Anatomy scan today!! *UPDATE*

I'm in the waiting room. So excited to see baby, make sure it's healthy and find out if its a boy or girl! I'll update whenever I'm done later! Smile

Update: Everything went great!! Baby is measuring a little bit small but other than that is totally healthy!! It took us a while to see the gender and were only able to tell after I got up to pee and she changed positions. You can officially add us to team PINK!! It's a girl!! We are so excited and just thrilled that she is healthy. Now to narrow down the name Smile

Congrats!!! I bet you are thrilled. I have to say though, I am sooo jealous that you already found out! I won't find out till the 23rd...that is if the baby cooperates! Smile

Thanks everyone!! I didn't really have a feeling one way or another, although I was thinking girl the last week when I had a dream it was a girl. But I thought DS was a girl so not much stock in that. DH and I have narrowed the names down to either Kenley James or Emma James. We have been talking about it all day and can't decide. We both like them but DH is like 55% Kenley and I'm 55% Emma. Ha! So we'll see how that goes.

We went today and bought her a few little outfits just for fun. It has made this pregnancy SO much more real!! So excited to see what everyone else is having!!

My bad: forgot that Maddie knows already too, so "Placenta Placement" guess is at 50% accuracy so far.

Yay! Congrats Caitlin! So excited for y'all! I love both of the names. I've never heard Kenley before, but oh so cute! I can't wait to find out what I'm having. We already knew at this point with DS. I don't know how any of you green team people do it!! Smile

Thanks everyone!!

I got a call on Monday from the nurse that the anatomy scan didn't go as well as we thought. It turns out our girl has two cysts in her brain. They usually go away no problem on their own but they can be soft markers for the trisomies. We go back on the 25th to do a level 2 ultrasound to get a better look at everything. Praying she is ok and they go away!!

Good luck. It always bothers me when they act like everything looks great when it doesn't.

Hopefully its nothing or goes away on its own. On the plus side you do get to see your little one again.

Thanks for the support ladies! I'm fighting with Medicaid right now trying to get them to approve me before my appt. Otherwise I think they'll reschedule. But I am looking forward to seeing her again and hopefully finding out that things are ok! I so appreciate the prayers and positive thoughts and will KUP of course Smile

Hey Caitlin-
I just saw this and will definitely keep you and baby girl in my prayers. Both my boys had something with their hearts that were soft markers for trisomy's that turned out to be nothing. I did a lot of research on it while waiting for my level 2 ultrasound and it looks like that is happening more and more now b/c of how good the ultrasound technology is and then it turns out to be fine. In fact, my OB with my first said things like this happen so often now, he didn't even recommend the level 2 ultrasound. I hope that is the case for your little one! I hope that you get everything figured out with insurance and have a super reassuring ultrasound soon!
