Pregnancy Updates – 20 weeks

Below are pictures of our first sonic gram back in January, just 8 weeks into the pregnancy.  The picture of Jeff is a more recent one.  We bought a baby heart doppler online so that we could listen to the baby’s heartbeat any day we wanted to.  It is so fun to listen to the heartbeat live and then pray for the baby right there and then.  It has been amazing to follow the progress of the baby in the womb and to realize day by day how much of a miracle pregnancy is and how smart God is to be able to do this.  How amazing that God allows us to partner with Him to the point of creating an eternal being (little baby) together with Him.


We go back to doctor for our 20 week check up and sonic gram to find out if it’s a boy or girl next Friday!  Yes, you can recommend names if you would like to or tell us what gender you think it is:)  Our parents are going to be in town for the doctor visit so we get to share the surprise with them, which is so cool.  Bethany has just starting showing the last couple weeks and feeling the baby moving lots as well.

  1. I am so excited…. I think boy Isaac Jeffrey Mootz But whatever it is it is a blessing and healthy is all we really care about. So glad your Mom and Dad are going to be there. I know they are too. Half way there. Feeling the baby move is my favorite part of being pregnant and probably what I miss most. Thanks for sharing guys. Love you both so much. If you are home for Hannah’s graduations and party, please be sure to come.

    Creating an eternal being. Wow, what a statement. Sure sheds a different light on all creation doesn’t
