Things went super today for my 18wk2day sono. The baby is a-ok, with all of its vitals looking good!!! We did NOT find out the gender, and the tech was super sweet. She said "I'm not gonna even look there. If you don't want to know, then I shouldn't know either!"
DH did not make it, he got tied up with work. However, I ended up with an entourage nevertheless: my mom, Gram, youngest sis, and DS came along! DS was so sweet - rubbing my leg while he watched his little bro/sis on the screen. When we asked him what he thought, he let out this reticent little "good."
The tech DID eventually kick everyone out because she had to switch to an internal U/S to check/measure the distance between my placenta and cervix. They are quite close, but not overlapping. I'm going to have to have some extra checks to make sure that the placenta moves up as baby grows. Anyone else ever had this happen???
Once I saw the doctor(it's a group practice, so you have to see each doctor who might deliver you - but I love 90% of them!) she commended me on minimal weight gain so far - especially after the holidays and in comparison to my weight gain with DS. I was relieved, because I've been a lot more conscientious about it this time.Woot!
She also mentioned that since DS was 9lbs 1oz and I delivered naturally, they will carefully monitor this LO to make sure I don't go any bigger than that next time. She warned me that this time, they might choose to induce me before the due date, so be ready for that possibility. (Which I am ok with, although I had no problem delivering DS. I don't think I'd want to deliver a baby much bigger than that naturally.)
She also mentioned they will check my glucose 2x instead of once - probably at 24/28 weeks, then again at 32/34 weeks.Overall it was a great appointment. I go back for a check up again February 5th!
