I like to have my insides looked at. All at once. All in the same month.
Or at least that would be how it seems the last couple of weeks. My neck ultrasound was last week and the baby's anatomy ultrasound was yesterday. One of those was definitely more enjoyable than the other. Any guesses?
Honestly... I've yet to have a FUN experience with a diagnostic ultrasound. I kind of wish my first experience with ultrasound would have been pregnancy because diagnostic ultrasounds are kind of terrifying. And because that had been my primary experience with ultrasonography, it made the first couple baby ultrasounds kind of nerve racking for me.
But I am happy to report that Tuesday, I found out that my neck ultrasound was fine! No sign of anything weird growing up in my neck. That's what I like to hear.
And yesterday, we found out the baby's anatomy looked good! They couldn't get one picture they needed, so we didn't get totally an all-clear for the anatomy. But we'll get that looked at when we go back for the growth ultrasound in 4 weeks.
From here on out, we will have ultrasounds done every 4 weeks. This is to make sure the baby is growing properly, since I accidentally exposed the baby to radiation (via radioactive iodine).
Oh... and we found out the baby's gender. :)
So far I think Baby Janney is still pretty cute. But I may be biased.
