20 Week U/S

I had my 20 week appointment today and somehow managed to get an appointment for my U/S today as well!  I figured that I would have to wait at least a week, but by some miracle they were able to get me in at the radiology clinc that is separate from the hospitals.  Everything looked good and the baby was sleeping for most of it, so they got all of the measurements they needed. The baby is measuring right where it should be.  Now to the best part....I am officially team Pink!!!  I'm so excited and the tech said she had a clear shot where there were clearly no boy parts as she put it.  DH had said he wanted all boys, but didn't seem upset since the baby looked healthy.  He said our little girl is never dating though! I'm so glad to finally have had an U/S since this is the first I've gotten to see our baby.  I have to admit I could have sat there all day and watched her!  It's amazing when can see everything so clear! I wish I had an excuse to get another U/S before the end, but I'm just so glad that everything is looking good from what they could tell. I posted a few pics from today at 20 weeks and there is a shot where you can see a profile view from the U/S.

I know it's easier said than done, but try not to panic.  They saw the same thing during the anatomy scan when I was pg with my son.  They sent me to a perinatal cardiologist for another scan & just knowing that I was being sent to a specialist freaked me out!  Turns out it was nothing & the specialist wasn't even sure why they saw the need to alarm me to begin with.  Hopefully it'll be the same with you & your little one.  :smileyhappy:

Praying that it's just a shadow Dina! I think that's a good idea to try and not over think it. That's what I'm trying to do but it sure is hard! ((HUGS))

Well....I just found out that we'll be having another U/S in 2 months... The radiologist saw a shadow over my little girl's heart. They're pretty sure it's nothing, but they want to confirm with another U/S. DH and I are trying to stay calm and hope that it really is just a shadow and nothing more. Everything else was fine and they didn't have anything else that was unusual. I'm glad to get another U/S, but this is really not the way I wanted to get it! For now we're just trying to push it to the back of our minds and not worry.

Kristy- I am feeling some movement, today she's been kicking up a storm! Are you feeling anything yet?

Congratulations!!!  It is so exciting to find out what everyone is having - especially when you think back to our first days on the board when we were all (well, I was anyway) complaining of morning sickness.  Look how far we've come!  Have you felt your little girl move much??

My U/S is next monday...can't wait!

Congratulations!!!  That is so exciting.  We'll have to put together an official team green/pink/blue list.  I am also happy for you to have proved your sister wrong ;-) 

It is very neat to see the baby on the ultrasound.  We aren't going to find out what we are having but I am still super excited for my big ultrasound on Thursday.
