AND I'M SO NERVOUS. Why am I feeling so jittery ahhhhh!? None of my girlfriends are picking up their phones so I had to share somewhere!!! Anyway, will post results soon.
20 week scan is today!
I had mine today too! It was kind of disappointing because baby would NOT turn to show her face or give us all the measurements, so i have to go back in a week or two--which means having to find someone else to care for my toddler since DH had the day off today but that's not common.
Also, she would NOT uncross her legs, so they couldn't see gender. I was super grateful I went to the gender ultrasound at 17 weeks, because if not I would have been pretty sad. However, I do hope they can confirm gender next time...it would just be nice to hear again that she HASN'T grown a penis or anything. :)
Loveandgarbage, can't wait to hear how yours goes. Hopefully babe co-operates! I get a lot of excitement/nervousness before these things too. :)
So my jitters went totally haywire because I had to wait almost an hour once I got there-- but then finally got into the ultrasound room and found out we're having another BOY!!!! Gotta say I wasn't surprised at all and I'm happy to know!
The baby looks really healthy however there was a slight issue with his kidneys. The fluid in the kidneys is slightly more than they like to see-- but it measured only a millimeter over the normal range, and the doctor I met with afterward told me that it's the most common slight abnormality they see and that most of the time, it corrects itself. So I'm having another ultrasound in 6 weeks to make sure everything is okay. I guess this abnormality is a "soft marker" for downs syndrome, but the baby's chances of that are still less than 1%. The heart was completely healthy and the back of the neck looked normal, so the genetic counselor who talked with me right after the US (I was very impressed that she was available to me right away!) said that it's statistically pretty low that they baby has a chromosomal abnormality. SO... all in all, good news, but just one issue that we're going to check on again. I'm not feeling too worried.
You ladies who are about to have yours... good luck! It was so awesome to see the little guy in there and we got some good pics. He looks a lot like my younger son at least in utero!!
