I know this seems strange at over 20 weeks pregnant, but I just got back from my 20 week anatomy scan and Baby Girl looks perfect! At the 18 week scan they were really checking for Spina Bifida, and while everything else looked good, they couldn't see the heart and as they told me today, needed to recheck the spine/brain to reconfirm all is good. So glad i didn't know that they weren't positive about the spine last time as i would have been worried all this time.

I've had more consistent movement over the last couple of days and with the all clear from the ultrasound, I'm finanlly really feeling confident that this baby will be coming home with us in January. It's such a great feeling!

Thank you all for your support - I could not have made it through the last 20 weeks without you all.

Aw, so glad your scan went well! I understand where you are coming from, at almost 17 weeks I'm still not 100% confident I will actually have a baby in Feb. I am so glad you can finally feel that, I hope can too soon!

Yay for new found confidence!!! Passing my loss point helped a lot... I want to get past the point where my little sister was stillborn, and then I think I'll be more clear about it... but that's just me and my hangups.


Thanks to tasha_mae for my BEAUTIFUL siggie!

Yay! I am glad you feel more confident! I am 32 weeks and most days I think that I will bring home a baby, and others, I am terrified that I won't.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!
