We made it to 6 months! We've finally got to see her little face. She made us work for that! 5 ultrasounds later they got all the pictures they needed.
We had an emergency ultrasound at 18 weeks, because they couldn't find the heartbeat and thought we lost the baby. Turns out the placenta is in front and baby is wayyyy back in the pelvis. We have yet to hear her heart beat on the Doppler. Stresses me out a little each time. Because it was just a quick ultrasound to check for a heartbeat they sent me back 2 weeks later. At that ultrasound she couldn't get very many pictures but did tell us it's a girl (yay!!). I saw my OB that afternoon and she referred me to their ultrasound clinic the next morning to try to get all the pictures. That tech was positive she'd get all the pictures she needed! Oh dear, this little girl was not giving us anything. I was there for 2 hours and had the specialist even came in to look. She was face to my spine, hands on her face, knees tucked up and way back into my pelvis. So they had me come back the next day and the next day. They wanted me back again that week but I said no, it's an hour and a little bit away and I was so sore from them pushing and digging and bouncing, to get pictures. So back again 2 weeks later, and they got a few more pictures. We still don't have all that we need but they said it's good enough and from what they can tell everything looks good.
A bunch of friends have been having babies the past bit and it's making me so excited! We've picked out a name already, but won't tell until she's here. Laura and I switched a bunch of clothes and I got a ton free off the Facebook garage sale site for free. So I feel like we're getting ready for her. I picked up a dresser and am hoping to paint it this weekend for her then organize all the teeny tiny clothes.
