Today we went for our 20 week anatomy scan (ultrasound). This is baby #3 for us and for some reason I get more and more excited each pregnancy! We have been blessed beyond words and love these little kiddos with all of our hearts.
The kids have been with for every visit so far and it’s been so much fun for them to hear the baby’s heartbeat and see the baby on the 2 ultrasounds I’ve had before today. Today’s visit was the best! As we watched the baby on the screen, Lover Boy and I helped point out the head, face, hands, spine, etc. Laughing Coyote kept telling us that it wasn’t a baby, it was a turtle! I could barley stop laughing!
Baby #3 was super squirmy (just like baby’s #1 & #2!) When the ultrasound first started the little baby was literally doing sit-ups. It was hilarious. Needless to say we weren’t able to get super fantastic photos (no profile shot) because of all it’s moving around.
Here’s some of my favorites of our little turtle!
20 weeks! Half way there!
The sweetest little hand ever!

We chose not to find out the gender. Which for some reason we have caught so much slack for. It seems to really puzzle people that we dont’ want to know what the baby is. I simply explain to everyone that we did not find out with Baby #2 either…and it was the best surprise! When I delivered Laughing Coyote the doctor had said “OK mom, when the baby comes out I’ll hold it up and you announce what it is”. Seeing our sweet baby for the first time and being surprised that he was a boy was just so memorable and like nothing else I could have ever imagine.
