That's awesome!!! I'm so happy you finally got to see your baby growing right on track. Smile

On a side note... most places across the country are now not requiring moms to drink any water before ultrasounds. With my last 3 pregnancies (on in MI, and 2 here in NM) they have not required any water drinking.

the technician was kind of pissed and said she doesnt understand why they keep telling patients to do that, I should of never drank the water i told her it was pure torture to keep holding it and just the pressure of pushing down on my belly would of made me pee anyways

Awesome news!! I have never had to drink water for any of my kids either. I think just drinking as you normlly do and being able to hold it makes more sense. But over all it didn't matter and you got to see your bean! Yay!!
