12 weeks

Friday was our NT scan.  I was so worried because we hadn't seen the little bean in about 2.5 weeks.  This time around, we got to do an abdominal u/s which was much more pleasant...;)  As soon as she put the wand to my stomach, this is what we saw.....


Can you believe it?  Poppy is huge!  Look at those little frog legs!  We are so in love!

Baby is still measuring a few days ahead which is great, but they are still keeping our due date at March 5th.  The heart beat was 167 BPM and the tech said that if she had to guess FOR FUN, she would say girl, based soley on the heart rate!  She says that the heart rate is on target for the sex about 90% of the time in her experience.  She thinks that she will have a better guess at our next appointment which is not for FOUR MORE WEEKS!  How am I ever going to make it?

Anywho....she measured the nuchal fold and says that it looks pretty thin, which is what we want.  The thicker the fold, the higher chance of a possible problem.  Now we have to wait for the blood work to come back which could be about 2 weeks. 

We are so excited about everything that is going on right now and are finally feeling like it is really happening.  In just 6 short months, we will have our little blessing in our arms.   :)
