Anatomy Scan

We had our anatomy scan yesterday at 18w4d. Everything looked great and baby boy {definitely still a boy!} was moving all around. I am still not feeling definite movement, just some popping bubble-like things. I loved seeing his hands and feet so clearly. I can't wait to kiss them in five months! All organs looked normal. Head, arms and legs were measuring great, with the head measurement a little ahead. Pretty funny because my side of the family is known as the "Big Head Family." The tech did say I will likely have another ultrasound around 28 weeks to be sure my placenta is moving off of my cervix. Okay by me... another chance to see our little man :)

I also had my monthly OB appointment with Dr. L. I have caught up on my weight gain and I'm up a total of 8 lbs. She confirmed all tests have come back normal and negative. It was a pretty uneventful appointment, but I do have a funny story. I was asking Dr. L about her policy on how long she goes past the due date. She said she prefers not to go past 41 weeks, and if I agree to it, will try to move things along beginning in week 39. Then Nick speaks up and says "Well, I am okay with 39 weeks." You should have seen mine and Dr. L's faces! We were laughing and giving him a hard time, asking if it's been uncomfortable for him. Oh, how he cracks me up.

Switching topics - we have narrowed our name list to five names that we both like!!!! It's a start and that makes this type A girl very happy :)

We got a few cute profile shots.
