Babyice – The nuchal scan

Ok…so I don’t have a scanner at home…so I took photos of the scan pictures with my camera. Forgive the quality! I’m sure you just want to SEE 🙂

 

Is that a willy we see?

Babyice was wriggling around the WHOLE time. So much more than James ever did…oh…another surprise…the doctor had my amnio results from my last pregnancy…and James was a Jamie! Hectic. Another mindshift!

 

Anyway…she didn’t see anything that bothered her, said that Babyice looks normal and movement and everything is normal. Babyice was swallowing and had fluid in the stomach which is all good. The bridge of the nose was visible and the fold of the skin in the neck was 2.1 which is great. I was still sent for a blood test afterwards to confirm as they can’t always tell everything on the scan. I told her they can shove their amniocentesis. I don’t want one, but she doesn’t feel like it will be necessary. Shame…while in the waiting room I heard the receptionist speaking to a lady that had to come in for an amnio today. Sucks 🙁  Anyway, Babyice looks fine and we are ecstatic!

 

The doctor is pretty certain that Babyice is a boy! She printed out two scan pics pointing towards what she says is undoubtedly a penis! Rudi is super chuffed…so am I! I actually felt quite sorry for Babyice being shaken around like she did…Ok…I’ll start saying “he”…He would lie on his back so she could get the neck measurement. This one likes to lie on his tummy like his mommy 🙂

 

Last night with Tannie was a false alarm. I told her My Evil Mother is on the prowl and trying to come to her for help and she said she wouldn’t dare set her foot in her house again after the last time and I was caught up on some more gossip about My Evil Mother. Eish. That woman. So…I don’t think I will have to worry much about Tannie trying to wriggle her in here.

 

Yay for us! Yay for Babyice! Yay yay yay!
