There's the head! And, if you look close, you can see a hand or arm.
A nice, strong leg!
Even though the legs are strong, I haven't felt the baby moving around all that much. A few little blips every now and then. During the ultrasound yesterday, the baby was moving a LOT but I felt nothing! I hope to feel something in the coming weeks.
The best part of the experience was seeing the heart beating strong and sure, and learning that everything looks good, normal, healthy! I thank God that things are going well. So far I have had an easy and smooth pregnancy - no morning sickness, no strange cravings (or, none I can't do anything about anyway!). I hope that this continues...and maybe it means a nice, smooth (pain free?) delivery?
In case you haven't picked up on it, we're not finding out the sex of Baby. We're up for the surprise!
(Those of you paying close attention might have noticed that the picture has the name "Samuel Kaguongo" at the top. No, this is not the name of the baby. Just a little glitch in the system, and my info didn't get entered prior to the ultrasound).
The plan is to deliver here at Kijabe Hospital when the time comes (late March, early April). At the moment, Kijabe doesn't offer Epidurals -- or any real kind of pain medicine -- for delivery. Should be an adventure! Anyone have tips on how to survive it?
Because traveling while pregnant is not advised after a certain time (30ish weeks) we'll be heading to the US for Thanksgiving! I'm excited to see family and for Dexter to experience a real American holiday in America. Plus, we'll be on the hunt for some snow. Probably in Maine. It will be a quick trip - just two weeks - but we're really looking forward to it.
And for those of you wondering: we're still not in our house!
