18 Week Dr. Ultrasound

Today we went to the OB to have our 18 week ultrasound to make sure Ms. Annabelle is doing well.  I am happy to report she is doing just fine and growing on schedule.  During the ultrasound they measured her head, bones in her arms and legs, the vessels in her heart, and the space in between the bones in her head.  They also looked at the umbilical cord and her kidneys and all looks good!

She was moving around in there but as always she was sucking on her hands.  When we  started the ultrasound she was laying head down by my cervix but she ended up moving so she was laying on her side.  She never wants to turn around though so she remained face down.  We saw her little hand wave across the screen and we saw her tiny foot press up, so cool.

She is still a she and I think it is safe to say that after 3 checks it would be nothing short of a miracle if she came out as a he.  I think the ultrasound tech was disappointed that we already had found out what it was during a 3D ultrasound, them's the breaks lady.

I would post pictures but it's getting late and I don't have them scanned in.  Jerry and I have a 6am flight out in the morning to head north to see my family in New England.   I will post some of the pictures we got when we get back.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and week!
