22w4 day, anatomy scan update!!!
Sat, 11-12-2011 - 12:03am

I had my anatomy/structural scan today- baby boy looks great and is very definitely a boy, so I can keep buying blue and green, lol!!! All measurements are fantastic, in fact, he's measuring a few days ahead. Heart, stomach, bones, spine, brain, facial features, all fantastic. Doctor said he is "totally normal." Also, my placenta has started shifting away from my cervix, and the doctor said it shouldn't be a problem for us.

Bad news - my protein in my urine is up to +2. It's been +1 since about 15 weeks.

Overall, it sounds like a really nice appointment. Glad you can keep buying blue and green, lol. My little boy is measuring ahead as well. I think boys tend to be a little bigger. Please KUP on what your doc says about the protein in your urine.

I'm so glad all looks great with your LO. I'm sorry about the protein and bp, but seems like they are keeping an eye on it. If you get worried, go in for an appt sooner. I feel like I've been a pain to my doc, but you have to do what is best for you. Sending BP lowering and protein lowering vibes your way.

Congrats on your healthy boy! Thats wonderful that your placenta has started to move. As for the protein I have everything crossed that it goes down and your BP remains good. KUP
