I had my almost 20 week u/s today.

Congratulations! Of course, I'm sure you'd be happy either way. It's also great that everything looks good. My results were similar, except I've felt the baby was a boy ever since my NT scan. I had this US a little early, at 18 wks 4 days, and I was worried they still may not be able to make a strong gender prediction, especially at first when the baby was lying on his belly with his legs tucked together underneath him. But then he opened wide and gave us a good shot (I'm a little disappointed they didn't print that one out for me, though).
Anyway, glad everything's progressing well with you too.
Congrats!!! Seems like a lot of folks around here are carrying baby boys! I guess Michelle is having a girl!
We have our big u/s this Monday (29th) and I can't wait to find out. My peri scheduled it later so that he could get a good luck at the soft-tissue markers since we had the blood work come back elevated risk for DS.
It is such a relief to hit that 20-week mark! I'll be 21-weeks tomorrow...seems like time is really flying now!
Hi Susan,Sounds like you are doing well. NST is non-stress testing. Basically they hook the baby up to a monitor and I have to sit in a recliner and push a button every time I feel the baby move. The baby's heartrate should go up when it moves. For me the NST is actually a nice relaxing time away from my other 6, lol!
I am just feeling this baby move more this week. Apparently I have an anterior placenta or as the tech said, it's like having a pillow against the wall of your uterus--between you and the baby. So it is harder to feel the baby moving.
