Had the big U/S this morning..

and we are still team GREEN!

The baby looks wonderful. Already weighs a little over a 1lb and measuring a week ahead of schedule. The baby would not cooperate for a few pictures so I have to go back in two weeks. The u/s tech is not concerned about any problems they just need the correct postioning. Also my placenta still has not moved all of the way. So we will have to have another u/s at 28 weeks. I swear my child just likes to be on the machine. I am blaming my husband and his big head for my baby having a head in the 90th percentile. My ob appt went well I am still down 5lbs. The doctor told me I need to start gaining weight from here on out. (not that I have been trying to lose any)

I would upload pics but I am pg.org illiterate on how to upload pics.

That's great that the baby looks good - at least you get a few more peaks down the road so maybe you can find out the sex.

For loading pics you need an account with a photo sharing site. I prefer Flickr. If you have a yahoo account, then you're already set. You upload to flickr account. Click on the picture after you load it and there's a drop down at the top with icons for facebook and twitter and such. Click on "Grab the html/bbc code. You want to choose medium for the size (usually unless it's in a siggy) and then you want to copy and past the code into your message.... Make sure the "BBC" one is selected and not the "HTML" one. You'll see a bunch of coding in your post, but click preview and you'll be able to see what your post will look like. Sounds complicated, but it's really not. Give it a try when you've got a minute and you'll see! Smile Hope that helps.

Best way to gain weight in pregnancy is up your protein - meat, peanut butter... stay away from junk food. I lost 40lbs while pregnant (doc had my diet up to 3000 cal/day and I still lost :eek:) but I am extra fluffy (need to lose 100lbs).

As for loading pictures, use a site like photobucket to upload the pictures and then use the [ img ] code.

Hopefully your LO will be a bit more cooperative next time. I'm glad your appt went well other than that. Hopefully your previa will correct itself soon as well.

Here's hoping your placenta still has time to move completely out of the way.

glad baby looks great! I hope the next u/s will tell the gender Smile

I am guessing my doc will ask the same of me about weight gain, since I am still losing, not much, but still in thw wrong direction.

Did you want to find out the gender and just couldn't? For some reason I though you were waiting to find out at delivery.
