Hey girls smile
We had our ultrasound a couple weeks ago at 18weeks, but we were told bubby was a tad small.. so they asked us to come back so they cn re-check the heart and other tricky body parts to see.. and let me be honest.. i was kinda excited to get to go back, because it means we get to see bubs again grin
So we are 21weeks now and we had our antenatal visit this morning and lets say bub was very unco-operative.. it was actually quite entertaining for me, the doctor was unimpressed as she had the doppler on my tummy and everytime she would get the doppler near bub, bubs would kick the doppler! hahaha, and proceed to rollover.. so it took a good 30minutes to get a quick check of the heartbeat as bub just was not having it today! was quite funny because we saw bubs legs kick the doppler and would throw the probe to the side. haha. strong and active!
We went to the ultrasound place straight after our antenatal visit and again it took ages to get good pics of bubs heart and legs and feet.! the ultrasound lady even got to feel bubs kicking her as bubby would kick the ultrasound probe and the ladys hand.. haha, constant moving! even got a good visual of bub literally extending her leg straight into my bladder, and i was feeling it all and my DP was shocked how active bub was - constantly kicking and rolling around.. and i proceeded to explain.. you see what she does to me! she dances on my bladder! hahaha, was amazing seeing bubs a bit more developed and could see all her bones so clearly and we got a definite "GIRL". soo it was also nice to get a second opinion!! and this u/s lady was soo much better she printed us off photos of bubs feet and hands and face smile and we got to get 3D pics again was much better than last time. luckily the u/s lady could laugh she giggled with us as bubby kicked the probe and me!
So now our due date is set as (finally because our dates kept changing but our doc and the u/s lady said best EDD is 20.01.2012) 20th January - Baby girl and she is 390grams. me and DP have got our hearts set on calling her Minka Alexis smile and the placenta is located right at the back so thats why DP can feel the kicks already (which ironicly he felt the kicks for the first time on Fathers Day!) and i can see bubs rolling across my tummy and kicks coming out of my tummy at times because of the placenta location and because bubs is very very active! (and mind you i have a massive baby bump already ahaha )
and apparently because i am quite short and small they think there is a good chance that bub is smaller at times purely because i am alot smaller, so its good to know my baby isnt massive at this point tongue haha.
Hehe sorry for the life story i was so excited today! was the best ultrasound of bubs so much fun and laughs
Hope all of you are well and the pain is easing up and you all have a chance to put your feet up!
