Back From BIG u/s and...

IT'S A GIRL!!!!

Her "girl" parts..heehee

Her foot

Spine-so neat!

Wow, I cant say enough how excited we are!! The u/s itself was cool, our little princess was once again in an odd position and had her hand covering her face most of the time. We got a good money shot though, so no surprises here!! She was measuring a little ahead at 18 weeks 6 days, and her heart rate was steady at 154!

On the flip side, after going over all the measurements and pictures we met with the Dr. One of the baby's kidneys was a little fuller than normal with fluid, we are talking a very small amount more of 1mm more fluid than the other. It could just be a fluke, or that the babies kidney's are still developing, but it also could be a blockage of some sort. It also very slightly increased our odds for downs syndrome, but he was really not concerned about this because there are no other markers and all the measurements from my NT scan came back great.

Like I said, he was really not overly concerned about this at all and neither are we. I will see my regular OB in 3 more weeks and she what she says about it, but either way we will just take a look at it again at our next u/s to check on it!

I actually had a similar situation when I was pg with Kay. At my big u/s they discovered a small clot on my placenta. They wanted to keep an eye on it because if it had grown it could have cut off all blood and oxygen to her. So after weeks and weeks of worrying that she was suffocating in there, at the next u/s it was gone!! So I am going to try not and worry about this, as it could be nothing. Oh and I promised myself that I will NOT google it : )

No, I didnt have it there. I went back to the other place where I had my NT scan, only because they have slightly better equipment (because they are high risk) and I get a DVD of the whole thing and every picture!

Congratulations Lisa!! Great pics - we had a mix of 3D and regular that I posted today too. Your little girl is a cutie already. The spine is awesome! Hoping the kidney issue is nothing at all :)
