20 weeks

Ooofta, its been a crazy one. Well we where supposed to have our ultrasound in St Cloud last Monday but the clinic closed due to the blizzard we got. So now its tomorrow. I'm still dealing with issues with my heart. I had to stop the beta blockers due to the reactions I was getting.
 (very abnormal for those kind of meds as I posted earlier).
The Dr isn't sure what meds she wants to put me on due to them having possible effects on the baby.She is concerned with how my heart is completely off with it's rhythm and sound. ECHO is normal and EKG turned out fine so its something to do with the pregnancy. We just arnt sure what or WHY. She talked of wanting to send me to a specialist and see what they think. The halter monitor did pick up all the issues as well as her hearing them so shes thinking the 30 sec. or so EKG isn't long enough.
I guess I'm just sitting and waiting for more information on what to do. She doesn't want me working at all but I'm not on bed rest so that's a positive. Its not effecting the baby so that's another positive.The only thing that rests on my shoulders in thoughts is delivery. Now that we are to our half way mark its even more so on my mind. 20 weeks or less (hopefully not 2 weeks more haha) and this little guy will get to meet everyone in this world that loves him. I'm just lucky enough to get to know him a little before hand. 

I know one things for sure. Unless this boy changes up his sleep schedule Sam better get used to working nights and a go go goer lol. He is one active little guy. And I enjoy it, I don't have to sit and wonder if hes okay. I can feel him almost constantly now. Before we had to push a little to feel him and now I don't have to at all. 

Here's a picture of me at 19weeks 4 days.
I can really tell in this picture my weight loss but baby is doing good so no worries there.
I cant wait to see Sam and her mom on Monday =P
