Level 2 Ultrasound
11
Wed, 09-12-2012 - 3:06pm
So, I had another ultrasound on Monday to monitor the fibroid growth, as well as peek at the baby - just for fun. She measured one of the ventricles in the brain at 11 mm, when the cutoff for normal is 10 mm. Now we have a level 2 ultrasound next Thursday to make sure the ventricle isn't getting larger. I'm not completely freaking out, but I'm nervous. It's just unnerving to hear that something could be wrong...anyone have experience with this?

I don't have any experience but I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers-Try really hard not to worry too much...So many times these tests/scans cause unnecessary concern as there is really nothing wrong. Keep us updated!

Thanks, I'm hoping they are just being overly concerned.

Oh goodness, that would make me nervous too. I don't have any experience with this either, but I am praying and thinking good thoughts for you. Keep us updated! <3

Everything went well! Ventricle that was measuring too large is in normal range, as well as the others. The relief is overwhelming :-) Baby weighs 3 lbs 2 oz, is very low and had his/her face squashed against the wall of my uterus so we couldn't get any good pics. Heart, spine, organs and limbs all look great. I can't tell you how excited I was to see the measurements on the screen under 10 mm. Dr. Google gave me lots of information to look for ;-)

Oh I am so happy for you! that is an amazing relief. I know whenever they have to take a second look at anything it's scary, but i'm so glad you have a doc who's taking every precaution and making sure that everything is okay. and Yay for another look at baby!
