follow-up ultrasound done...

when i had my anatomy ultrasound last month, baby (boy) looked perfect.  the only sticking point was the tech was not able to see the baby's stomach.  they wanted me to come in for a follow-up ultrasound so they could see the stomach.

just got done with that appointment.  she no sooner put the wand to my belly before even i was able to see that the stomach looked nice and full.  baby continues to measure to the day and everything looks great!  his arms and hands were up and crossed in front of his face, so we didn't get any great new pictures today.  but i'm satisfied to know that baby's guts are all there and he's healthy.  extra nice to know since mama was diagnosed a year ago with a GI issue! :smileyhappy:

according to their records, i've gained about 10 pounds, and doc was completely satisfied with that.  she also confirmed her certainty of the gender, which is great to know before the gender reveal party scheduled for tomorrow evening!

it was really fun. we had about 60 total (40 adults, 20 kids) at our new place for the housewarming/gender reveal. we feel so blessed to have so many people there to show their love and support (and to eat our food and drink our booze!) :smileyhappy:
the word is out and it's FB official, it's a boy!

Congrats on a great ultrasound!!! I know what you mean about knowing its your last peek at LO. I am getting a 3D ultrasound because I've always wanted to have one but we will be done seeing our little man after that (unless of course there is a medical reason!) glad your little guy is doing well

this was our 5th ultrasound. so sad to know that was probably my last peek at my LO before he joins us. they said i'm not likely to have another u/s unless they have a question about measurements or i have gestational diabetes, etc.
