I had my 22/23 weeks check-up on Wednesday, and everything looks great! Baby's heartbeat is perfect, she's kicking around like crazy, and I finally gained some weight. I got a lecture at my last appointment because I had only gained 2 pounds in my entire pregnancy up until that point (even though my belly was already pretty big). Apparently all that king cake did the trick!
And yes, I said SHE! I think we've already told most everyone, but my 20-wk ultrasound revealed that baby Powers #2 is another girl! Andrew says we're going to try for #3 now, but I think he is failing to take the following information into consideration:
- We've yet to win the Louisiana lottery,
- Baby #3 could also very likely be a girl (there being a 50/50 chance and all), and
- He is a really great Daddy to little girls.
Caption: Apparently baby girl already shares her father's proclivity for mooning people.
