My DH is always in there with a catcher's mitt, nudging out the midwives!

I can't believe the difference between 10 weeks and 12... I know they really start growing, but WOW. Now I'm really excited for my nuchal scan U/S next week Thurs at 12 weeks... will have more pics to share, AND I just found out that if we bring a tape, they will RECORD the whole thing for us! W00T! :

So maybe, if I can figure out YouTube, I'll post that, too!

AWESOME!

On the husband topic, mine isn't exactly comfortable, but he'll sit by my side for the exams, etc. He's still terrified of the birth, but holding it in. He doesn't like to see me in pain...better get over it . GL talking to your DH, momma2be_k...I'm sure he'll come around.

How do I post pics that are on my hard drive? I had an ultrasound done this morning with some 3D images done and I want to post them, but I can't figure it out!

You have to upload them to the internet with something like Picasa or flickr Then you can paste the link into one of your posts. Good Luck! Can't wait to see :

Ok, here are some of my pics from today's ultrasound. I am 12 weeks today!
Check out photo #60 and look towards where the baby's hip is- what are those two balls there ? Balls? Just kidding- but really anyone have any idea?

Wow! So many pics! And the baby look so cool. I don't know what the balls are...maybe some part of the placenta? Or the cord kind of doubled over? Weird!
post #54 of 146
Such beautiful pictures! Every time I see more u/s pictures I get more and more excited for mine on Monday (as if I wasn't super excited enough already!!) I decided that I'm going to tell everyone after my u/s!!!! Woohoo!! Oh and I'm 12 weeks now!!!!

Those two balls are funny - they obviously cannot be "balls" but they sure do resemble them... haha

How did it go? *sigh*

Pictures are easier... here's one, really blurry:

http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/e...S9_25_08_b.jpg

Here's another (DH asked when I did the deed with Skeletor... *snerk*)

http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/e...S9_25_08_a.jpg

And now that I just saw iluvmybabies' pics, I'm superextrajealous! lol

The u/s results themselves came out fine... from everything I could discern. They didn't check a lot of the soft markers I thought they should have, but the nuchal space wasn't measuring abnormal, so that's good, and we did see a nasal bone.

The tech was having a hard time getting baby to move into the position she wanted, so she didn't take hardly any time at the end to take good pics because she was too frustrated. (And although I wanted a video, and they told me on the phone they could do one, the tech told me, "Oh we will only tape once, so I'll do it now if you want, but this isn't a very long or interesting scan, you should probably wait for the 20 week one. GRRR. Okay, fine, then... figured I'd get pictures, that would suffice. *sigh*) Anyway, she got so frustrated with baby's uncooperativeness that she even called the doc in to re-check what she'd measured. Then, of course, the doc decides to blame it on my weight... but when I asked if a transvag would be better, she said, "no."

And then the doc says, "You need to have an u/s every 5-6 weeks from now on to measure the baby's size." Huh? WTH? Why?

"It's hard to palpate a baby on someone your size, and we need to know how big baby will be for delivery."

Oh freakin' PLEASE! I've had two home births and two midwives who could palpate my babies JUST fine, thankyouverymuch. (I didn't say that... )

I DID say, "Isn't late u/s notoriously inaccurate for judging a baby's actual size?"

"Well, something is better than nothing."

FEH!

She was also really, really, really hard to get info out of. She didn't like that I was educated about the scan, that I knew terms like "echogenic bowel" and wanted to know if baby had one. She was very avoidant, and just kept giving me the equivalent of "don't worry your pretty head about it" again and again. GRRRR. :

So I'll ask for copies of the test results from the doc in two weeks, when I see him, and I'm calling around to interview home birth midwives this week.

Guess I needed a kick in the butt to motivate me!

Sorry you had such a so so experience! At least you did get some great pictures!! And it will be better to video tape it at the big one! Are you going to find out what you are having??

What horrible people. It sounds like they were in bad moods and taking it out on you. I'm sorry . Will you refuse the extra u/s? I mean, large women give birth to children all the time and I've never heard of this extreme measure.

Hell yes, I'm refusing it! : It's completely unwarranted. I'm having one more at 20 weeks to check anatomy and that's it. I'm not against u/s, but I certainly think, unless it's really necessary, they should be kept to a minimum. Every 5-6 weeks just to check for size, when u/s is inaccurate for indicating actual size after 12 weeks? Fuggettaboddtit! Not only that, but it's literally a 50 minute drive to the hospital where they'd be doing them. Nuh-uh, not happening!

Good. Sometimes one begins to loose faith in the intelligence of the medical system.
