MFM Appointment

Good news: he is still a he!

That was probably my biggest/silliest fear going in to yesterday's MFM (maternal fetal medicine) appointment. Not how our baby is growing and thriving in the womb (which of course is much more important), but if he still had the goods. Thank goodness my fears were never realized because I really didn't want to have to dress a little girl in boy clothes for the first year.

Anyways, back to the appointment. I figured it would work similarly to the appointments I've been going to at my regular OB's office. You know... step on the scale, pee in a cup and take my blood pressure, the usual. Apparently they don't care about the vitals at the MFM office! They didn't even take my blood pressure, which is weird, because.... uh.... that's why I was referred to them in the first place! Oh, they didn't take my fundal height either, which is standard practice for this stage of pregnancy at most OB offices.

But, we did get a very extensive ultrasound! The tech spent a good 25 minutes measuring little man and explained everything as she was measuring.

More good news: he's measuring right on track!

Little man is in the 44th percentile for growth, which is perfect! We got some decent ultra sound pictures which I still need to scan in to my computer, so give me a few days to post those. The tech even turned on the 3D ultra sound, which was really awesome!

I go in to more detail on our MFM appointment in this week's vlog, plus some other random crap about being pregnant.
