20 Week Anatomy Scan

Please forgive me for the delay, as this appointment was over a week ago, last Wednesday!  As I've mentioned before, life has been very busy.  I thought that once we finished coaching softball, things would calm down some.  Nope!  But that is okay, because we have two very good reasons for needing to get things done :)

The appointment went very well.  Both babies look fantastic and seem to be very healthy.  They took about an hour per baby, so it was a very long appointment, two and a half hours!

I know many of you are still waiting to find out the genders.  Wait no more!

First, Baby A.  This child seems to be our difficult one.  Baby A would not let us get a good profile picture, no matter how hard two different technicians tried.  However, Baby A did let us see the gender!

We have a GIRL!  (sorry baby A for sharing a picture of your privates)


Best profile we could get
Now for Baby B, who was very photogenic.



It's a BOY!  (I promise I won't share pictures of your "junk" later in life)
 
Apparently he's a little squished
Both are measuring on target with Baby A weighing approximately 10 ounces and Baby B 12 ounces.  So tiny!

At my 16 week u/s, there was a slight concern about Baby A's placenta sitting on the cervix.  The hope was that as the uterus expands with the babies growth, the placenta will lift away from the cervix.  At this appointment, that hope seems to be happening.  The placenta is no longer sitting on the cervix.  It's not where it should be, but the MFM doctor said that because it is moving, it should continue to move and not be a problem at all.

All good news!  We have a boy and a girl (although we would have been ecstatic with any combination), both are measuring well and have great heartbeats, they have all there limbs and organs, my cervix is nice and long, and no more placenta issues.  Yay!

We had a very relaxed reveal party on Saturday to announce the genders, which I will write about next time.  But for right now, I must hurry as Hubby will be home very soon and we will be leaving to go do our first baby registry!  So excited!

    1. Newberg is only about 45 minutes from us, and I'm sure you will probably be driving through Salem? When are you coming? We need to get together!

  23. YAY!!! So exciting about the genders. And even more thrilling that everything looks good and healthy and low-risk. How did you do the gender reveal? Cake? Balloons? Is that how you found out as well or did you find out at the actual scan? So excited for you.
