I'm back from my screening!
 
Well, I have good and bad news.

Good news - The baby is measuring right on date! Right on! September 30th and moving all around. She said if I can't feel the movements now I should in a week and a half.

Bad news - She couldn't get 1 measurement they really need so I have to go back on the 24th and seen if the baby cooperates. Every time she would try to get it when the baby would jump and box, it would stop. She tried for an hour for this measurement. I laid on my sides and everything but it just wouldn't cooperate (just like Owen)

He is measuring 5 cm long and has very long arms and legs. Oh and did I say he! That's right she said I was still early to find out but her guess for what she seen it was a he! She said ask again next week and they will probably tell me for sure. I have a picture of the baby but I still have yet to get my usb out of the car I will do it sometime this afternoon.

that's good! didn't seem to bad. Now I know what to kind of look forward too! Did they do a transvaginal ultrasound?

no they just did abdominal one thank goodness.

Oh and if they get the measurements then they just finger prick you for your blood. If they don't get it next week I will be having a full blood thing.

The baby is big enough now to see and they zoom in on the baby so you will be covered!

I think that is great news. Even your bad isn't so bad!!!

I agree- the good completely outweighs the bad! Hopefully your boy (?!) won't cooperate and she'll have to try again next week- and then tell you the gender for sure! Haha....I am sure everything is going well with your active baby!

Re: I'm back from my screening!
 
Yeah, thats great news! I wonder if she's right with it being a boy! That'd be cool to know so early. Does that mean you get to see your baby again the 24th? If yes, thats not too bad of news. Seeing the baby is always fun! GL next week!

Aww, that’s awesome, good for you, you couldn’t wait to find out the gender so you got your wish at least 50%

I hope I get a peep too at 12 weeks.

Re: I'm back from my screening!
 
Yep, I get another peek next week. I've never had this done until this pregnancy so this is all new to me.

And then I get my first cervix screen on the 14th at 8am with a quick ultrasound.
