18 Weeks

I had my big ultrasound today.  We took all the boys with us so they could see the baby.  I was a little disappointed because it was the fastest u/s I've ever had (and I've had a lot!).  I was hoping the tech would get some good profile shots and views of the baby's face but she didn't.  The baby was moving so much it was hard to get a good look.  We did get a cute pic with the baby's hand up under it's chin and a pic of a tiny foot.  We only got to watch for about 3 or 4 minutes before she shut the monitor off so we wouldn't see the gender.  She says she couldn't tell anyway.  They are having me get a repeat u/s in 4 weeks just because they couldn't get a clear pic of all 4 chambers of baby's heart since he/she was moving so much.  The tech said that from what she could see, everything looked fine though.  That's a huge relief!  It's funny because she kept commenting on how active baby was but I don't feel much due to my anterior placenta.  I've never had one before and it's a little disappointing because I love feeling movement.  I feel a few kicks here and there but noting like I did with the boys.  I'm hoping that as baby gets bigger and stronger, I'll feel more.  Anyway, we are just super happy that baby looks good and I'm getting more and more excited every day!
