I was also nervous because I really just wanted to find out that everything is ok in there and to get a clean bill of health for our little 2.0. I've only been feeling sporadic little thumps and I don't have a home doppler so my appointments are the only time that I get confirmation that things are ok.
When we got in the u/s room I hopped up on the table and Kelsey, our tech, squirted the warm goo on my belly. As soon as the wand hit my belly he popped right up on the screen and yay! This time he actually looked like a baby!
She confirmed that yes, he most definitely IS a boy - not that the chromosomes would lie:
It turns out I do have an anterior placenta (again) so that's why I've been feeling minimal movement so far. I do feel him down low, but it's still pretty sporadic.
She started checking all of his measurements, including his little legs:
She even got his little feet:
Then she seemed to be spending a lot of time getting measurements on his heart. I got a little concerned because I don't remember her spending this amount of time on Andrew's heart, but as she took each picture she assured us that everything looked great and just how it should. Everything was closed where it should be and was perfect.
She got a couple pictures of his profile:
And him putting his little arm up by his head:
It was like he was saying "Oh, this is such a rough life."
She also looked at his spine and that looked perfect as well:
He has that big old belly and a tiny little butt. Kind of like his big brother :)
With all of his measurements he was coming in at an estimated weight of 15 oz and was measuring 5 days ahead. Yikes! Slow down little dude!
After we were done with the u/s I met with my doctor (J had to leave since we waited 30 mins). She looked over all of the pictures and confirmed that everything looked perfect. I scheduled my next appt for May 14th. That will be just another boring one and then the one after that will be the glucose test one and then we move to every 2 weeks. OMG. This pregnancy is flying by and it's freaking me out. At least now we know that our second little guy is healthy and that things are right on track. Such a relief...
