With all the business of moving, we never received our 20 week anatomy ultrasound in VA. We had one scheduled, but it was cancelled because the Tech broke her ankle and they were not able to reschedule before we moved to NC. So...my new OB here definitely wanted to have one done even though we are quite past the "time" to do that specific ultrasound. Today I went in to have it done and I also had to do the glucose and iron test. Everything went great with both-we passed with flying colors. :)
The ultrasound tech was awesome. She was super sweet and we had a great conversation, because she is also a Mommy of two boys, age 2 & 4 years. She spent lots of time checking out all of Aiden's organs and explaining to me all that she was looking at. Aiden was very cooperative and confirmed multiple times to us that he is indeed a boy. She said his estimated weight was 2lb 14 oz, so she said with a "margin of error" I can say I am now carrying a 3lb baby boy. I can hardly believe he is that "big." She was also able to actually see a few hairs on his head. That was crazy to me, plus it just makes me wonder more and more what he is going to look like since David didn't have any hair until after he turned one year. Exciting news is that he is already head down and face down and she explained that he 'should" stay that way so he should be set to be born in just 12 more weeks. Everything measured great in the 53% and so the due date is still fairly accurate, she said sometime mid January. I have this feeling he'll be born a day or a few before January 23rd, but that's just me :) The Lord knows and we'll wait for that timing ever so patiently.
This will be the last time we "see" this little guy before he is born, now that is crazy to think about! Until then, our sweet baby boy...
I love this one. I can just stare at his precious little face and imagine what it will be like when I hold him in my arms.
Profile shots are always precious too
This one shows that indeed he does have some hair, we shall see how much :)
