2nd Trimester Screening

Went very well! Our baby girl is still definitely a girl, so I think we're going to go ahead and register next weekend. I'm too excited for this, as I never got to go around with the scanner gun thingy when we registered for our wedding, so this is my moment! :-P

Enough talk, here are some pics from the ultrasound:

Everything looked great according to the u/s technician and the dr. She was moving around like crazy, so she made it a bit difficult for the tech to get the measurements. Could be the chocolate chip cookie mama ate right before. :-o She had her little fists balled up the whole time, which is totally what I tend to do with my fists all the time. And they said her ears are a "good size" which I interpret to mean she's got Adam's ears! Haha I guess girls can hide their bigger ears with long hair. :-P We got the whole hour long u/s on dvd again, which was great. I'll probably watch it again tonight... I just can't get enough of her!

They want to see me again for a follow-up ultrasound in 6 weeks because the ultrasonic blood flow measurements were a tiny bit high. They said they should go down by 22 weeks, so there's still some time, but they do want to monitor it, since it can be an indicator of pre-eclampsia. Fingers crossed that everything with that is OK!
