I had my big 20-week anatomy scan today. The baby is looking good. SHE (yes, it's a GIRL!) is measuring 2 days behind, but that is good. Baby is perfect. I haven't put the pictures on the computer yet, but I will. Baby is just perfect. She wasn't the most cooperative thing there could ever be. She had her legs crossed for quite a while. She decided to put her arm over her face with her hand in a fist. I think she was annoyed with all the jiggling. The ultrasound tech (awesome lady) had to keep jiggling Baby Girl around because she wasn't cooperating. She covered her whole abdomen at one point by crossing her arms. But everything is just perfect.
I had my ultrasound done at a Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor. He has decided to keep me on as a patient due to my hypertension. I have no complaints, he's a very nice doctor. So I'm going back in 8 weeks to see him and he wants to monitor the growth of the baby, since smaller babies can be related to hypertension, even if it is medicated. so, just add another doctor to my list of doctors. I see my obstetrician on March 31st. I don't see Dr. F (the MFM Doc) until May. And then, he wants to start monitoring me every few weeks. I guess I'm going to have a lot of days where I'm leaving work without being able to do my hall duty. I get to work early enough in the day to make up for that time, so I'm not worried about that.
That's about it for me now. I haven't posted pictures yet, since I have to take pictures of the pictures, as my main computer died, so I can't scan the pictures to a computer. I'll post them soon!
