So we had our 20 week check-up today.

The u/s report was in and she failed. They said the fluid around her is low (normal low to be exact), she was uncooperative and they didn't get a good look at her heart or kidneys and she was measuring 2 weeks small, which we already knew.

The dr said it could be nothing but they want to be cautious. And she isn't worried about the baby's kidneys since her bladder is good. But they also need to check the placenta for defects.

So I have to go in tomorrow for a level 2 u/s and I'm freaked out!!

Sorry it took me so long to get back here...apparently all hell broke lose with my little sister while I was at the u/s...but that's a completely other story...

The specialists felt that the fluid around the baby was right were it should be (whew). They said at this age it's pretty subjective and that if it was a hot day and I was dehydrated (I don't know how that would be possible with all the water I had to drink) that my body could have absorbed some of the fluid. All her parts and organs looked good...no markers for chromosomal problems. Her head, stomach etc did catch up and they are measuring where they should now. The only thing they saw to watch is that her limbs are about two weeks behind putting her below the 5th percentile. But they think it's most likely just her taking after me (I'm really short) and that she will just be small. They wanted me to get the quad screening done to rule out down's syndrome. I had previously declined it because you can't change it and the high rate of false positives. Today was the last day I could get it done so I did. And they would like to repeat the level 2 in 3-4 weeks to make sure her bones are growing. I'm not really worried considering that after my son was born he's always been very low in the percentiles and he very well could have had short bones in the womb to but they never had it checked before.

It was great seeing her again...she was yawning at the beginning and it was super cute!! She also was playing with her umbilical cord. They couldn't believe how active she was.
