It was a stressful experience but the baby is ok and growing well. We're definitely having a girl!
The tecnician was way too quiet for my liking - which immediately made me nervous. I finally simply had to say - "Is everything ok?!" Turns out the technician was just quiet. She did give us some great 3-D pictures, so I was grateful for that.
She aske me to empty my bladder mid-way through, and since the baby was somehow blocking some shots of my cervix, they had to do the vaginal ultrasouns as well. A doctor came in and said the cervix looked good, and that my Braxton Hicks are normal for this time of pregnancy.
The baby's heartbeat is 144 bpm. When she moved on screen, I could feel her moving, and that was pretty amazing.
I have a follow up appointment with my OBGYN next Wednesday. Whew - that's it for now!
