our u/s today

Hey! We had our anatomy scan this morning. Baby looks great, estimated at 7 ounces. We are still on team green ! I don't know if any of you knew, but I have a brittle bone disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (type 4) and its 50/50 to pass it on. Ronan has it (and has broken both femurs already, but hasn't in 4 months) so we were hoping this baby doesn't have it (though we will love it just the same obviously). One of the indications at this point would be femurs measuring behind and possibly bowed. At this point with Ronan his femurs were 3 weeks behind (less than second percentile) and showing some bowing. This baby's femurs are only a week behind (17th percentile) and straight, so its looking like it may not have it! We will have another u/s at 28 weeks for growth and to get more measurements of the heart ( could see some views and they looked good, but they need more views) and then will see my perinatologist after that if growth is indicative of OI, and/or if I want to try for a vbac. All in all a great appointment. I'll add u/s pics in a bit, but here's a pic that we will be sending out to announce the pregnancy!
