I am leaving in an hour for my follow-up u/s with the OB/u/s Specialist. We are checking on the cyst they found on the baby's brain in our last scan. I really think everything will be OK, but just knowing that there is a chance that they will say our baby has Trisomy 18 freaks me out a little. I think the odds are 1/100, but I don't really trust statistics since what happened with Isaac and Avery only happens 1/35,000 (and even then most don't have it as bad as they did)

sooooo.....I will up-date as soon as I get back. These appts are usually pretty long though, and it takes us 1 1/2 hours to get to the hospital, so it will be late afternoon before I can up-date.


ohhhhhh, on another note - Travis felt the baby move last night!!!! YAY!! It's about time!! You should have seen his face, it was a little bit of shock, mixed with excitement. So cute!

UPDATE!!!

Well, after the u/s was done, we were told that our baby is perfectly healthy, and they saw no problems at all!!! YAY!!! they even told us that we can just continue with our reg OB Dr. for the rest of this pg!!

I am sooooo excited!!! I was in tears as we heard the good news! This was the first time with the specialist that they have EVER said - you have a healthy baby!! It was like this flood of relief came that is soo amazing! Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes!

So, the stats on this baby - the H/b was 143, and the weight is about 1lb 7 oz. They said he is in the 61st percentile (I'm not sure what that means, but she was smiling, so I don't care!!)

We got a really nice face shot of the baby, but no profile - baby decided to face mommy's back until right at the very end of the scan when we got to actually see the baby roll over! That was amazing to see!

Posted new u/s pics below! (If you can't tell I am super excited right now!!)

YAY! I'm so glad this baby is healthy! Those are great words to hear. As far as percentiles go, it means that baby is measuring bigger than 61% of babies at that gestational age, so good size!

YAY!

Dee - Yes, I am ready to exhale, and concentrate on getting ready for this little one to come. I bought material to make a crib quilt yesterday - I think we are going to have the room be in a snoopy theme. I loved snoopy when I was little.

Katt - We are not going to find out the sex, and my instincts are tricking me. When I dream, it's a girl, but when I think of the baby when I'm awake, I always think boy??? I guess we'll just get a good surprise come birth day.
