update with you!
At our 20-week check up we had our “big” ultrasound where they go in and check everything. The doctor said that Gideon was very cooperative, and they were able to see everything they needed to…AND everything looked “absolutely perfect.” I cannot even begin to tell you how reassuring those words are. What a great blessing this healthy baby is to us!
We loved getting to sit there for half an hour watching our little guy on the screen. It’s the next best thing to getting to hold him in my arms, which I am so looking forward to!

Lately I have been feeling amazing! This past week I had more energy than I have had for a very long time. It probably helped that we were spending lots of time at the beach and had lots of time for rest. But I also think I’ve hit that “sweet spot” in pregnancy where I feel like myself again. I plan on making good use of this time and will try and get as much done in preparation for little Gideon’s arrival before I enter the third trimester.
One thing we were told at our appointment is that Gideon is measuring about a week larger than they expected. I wasn’t surprised though…Liam was the same, and it just appears that I have big babies. Jonathan and I were rather large babies ourselves, so I guess it runs in the family!
Thanks to everyone for all your prayers throughout this pregnancy. It is such a joy getting to share this with so many loved ones. We are so excited for all that God has in store for our family!
