Here is our ultrasound from 2 weeks ago


Any gender guesses? still team green!


Dr. said everything looked good, except baby is breech and asked me if DD was breech at ultrasound. I said I didn't remember it ever coming up but that s/he still has time to maneuver.

Hb was 142 and I was laughing because baby kept moving away from the Doppler and my daughter was screaming and crying the whole time, somehow convinced the dr. was killing me! Poor baby girl!

Only gained 2lbs in the past month, which he was still happy about but was upset because my urine showed I'm still dehydrated. Not drinking enough water still...oops. He gave me the script to get my glucose screening done, ugh. Not happy about that! Fasting makes me vomit (and so does that nasty drink).

But here is an interesting tid bit! At my 16 week appt I measured 15. I wasn't concerned because I was close and figured I was probably just progressing/growing at my own rate (and so was baby). Well, today, 4 weeks later I measured 22! Wow! What a difference!

Now begins the long 4 week wait until the next appointment...ugh! Only 2 more monthly visits before I move to every other week, though!

Congrats on your healthy baby! I'm gonna guess girl just by the skull theory. And the glucose test is the worst, mine is next appt and I'm dreading it. Good luck with yours!

What is the skull theory? We compared this u/s to DD and they look almost identical!

Boys supposedly have a flat forehead and girls have a rounder one. But it's just a theory so not exactly accurate but still fun to guess.

Sounds like it could be a lot more scientifically based than the heartbeat and low/high carrying wives tales Female babies are typically more physically mature than male babies at birth. If that can be a difference, why not foreheads too?

Yay for a healthy squirt

Hmmm. Here is my ultrasound from my daughter a few years ago.
