Cheese!!

Yesterday, we had a follow-up ultrasound to get some of the pictures that were missed at the first anatomy scan.

We were able to go to another doctor's office instead of returning to the hospital, which turned out to be a real blessing. The ultrasound tech at that office was awesome. She talked us through every body part and detail. It was a fantastic experience and it was far better than our hospital experience. We were also able to confirm that this baby does not have cleft lip/palate, and that he is absolutely perfect in every single way.

He currently weighs 1lb 4oz. and is 11.5 inches long. I am also measuring about 6 days ahead of my original due date, but no due date change will be made as a result. He is growing "like a weed" according to the doctor, and everything looks great. What an absolute relief!! My blood pressure was also totally normal, (108/62), and it has been high at every single one of my other appointments. She took it manually at this appointment, and at my regular office they have an electric cuff. I think I need to ask to have them take it manually from now on!!

Here are some pictures:
