I had my ultrasound last week, and I know I've REALLY slacked on the scrapbooking, but I thought I'd post here anyways if you ladies were interested. The baby looks good and is measuring right on time, weighing 1 pound. There was one thing however that the tech found... my doctor said that one of my baby's kidney's has a larger than normal ureter coming out from it. (The condition has a specific name, but I can't remember). Apparently, it's supposed to be 3mm, and one of them is measuring 4mm. My doctor doesn't seem to be too worried about it - but my husband was getting freaked out about it. I"ll have to find out what the condition is called, but I will have another ultrasound at 32 weeks to check it again - doctor says it corrects itself most of the time. She said if i was 35 or older, it may indicate that my baby has Down Syndrome, but I had the NT testing done and the chances of my baby having it was VERY slim - so i'm not really worried about it.
And we are still keeping the baby surprise!!! (My husband swears he saw a twig and berries, but he has no clue what in the world he's looking at!) LOL The only person who knows what we're having is the tech and my best friend's mother.. she makes beautiful baby blankets and I wanted a gender specific blanket when the baby arrives... so I made this card and had the tech circle boy or girl! (ok, so does this count as scrapping?!) haha...
And a couple of U/S pics... (they aren't the greatest, but these are the best ones I have)
Is it renal pylectasis? If so, my DS had that in utero, and it resolved by like 36 weeks. I had to have a few follow up u/s to keep an eye on it, but all ended up good and he didn't have to be followed by urology at birth. He also had another condition, which when paired with the kidney thing is called a "soft marker" for some chromosomal abnormalities, so I was freaked. But everything was a-ok! Considering your risk for any other issues is low and there are no other findings on u/s, sounds like all should be good, but I will still keep you and LO in my thoughts in any case!
ah, such a cute little bean! I love looking at U/S pics! I'm sure everything will be just fine.

Awww, I hope the 32 weeks u/s shows everything to be great. It sounds like the doctor wasn't worried so that is wonderful.
I love the card you had made. How funny that the only person in your life who know is her!
What a sweet, beautiful story. Love those pics. So cute!!

How cute. I love US pics! I hope at the next US everything is just perfect!
LOVE the card idea! So cute! Yay for team SURPRISE!
Lauren- You're right!! That's exactly what it's called!! (I could not find it online - thank you sooooooooooo much!!!) I've found some sites that explained it and it looks like it will most likely fix itself... especially since it's only 4mm (only 1 mm more than the "norm"!) I'm not worried about it, but I can't thank you enough for posting!! I could kiss you right about now!
My bf's little girl had that too but it resolved itself as well. So hopefully you get the same results.
I seriously LOVE the card idea. Fabulous idea!
