I go in for my anatomy scan at 130.

I have been so sick this time around just feeling bad most of the time. I have not been drinking enough water eating enough or taking my prenatals every day. I was severely constipated the whole first half of my pregnancy and I can't help but think that couldn't have been good for her.

And now that we're this far I just keep thinking what if something is wrong with her? It would be my fault! What if my inadequate care for my body has caused irreparable damage to my sweet girl??

Please just send your prayers and positive thoughts my way. I woo update after appointment.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @@@@@@@@@

The scan went so well. I have the sweetest U/S tech. She is such a sweet mother type and she just fawns over her patients.

I have now had 3 separate confirmations that Skylar is indeed a girl. (perfect obvious little hamburger

I got some amazing looking profile shots and she even threw in a dvd for free since Andrew couldn't be there with me

All of her organs looked great, measuring right on with my edd and the fluid levels are great. My placenta is anterior *towards the back* which is ideal since babies tend to face their placenta.

It couldn't have gone better

Here is her gorgeous little profile





i am in love

Good luck today! I know what you mean about feeling guilty. I was so sick for the first trimester of this pregnancy and didn't eat for days on end. I felt so guilty that I wasn't providing her with any nutrients, but I just couldn't eat or drink. I would constantly say that I was hurting my baby when the nurses came to change my IV, but they would always reassure me how resiliant these little babies are and will be a little parasite feeding off what reserves the mommy has. That gave me some comfort and hopefully it will give you some solace too

Guilt and hormones are such fun combination! I would say our LOs are ok because our bodies look after them first. They get the best of everything. Try not to worry too much and update us this afternoon with some adorable pictures!

I was really sick with dd2 and had the same fears, but all my drs reassured me that they are parasites lol, and will just feed off mom's reserves

Good luck!!!

Yay! So glad it went well! I can totally relate to your fears -- I was sick up until a couple of weeks ago and I know I haven't been drinking enough water and have not always been faithful about taking my prenatals everyday. They just made me so nauseous! My scan is April 5th and I have to say I'm nervous to make sure everything is ok with this LO. I am so glad to hear your appointment went good though! Congrats!
