18 week ultrasound

Postby julieb » Wed Oct 17, 2012 08:43 am

I had my 18 week anatomy ultrasound last week with my MFM and everything looked great with baby! Baby was in the 60th% and is measuring 5 days ahead...I can't really believe it but I think that will just give us a little more wiggle room for when my BP goes up and baby starts dropping percentiles which is what has happened in both of my other pregnancies. My MFM was happy with how everything is going and I go back in 4 weeks to check growth, I will be 22 weeks. By 22 weeks with my son I was on bedrest with crazy high BP and they didn't know if I would even make it to 24 weeks before delivery so I am very nervous for the upcoming weeks and probably the rest of this pregnancy! I am happy that everything is going well but I am terrified that something could go wrong any day now! I am crossing my fingers for the 2nd trimester BP dip, which I got around 20 weeks with my daughter. I cannot believe this pregnancy is going by so fast and even though I will be scared from here on out, I am really trying to enjoy it because this will be our last one!
