This past Thursday, we had our big ultrasound for the baby. The tech spent an hour taking pictures and measurements, and answering our questions (as best she could). We had too look away a few times while she looked between the baby’s legs…didn’t want to take a chance that we might see anything.
Here is a view of the baby’s arm and hand (the hand is in the right ride of the picture).
And here are the feet (a view of the bottom of the feet).
And finally, our favorite shot of Baby LG3, the profile:
Unfortunately, the tech couldn’t get a good enough view of the heart to take measurements so we have to go back for another ultrasound next week.
And then at the end, she had to double check the location of the placenta which appeared too close to the cervix (placenta previa). She kept saying she ‘wasn’t a doctor’ so she couldn’t tell us much.
I was bummed when we left – since we really didn’t know too much. Joe read a bunch online and said that the higher statistics were that placenta previa wouldn’t be an issue by the end of the pregnancy. I emailed my doctor when I got to the office and he got back to me within an hour. He had already read the report and said he wasn’t too concerned and it was likely to be totally fine by the end. AND – he was happy to see that all was well with the baby. It was SO awesome to hear that news (and not have to wait until next week when we will see him in person).
Here is a view of the baby from the outside – Mama at 19 weeks.
As they always say, Time is flying by…mostly. It’s hard to believe I am almost half way, but at the same time – I wonder how I will make it through the next 4+ months! Eek!
