Anatomy Scan w/Pictures

Our anatomy scan last week Tuesday was AMAZING! I was so nervous walking into the appt, just praying that our lil one was developing on track and healthy. We are thrilled that the appointment went very well and that HE is looking wonderful. Yes, you read that correctly - we're having a baby BOY! :)

The ultrasound tech was very informative. She started with his head/brain and worked her way down measuring all the body parts and organs. I really appreciated how after looking at each organ she would assure us that it looked normal and healthy. At the time, he weighed 13 ounces and she said he was on track be a full pound by 22 weeks!

The doctor met with us right after the ultrasound and assured us baby boy was doing very well. Baby boy is in the 66th percentile - which she said was perfect, means he's growing right on track - not too slow and not too fast - just right. She also said she didn't foresee me being at any risk for premature labor, which yes sounds reassuring, but yet I still find myself worrying non stop! I asked her when will I have my next ultrasound, already anticipating seeing baby boy again. She said "You won't have another one." What?!?!?! Ahhhhh, just check-ups from here on out! She said they only do more ultrasounds if they have concerns or if there are complications. So, I guess this is a good thing! Next appointment is April 17th!

And here are just a few of the 32 pics our ultrasound tech took for us...:)




I think this one is so cute with his little foot all the way up by his face - flexible lil guy.
