Need to go back for 2nd anatomy scan...

Baby wasn't cooperating this morning. The tech got some measurements but baby refused to flip on their side so she couldn't get a good analysis of the face/brain/heart/organs. Baby was all calm just laying there upside down on their belly, arms up on my left side, legs/feet down on my right. Just chillin away. Saw them stretch out a few times and kick/wave but overall baby was very lazy.

Now I wait for the report to hit the midwife, then I expect a call where I will have to go and get another requisition for another U/S in a week or two.

On a side note I have two fibroids filling up some space, but I have to wait for the doc to read the report before I can know if those are causing an issue. The black area/amniotic fluid looked kind of low which concerned me, almost like it seems he/she wouldn't have enough space to move around. But the tech couldn't comment on that.

Try taking a candy bar with you next time... It'll wake them up a bit.

Well, I drank a litre of chocolate almond milk (instead of water) an hour before the appointment. Baby was active at around 8:30AM, and I was scheduled for 9AM. But they didn't take me until 9:45AM so by then baby was all chill from the sugar/chocolate high I'm sure.

I'm booking the follow up for the end of next week so this time I'm going to take something with me to eat or drink closer to the time.
