20w1d

Or read that as 20 weeks 1 day. That is how pregnant I was when we lost Clarence and that is how pregnant I am today.
We had our anatomy scan yesterday. Everything was just wonderful. Healthy and thriving, moving and posing. So different from our 20 week with Clarence. I mean he appeared to be thriving and growing just fine. Some of his measurements were a week or a few days behind, which is totally normal. But he wasn't active @ all. But because he had a strong HB, there was really no concern.
We found out we are having a boy! I think Clarence had a little something to do with that. What a little angel he is. I was worried how I would feel about another son. I am absolutely happy though....and nervous! I only know about little baby girls so far. A boy will be a whole new adventure.
A bitter sweet u/s yesterday. And a bitter sweet day today. I think Clarence was up there working his magic today to help his Mommy through the day. He's made sure his little brother in my womb has been making his presence known to Mommy all day with little kicks and thumps! What a glorious feeling.

What wonderful news! I know Clarence is smiling and watching over his baby brother.

So happy for your good scan.

I am struck by so many similarities in our dates of our stories. I found out at a routine check-up at 17 weeks that my son had died, probably only a day or so before. He was delivered on Nov. 18th... only 10 days before your sweet Clarence William. We must have been due so close to the same time. Evan, too, had a strong heartbeat at his 13 week u/s... but not much movement. No one even mentioned it at that point.
We are expecting again and I am 21 weeks today... so again, we must be on exactly the same due date path. And both having another boy. (This is my 4th including Evan).
I wish you much peace on this journey and hope that all will continue to go well!!!
