Big Ultrasound

I had my big ultrasound today and the baby looked perfect and was moving all over. It was amazing for a little while but then after it went on and on as the technician took all these shots from multiple angles of all the body parts I wanted to cry as I was so ready for it to be over -- all that pressure on my sensitive belly.

We are really pleased though and it looks like we are going to have a little boy.

I had the technician check out my fibroid and its grown to be 5x8cm (!) but wasn't bugging the kiddo at all. It looked like there was another small fibroid up top. I'm waiting for the full ultrasound report -- it had to be reviewed by the radiologist and then my OB. Brother if there is but it was pretty small still.

My OB said we wouldn't remove the fibroid (big one) at delivery unless it was pedunculated which it is not. He did say that typically they grow a lot and then around mid-pregnancy the growth will taper off some, just like for the baby.

Congratulations Ann!! I am so happy that your baby boy is growing and developing so well. I can't wait to hear more about him. Talk to you soon!

Congratulations! I bet you can breathe a little better knowing that the fibroid is not in the way. I hope I'm not being nosy, did you opt not to have the triple screen blood test? I know that they can see a lot of possible abnormalities from the u/s, but the blood test is a nice reassurance.
