Our baby boy...


We got our second peek at Jackson yesterday morning! It was such a fun experience. He really put on a show for us...I think he has a cute personality already! Our appointment was at 8:00. I like being the first appointment of the day! We invited my mom to come along with us to see her grandson for the first time. We had to go back for a second ultrasound because the technician could not get all the pictures she needed of his heart the first time. He was laying perfectly for her as soon as she started the ultrasound, so she got the pictures of his heart immediately. Then we got to have some fun. Jayson was able to get a video of Jackson's most active time. His legs were behind his head. He was grabbing his feet several times. Once, he lost grip of his foot and kept grabbing for it. It was so cute! He yawned a few times, and moved his mouth like he was talking to us. Then, he gave us the peace sign! At first it looked like he was shooting us, then he moved his fingers into the peace sign. He was very active. He is in the breech position right now. His legs and feet are directly on my cervix and bladder...which explains the massive amount of pressure I have been feeling. I am ready for him to move up! But, he seems happy and healthy, so I guess I should be happy too. He is still a boy--Jayson asked a few times during the ultrasound. LOL. He weighs 1 pound, 4 ounces now. He is right in the 50th percentile. So, he is exactly where he should be! After that, we went next door to talk to Dr. Riley. Very short. Basically he just told us that everything looks great. Then he gave me my stuff to drink for the glucose test. I could choose between orange and fruit punch. I chose orange. I am scared to drink it! I go for that test on July 15th. Right after we get back from our vacation. We are leaving for Massachusetts/Maine on Monday, June 29th. I can't wait! I need a vacation so bad! I am 22 weeks now. The fruit pictures only happen once a month now, so I will save that for next week. I am feeling him move a lot more now. Jayson has been able to feel him move, too! Tuesday night we were watching TV and we could see my belly moving. It was the weirdest thing! My growing belly is making it hard for me to sit with my legs crossed or to get up off of the floor after sitting for a while. I have gained about 12 pounds so far, which isn't bad. I'm over halfway through! Less than 4 months now till my due date. Well, that is all for now. See you soon for a week 23 update!
