24w Ultrasound

I'm getting a little frustrated with my MFM's office. I make an appointment with my Dr. but then at the last minute for who knows what reason I always seem to end up with someone else...


But today it was OK - because I found another Dr. that I like - Dr. H... We talked about my BP - it's on the rise, but isn't skyrocketing yet - so we are still in a hold pattern there. And no protein - YEAH!!!! So it turned out to be an OK morning after all. I'll have the GD test next time I go in at 26w and then we'll talk about when to start doing NST's


We had another ultrasound to monitor growth. So far everything is still looking good (it still shocks me every time the ultrasound person says that). Big Boy was being difficult so she couldn't get all the views / angles she was trying to get - but he weighs 1.5lbs already (right on track for gestational age...) and my fluid levels are right where they should be!!!! On top of Bog Boy being difficult the ultrasound tech had problems getting a good head measurement because his head was right under one of my gigantic lovenox bruises. She showed us how the picture changed when she hovered over the bruise...she thought at first I had some kind of fibroid problem, but no... I just have a spotty lumpy belly. She finally got him to roll to a different spot and got the measurment she needed. His head is BIG!! (Good news / bad news if you ask me...)

He kept his hands or feet in front of his face almost the whole time! But we did get to watch him swallow and stick his hand in his mouth a few times. It was kind of cool because I could feel him move and see him move at the same time. Totally freaked me out a little bit.

How cute! He looks awesome. My son was the same way, I can't tell you how many ultrasound pics I have of him covering his face.
