So we actually had our u/s last week but didn't get around to posting about it yet. We found out we are having another boy! I was a little disappointed at first -- I think I wanted a girl more than I realized. But now I have had a week to get used to the idea and I am really excited for Derek to have a little brother. I hope the two of them are good friends because they will be close in age. And I am just so excited that we are having another baby, I can't wait to meet him!
Everything looked great on the u/s, but the OB said she had to point out these two little areas of increased fluid next to the brain, which could point to an increased risk of Down's if there were other factors too. But baby did not have the other risk factors so she thinks everything will probably be fine. I go back at 24 weeks for another scan to see if the fluid is down. Has anyone else experienced this before? She said it is pretty common and almost never leads to a problem, but I can't help worrying a bit.
