Lakeon's Pregnancy Journal: Week 20 & Gender Reveal

Doctor Appointments: 
Nov. 27-- We had our gender ultrasound and confirmed that we are having... A BOY!! Exactly what we all hoped for. Brantley weighs in at 11 ounces so far. All of his limbs and organs look great. He was super active and doing flips while we were trying to find out his gender. Heartbeat was 143 this time, so it slowed down A LOT compared to the last heartbeats which were 175 and 163.


Food cravings: Cherry-limeade. Dr. Pepper. Salt & Vinegar chips.

Symptoms: Brantley moves so much now, especially after 12 midnight. That must mean he will be a night owl like his sister and I. Oh no!!

Weight gain: I haven't gained or lost anything since my last appointment. So far I've gained 9 pounds for this pregnancy.

Measurements: (while lying down)
Below the navel- 36.5 inches.
Above the navel- 34 inches.

Chloe's thoughts: Chloe is very excited that she's having a brother. She can't wait until "brantwee" gets here so she can play with him. She's been practicing being a big sister with her baby doll. I must say, she does a pretty great job!
