I was floored!!!!
Baby is weighing at 15oz!! and HB of 162. After 1 hour they pretty much gave up the on the heart measurements (especially because I had the echo coming up). That baby would NOT wake up for nothing!!! LOL! They made me drink OJ, turn on my sides, cough, and nothing! I couldn't even get a pic! But we got a pretty clear shot and its another little girl. Poor DH was a bit upset and has told me he wants to try again! LOL!!
Now of course since nothing has ever come easy in my life, one of her kidneys is dilated and it must be monitored. Of course this is a marker for downs and was asked if I wanted an amnio and I declined. I was told it could easily resolve itself before the baby arrives or it can be easily fixed after birth. I feel the amnio is a bigger risk. I forgot the exact name of it.
Heart is fine!!! Actually at this US she was very hyper!!
All in all everything looks good. I have a follow up with OB on the 20th. I was advised to get a cervical US to determine if that was the cause of the preterm brith the first time but I declined and said I would consult with my OB first.
Her name will be Elizabeth Cecilia. Cecilia was my mom's name
Yay Mari!!!! Congrats on your little girl! How sweet and exciting. Is your DS excited to be a big sister to a little girl? So glad to hear that the heart looked great, although sorry to hear about the kidney. I hope it resolves itself and is fine. I remember at T's anatomy scan they said he had a bit too much fluid around his brain, so of course I worried about that for the rest of the time, and then he was totally fine and normal when he was born. Congrats again, I love the name.
I will update the EDD thread.

Beautiful name! Congratulations on your little girl! Emma was 15 oz at hers and my DS was an even pound at his 20 week U/S. Some babies are just bigger and it doesn't mean anything.
