Twenty week ultrasound

Let’s just cut right to the chase here…

Ultrasound in progress

It’s a girl!

Though, we sort of knew that anyway didn’t we?!

*grins*

Congratulations Dandad, you do get a Dandorter in September! Mummy and Daddy are pretty pleased too mind.

Here she is, little *Insert Name I’m Not Telling You,* looking straight at you:

Looking at us

The trip to see my OB GYN and ultrasound technician went very well yesterday. All appears to be well with *ININTY* and she’s looking good. We got to see all her little fingers waving at us on two perfect little hands attached to two perfect little arms. She’s measuring a little bigger than the twenty weeks she’s supposed to be and according to the technician she looks great.

One worry cleared up for me was that the placenta has indeed moved up from where it was overlapping my cervix and thus away from being a risk and potential c-section on doctor’s orders. Phew.

Sam came to the appointment with us and was a very good boy throughout the ultrasound process. I’m not sure he quite realised he was looking at his future little sister and nemesis though.

In the doctor’s office he then got lively and decided it was boring in the stroller. Much more fun to push his book into the bottom of the reclining bed where it fell underneath, and then get upset. Doctor and Daddy had to crawl around on the floor and try to retrieve it using random flat medical instruments. Made for a much more comedic appointment than usual. Good job son.

I’ve put on almost another five pounds in a month. I blame birthday cake.

See a few more scans here.

    Okay…what exactly are we looking at? I used to use ultrasound to find cracks in airframes….so where are the rivets?

    Can we start guessing her name?

    Will you tell us if we guess?
    Why is it a secret?

    Aunty Melly & Uncle Sy are very happy to be getting a neice 🙂 Whatever her name

    HURRAH!!!
    Now tell me, where abouts is the little princess? I can just make out the mashed potato you must’ve eaten for lunch or is that cake… yep it looks like cake to me.

    Where is she?

    Click through to the Flickr page and you’ll see the scan has notes added over it to give you a clue.

    Name?

    Feel free to guess. I’d be curious to see if you can peg it! We’re pretty convinced, but are just keeping it quiet for maybe a few days so we can see if we do indeed like calling her *ININTY* before we go public. 😀
