A/S results

Great news!  The anatomy scan went well and DH and I are finally breathing a sigh of relief.
Everything the tech could see looks great.  Baby C was being pretty stubborn though and moving ALL over the place, so the tech couldn't get all of the heart measurements she needed.  We will be going back in a month to try the heart measurements again, but the tech said from what she saw she does not think there are any problems.  Everything else was measuring normally.  We are SO relieved!
Baby C weighs about 10 ounces, is head down (I told it to stay that way!), and his/her little feet are exactly where I've been feeling all of its little kicks!  It was nice to get validation that I wasn't hallucinating about feeling the movements.  Also, he or she is measuring FIVE days ahead from all of our other scans... so we may have a little porker on our hands!  haha  
Because s/he was moving so much, it was hard for the tech to get good photos.  But here is one of the better ones.  :-) 

 Thank you all for the good thoughts today!


  1. Now you can breathe a sigh of relief! Glad to hear it!!

  2. That is some great news!! I'm so happy baby is doing great and is measuring FIVE whole days ahead!! I just have to ask....sooo did you all change your mind and find out the gender?!?!? I just had to ask...sorry!!

  3. Haha, its ok Mary! No, we stayed strong and did not find out the gender. :-) The tech warned us when she was going to be near "that" region if we wanted to look away, but honestly, Baby C was moving and flipping so much, there was no way DH and I would have been able to tell anyway. So it is still a surprise!

  4. Excellent! a large baby makes every mom happy and proud. Congratulations!

  5. Congrats! Sounds like a great appointment--I've got mine in two weeks!
