Our alien baby!

Yesterday we had our NT scan, I was 12 weeks and 1 day. According to the technician, everything looks perfectly fine. Our baby is a little bit lazy though, he/she was just chilling and didn't want to move into a position to be able to measure its neck. I had to drink a bunch of water and walk up and down the stairs. That seemed to help a little. I don't understand all the measurements but it seems my baby may be measuring a little larger than expected, she put me at 13 weeks in the paperwork. But she didn't mention anything about it, so I am not worried. We got to hear the heartbeat, still going strong, she said it was 160, though my husband swears he heard her say 116 lol. In one of the pictures the baby looks so cute, it had its hand over by its mouth. In another, it looks like an alien. My hubby thought that was hilarious :). You can totally see it here.

Here is the normal picture.

Then afterwards I went to Motherhood Maternity and treated myself to a mini shopping spree for maternity clothes! It is starting to feel more real!

Awwwww! Hi there LO!

My problem was getting my bean to hold still long enough to get good measurements! How long did they have you walk the stairs?

The baby was fine for the other measurements, it seemed like it was just the neck one she had trouble with. Baby was on its back with its arms by its head so I guess it was hard to measure correctly. I only went up the stairs once because she said she would be back for me in 5 minutes and the stairs were far away! After that I kinda danced around to get him/her moving.

OMG, so today I get a call from Kaiser, and of course I freak out. It was a voicemail from radiology saying they needed to schedule an ultrasound and to call back. So I call and the receptionist says, "Your doctor ordered an ultrasound for July 18"....I asked why so far away and she said, "Oh its just a general anatomy one to check the sex of the baby".


How annoying, I already have an appointment scheduled for June 26 to see my ob/gyn, you would think they would just schedule the anatomy ultrasound then and not call me the day after my NT scan just to cause me anxiety. Sometimes I wonder about these people...lol. Hopefully it's still nothing and I don't get anymore calls.

I scheduled my anatomy scan today - Mine is July 19th!  I love that we are doing our stuff so close together!  My next OB appt is on June 25th lol - my anatomy scan is with a specialist because of my age so I won't be doing that with my regular OB
