Had my US!!!! (Updated with link to pictures on facebook :)

So it's only ONE crazy acrobatic baby!

.... and it's another GIRL!

The baby is so acrobatic the tech (she is the ultrasound instructor at Kaiser College) said she had NOT seen many babies this FLIPPY before lol The baby was breech at first kind of with her feet and arms totally stretched out. The first thing baby did was show us her privates!!!!!

Then she flipped head down, then rolled to the left side into a ball (that hurt), then bump stretched out towards the right and was doing flips, it took us an hour to get pictures (and I was only scheduled for a 30 minute session) but she was just crazy in there. I had contractions while on the table caused by her movements - the feeling on my pelvis is apparently from when she flips face down into my 'vagina' and bounces back up for another flip. IT WAS NUTS!

She could not find anything anomalous in there - Looks like a totally healthy girl! According to the measurements she dates at 27 weeks exactly and the estimated weight was 2 and a half pounds. I will scan some of the pics, her face is CHUBBY!

So yes, the status is very healthy crazy child that will probably give me gray hair by the time she turns two lol

WOW! I am STILL in shock that there was only ONE baby and sort of relieved that I won't have to jump through hoops to have a homebirth! YAYAYAYAYAY

I swear I will scan and upload the pictures tonight! My 4 year old has a sore throat so I was up all night with her and all day now and managed to get fit in for a US today (since the symptoms I was having were making me freak) and all is well with the world! Oh, and the tech thinks I'm measuring larger because my placenta is literally right up and back flush against the fundus and apparently it's pushing up some? LOL Placenta's do weird things! I don't know, she said something about my organs pushing it forward while it was up there or whatever.

Okay, gotta run! Back later with pictures

So glad you got your u/s! Every time I've gone in for an appt they area amazed how much my little guy moves too. When I had my u/s the tech had a hard time measuring some parts of him because he would scoot away and whenever I go in for appts the drs have a hard time getting him to sit still long enough to listen for his HB ha ha.

Of course mine isn't doing flips like yours! But glad you got your mind put at ease! And yay for another girl!

She sounds like she's going to be a fun baby if she's already doing all those flips. Good that everything checked out too!

Okay, I made the photo album public on Facebook -- http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3024303203343.150026.1135645035&type=1

You know, I swear I see two faces in some of the pictures LOL I did read somewhere that sometimes mirror images occur though so I'm thinking that's why we see two faces in some pictures but HAHAHAHA Just helps to add to the confusion!

LOL Yes, 34 pictures in total! Took forever though so once she could get the face on the screen (from all the movment) she was just super-clicking like a madwoman before baby went away again lol

Okay, here is what I mean by weird things in my Ultrasound -- I only used 4 pictures for an example, but several of them are weird. Don't we have a US tech on the board???? Cause my husband is insisting we go get another ultrasound somewhere else.

In the last picture I definitely see two faces. I know sometimes they can see mirror images, but I dunno how good the mirror image can look.

Still I love the pics of her face.

Ahhh, that last one totally looks like 2 faces! I don't know anything about u/s pics.

I'm glad everything looked good though and that you likely have one really active baby. Where the girls able to go in and see the u/s done too? Where they excited to see her?

I have to say, it is all very strange. Looking at the pics, she does look different in some than in others, as if there are two babies.

Can you rent a doppler and see if you can pick up on two heartbeats? I am stalking you cause i find this all so interesting! Biggrin

I posted my entire album piblic on one of my FB groups because there are thousands of people there I got SO MANY conflicting comments that I am definitely going in for US #2 -- besides, nothing wrong with seeing the baby again LOL

I am sure it's just mirroring.

Great pics! I am glad everything looked great.

Ok so my thought is... it is the placenta. I had alot of the same things with my 3d/4d us with Carter and the tech said that the babies like to snuggle up to it all the time. They also can look a bit weird in a US pic.

Okay, I am definitely going for a second US on Friday the 3rd at 3:20pm with MY US tech. I will NOT try to save on gas and I will make the out of town trip because there is no doubt in my mind that he will be thorough, will know exactly how to use the machine (the woman the other day couldn't get stuff to work during most of the appointment (couldn't switch back and forward from 2D to 3D and so on) , and he WILL go all over my belly. Nice thing is that he is going to do it for $75 bucks since I am doing it for a 2nd opinion and the office will give me a DVD video of the entire session so that is awesome anyways!!!!

I will also be more confident on his measuring baby capabilities. Nothing wrong with a second look lol

And definitely nothing wrong with seeing your LO again AND getting her on film! Then you can always see her bouncing around like last time!

Hope this week goes by fast so we can all know what's going on inside your belly! Lol.

Wow, so are you still thinking of getting a second/third opinion lol I can see the second face in a quite of few of the photos and its not as Chubby persay as the other!! Let us know what you decide to do!!

Oh yes, my appointment is set for Friday the 3rd at 3:20 pm! No way I am going to sit here wondering if there are two babies. For me, it's not so much the "second face" in the same US pictures as it is the differences between the faces in the album. The 1st two pics look like one face, and the others look like a different baby entirely to me! LOL
