Anatomy Scan Today

Well today was the big day, the day I found out the gender of my baby.

First I'll go over a few things.

We saw all four chambers of the heart.  All looks good.

This baby has huge feet and large hands.  Got to be J's side of the family as my hands are still the same size they were in Kindergarten.  J's twin nieces also have large feet wearing size 10's.

The fibroid on my uterus is no longer 1 mm but now 1CM.

The fluid filled cyst/pocket located behind my left ovary is still there and unchanged.

We are now down to just one gender of names to choose from.

Oh the baby's heart beat was 143 today.

Baby Hiccup was also anterior breech which made getting photos rather interesting.  At one point the first tech had me roll to my left side and brought in the second tech to finish the ultrasound as the first one had a meeting to go to.

The tech did find a Sub Chorionic Hematoma (SCH) on the placenta so they called in the doctor to explain to us what it means.  I told the doctor that I knew it was a bruise and the risks and he was concerned about our drive out to the East coast.  I promised that at the first sign of bleeding we would stop and go to the ER.

Now for the photos:



Left foot with the right one slightly over lapping the left in the ultrasound.
Detest the first photo as it looks like a death mask.  Second photo here is a nice profile shot that I do like.
First and hopefully only centerfold shot of my baby girl.  She had better not even think about posing for one of those magazines!

Second photo is again a nice profile shot.

After the ultrasound we went home, got some breakfast then headed out to do a few things we needed to in town.  We couldn't do them all as J forgot to bring with him a set of his orders.  The post office box rental will have to wait until Monday.  No big deal.

Went to babies r us and updated the registry.  J played with a few more strollers and decided he loves the Bob Jogging stroller.  I think it is the Expedition SE but I could be wrong though it is an SE model.

I did break down and buy the cutest 6 month size dress I could find.  This way she has a dress to wear to church and for the first formal family photos together.

    1. She looks like her daddy's baby photo already which is rather odd, but I'm okay with that.
