I still cannot believe where I am at in this pregnancy. I think I must admit, over the course of the last few days, This has begun to feel real.
We had the Level 2 and Anatomy Scan done last Thursday. We got to spend an hour looking at our beautiful little miracle on the screen. She was amazing, moving all over the place. Everything looked good, all parts accounted for, and such an amazing wonder. I cannot believe that we will be her parents, I cannot wait to meet her, to see what she will look like, her color hair, her eyes, her tiny feet. I've been feeling great. There really isn't much of anything I can complain about, expect the heartburn. That is brutal sometimes. But I know in the end, how much it will all be worth it. I haven't had the opportunity to feel movement still. And I will admit, I am becoming increasingly impatient about it. However, I did find out at the A/S that I have an anterior placenta, which means the placenta sits in the front, closest to my abdomen. Usually it sits in the back, closest to, well, your back. There is nothing wrong about it being there, it does however mean it will take me longer to feel her then most. This makes me a little sad, but, as long as I know she's doing well in there, I'm ok with it. I was also told that they want to do a fetal echo, which is just another sonogram. The doctors have no reason to suspect that there is anything wrong with her heart, but, they did have a little trouble getting a good picture at the A/S since she is still very tiny, and her little heart is so small. They just want to make sure, and they are going to keep on top of her too since she is was conceived through IVF.
After our appointment, we went off to Buy Buy Baby and ordered the crib and dresser! Wow, that was a big step! But I am so glad we did! Though we were told it could come in early, we were told that delievery can take 16-18 weeks! Yikes! 18 weeks puts me at 37 weeks!
That's really the biggest update so far.
So here is week 19's photo!
I apologize of the terrible picture! And yes, here is a sneak peek of Nursery colors.
