We had our 14 week OB appointment yesterday and, shocker of shockers, I kept my pants on for the entire appointment!!! Literally, we got there for the ultrasound and I was ready to unbutton and remove, lol, but no - we are finally on to the belly probe! yay! Our little girl was perfectly sized for 14 weeks and has a huge sac still...so lots of room to grow...but she was too big for the technician to do the NT measurements. I guess she needs a few "practice" scans and needs to submit the measurements, etc, in order to be certified. However, once she found out that we weren't good candidates, she was totally cool about it! She spoiled us rotten, moving the wand around for different angles and taking fun pictures. She was seriously the best. At one point, our baby stretched out her arm to full straight length! We saw arms waiving around her head and legs flailing. Brett kept asking me - "and you really don't feel that?" whenever she'd make a huge full body movement. It was beautiful! So, without further ado...
Here is a side view...notice the hand in front of her face! It was much clearer on the screen and at one point, we counted 5 fingers!
This one is a little scary, lol, it is either her "Leave me alone!!!" shot or her "ROCK ON!". Personally, with the little skull thing she has going on, I'm going for the "rock on" one.
Another angle with the arms raised.
We did get to see her legs too...but none of the pictures showed them. She was mostly reclining in there with her legs slightly elevated, looking very chill.
I found out yesterday that my insurance only covers one more 'routine' ultrasound, which will probably be around 20 weeks (this one was a total "freebie"). We are also likely to do a 3D/4D one after 30 weeks because the office makes them pretty affordable since they know they are all out of pocket and those pics are so cool. Unbelievably, I am starting to believe that we will make it that far. I'm really starting to enjoy this. I feel better...still a little nauseous, I have some cramping, am having heart palpitations (which my doctor has said is par for the course at this stage), and still, unfortunately, don't love food yet....but I'm not all-out sick like I was. I have to get Brett to help me take a belly shot...still not really looking pregnant, just a little chunkier around the middle. I have no waist to speak of but no real baby belly either, but I'll post a pic of that soon so you guys can be the judges. I am hugely relieved to have made it this far...and am very very thankful.
