Friday's Ultrasound appointment

  • First of all, I was SUPER happy to find out they could do the u/s through my belly (I was beginning to get rather sick of the other way
    ) So that was the first good thing... Then, as SOON as she put the thingy on my belly we saw the baby moving around like CRAZY! We have a swimmer on our hands! And we saw the heartbeat and everything was measuring exactly as it should! I am WAY beyond happy!

    Then we went in the room for my regular 12 week appointment and she did the regular exam and talked to us about the maternal serum screening. We declined it (we do every time) because even if we do have another baby with a genetic something or other, we wouldn't do anything different. AND since there is such a high rate of false positives on those, I just figure we can go without it. Plus, if they find something on the next ultrasound we can always change our mind
    After that, we got to listen to the heartbeat and she said it's around the 150-160 range, nice and strong!

    My next appointment is "the ultrasound" appointent (even though I've aready had 3
    ) and then a regular appointment afterwards. This one is in 5 weeks and I already can't wait! My Dr's office finally got the 3D/4D technology, so we get to briefly have one of those and we get a picture from it too! AND I FINALLY talked DH into letting me find out the gender (but I'm again sworn to secrecy!)

  • That's so great! Sounds like you have a good healthy baby. I remember my midwife saying that under 165 is usually a boy and she was right in our case. Are you sworn to secrecy on here too or just with him?
