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|
|It's a BOY! (I promise I won't share pictures of your "junk" later in life)|
|Apparently he's a little squished|
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!
