Yesterday we had our 20 week ultrasound. Mari, you were right. Drinking that much water and holding it wasn’t that bad. The ultrasound tech was nice and didn’t take a running start straight for my bladder like the one did for my first ultrasound. The exam took longer than I thought it would since my first one was only few minutes.
Here are some of the pictures. They aren’t great to begin with and as usual, most ultrasound pictures are difficult to determine what your looking at. Some of them I remember/know what I’m looking at. Others, not so much.
Here is a picture of….the two arms….maybe….
Here is a picture of….an arm….but the label says spine…..uh…..something.
OK! This one I know for sure. It’s my favorite (maybe because it’s the only one you can really tell what it is.
This is a picture of little baby Collier playing peek-a-boo! Baby has it’s two hands curled up covering the eyes. You can see the nose, upper lip (which looks like an old man sexy ‘stache) and the chin. Baby wasn’t cooperating enough for the tech to get a good facial profile, or even straight on. Seems we have a shy one coming our way. Or just one that likes to play games. That or push my buttons which definitely comes from Devin.
That’s all the pictures we got and pretty much how the exam went. Oh, you wanted to know if it is a boy or girl, do you? Well, it is definitely not definite. Baby was keeping it’s legs together and at times had them crossed. However, with a pretty clear butt shot, the tech gave it an 80% lean towards a girl. So wahoo! We are having a GIRL (we think).
But just in case, Devin and I decided we would have a few boys names ready (or at least bring the name book to the hospital) and keep all of our receipts. Maybe we’ll get lucky and get to have another ultrasound and get a little more definitive answer. But this works for now.
