Anatomy Scan

Our anatomy ultrasound went perfectly today and like any really annoying new mommy, I'm going to show a ton of the pictures they took today and act like you really wanted to see them all!!! And if I can figure out how to download the DVD, I'll be torturing you with it later this week... It's even cuter than the pictures...That's a leg propped up in the right corner there.
This is the baby in a thoughtful pose. I'm sure he/she is sure to be a genius!

It's a..........

BABY!!!! (Did you really think I was going to ruin such a fun surprise?)
Little worried about the size of those feet in such close proximity with my fragile little ribs...

Being shy... We weren't camera ready for this shot! This leads me to think it's a girl. :)

Baby is measuring 9 ounces which is great for this point and all measurements were good. The brain measured the smallest which makes me think it has to be a boy. :)
The tech was easily able to tell what the gender is but she kept it to herself. It was the first time I've been tempted to know because all it would have taken is one word out of her mouth and I'd have known if I was having a daughter or son. But now that I'm home, I'm SO glad we didn't find out.
They'll scan me again at 30 weeks to check for size (I'm a lot concerned that this baby will end up humongous.) I can't believe I have to wait 12 weeks for another scan!!! What will I do with myself???
Oh, and I mentioned that I'm freaked out about cervical incompetence so she did a vaginal u/s (I actually volunteered for this) and my cervix is 4.8 cm and tightly closed. That made me feel a lot better!!! And it had been way too long since I'd had to take my pants off at the doc's office, so I felt it was overdue.


  1. WOW WOW WOW!!! What awesome pictures!!! He/she is gorgeous!!! 12 weeks is long time before you get see him/her again, but you'll make it - you can do anything!

    I'm crazy paranoid about cervical incompetence too!!! So they can scan while they're down there, huh? I need that. Why are we so convinced that the worst things will happen to us? Cause we're IF girls and our heads are f-ed up...

    Get that video up - I want to see the baby play!

  2. My God, it actually looks like a real baby, not a peanut or a blob! That's amazing technology. Glad everything is moving along so well.

  3. Beautiful!!! Absolutely beautiful! I am so happy for you and your precious bundle of joy.

  4. I'm sooooo happy things went well today...He/She is so adorable already...Still think its a girl... Hope things are going well, I'm going to try and stop by the clinic on friday afternoon...

  5. This is why I am going to school to do u/s...I love babies and yours is one of the cutest I've seen!! I still can't believe you are this far along! :)

  6. AHHHHH!!! This pics are so awesome! :):) And good for you for staying strong and holding out on knowing the gender! The little guy (I think guy) or girl is so stinkin cute! Please tell me you are framing some of these..haha because someday when I frame mine...I won't feel like a dumbass...:)

  7. Awww..your little baby is sooo cute! You got some really great shots! It's funny that you are worried about the cervical incompetence b/c that's been my one concern in the 2nd tri, especially with the 3 IUIs and D&C I had. I'm glad to hear all is looking perfect!

  8. What great pics! I love the shot of his/her feet. Oh. My. Goodness. You're gonna be a MOMMY!!!

  9. Those are great ultrasound pictures. I always liked getting the vaginal ultrasounds simply for the good close more clear pictures of the baby. It was worth it to me.
    I don't know how your having so much self control and not finding out the sex. Good for you. I wonder what it is??

    I'm glad everything looked good.

  10. Those images are incredible!! I am so jealous that you got 3D ones! I'm glad everything looked so good and that your cervix is good, too.

  11. AMAZING photos!!!! She/he is SOOOO cute!!!

  12. SO AMAZING to be able to see that little body, huh? Congrats!

  13. Great pics! I love the belly pics, too! :) I can't believe it's the halfway mark already!
