21 week appointment and fetal survey

Mon, 08-15-2011 - 9:56pm

So I had my 21 week check-up today as well as the fetal survey. The ultrasound was very boring... she was camera shy and kept turning away from the ultrasound wand. It looked like we woke her up, even though I drank a Coke right before I went in. Still Team Pink - that she did show us; but no cute profile shots or anything. The US tech even turned on the 4D for us so we had something cute to take home. But they got a good look at all of the organs and everything looked perfect. HR 142 (which confirmed that she had just woken up. The kids are calling her Pork Chop now - DH came up with that special nickname :) They got to come to the US because they were out of school today so that was exciting. I'm so read for the next milestone - viability in 3 weeks!

Everything sounds like it's going so well...yay for Pork Chop! (My BIL calls his daughter Tugboat. lol) It's always reassuring seeing the sexes, I think we have ours confirmed at every u/s...I generally hold my breath just in case. ;-)
