30 Days of Thanks: Day 5-A healthy baby

Today Landen and I went for our 20 week ultrasound.
We were able to see Baby O for the second time, but the first time it just looked like a troll (7 weeks).
We got to see him/her move around, move its fingers, and at one point it looked like it was sucking on it's thumb.
The Dr. said that everything looked great. Right now we are at 15 ounces and around 9 inches long. I'm carrying a piece of spaghetti.

Favorite conversation of the day:
Me: So that little area is my cervix?
Ultrasound Tech: Yes
Me: And the baby has to be delivered through the cervix?
UT: Yes
Me: Crap.

let's just say that my cervix is waaayy smaller than Baby O.

Someone told me last night that it has become the norm for people to just expect to have a normal, healthy, baby. But if we could stop and think about all the little things that could go wrong at anytime, we would realize what a complete miracle it actually is.
I am completely thankful that today we got good news.
Although when it comes to news of the gender...
we're playing the waiting game. Although everyone else is cracking us up by trying to figure it out. My dad even got out his magnifying glass.
What do you think it is?


What are you thankful for today?

I'd love for you to join me on this journey of discovering all the things we are thankful for! Make sure to link up below so I can read your amazing posts!


  1. Congratulations!!

    I just started following your blog!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. What a sweet post! I think it's going to be a girl, but don't quote me on that ;0)

    Needless to say, my post isn't quite making its way to this post, but will double up tomorrow! Love that you're so structured with yourself!

  3. Not sure what the heck happened, but I am re-following your blog ... it seemed to have disappeared off of my list of blogs I follow! Yikes!

  4. It's good to hear that all is going well with baby O...I am not good at this stuff and I sure as heck cannot read an ultrasound but if I had to guess I would say "It's a girl"...if you are like me it doesn't matter as long as it's healthy and your life is filled with happiness!!
