Everything looks perfect. What a relief! I asked if we could do any growth measurements this time, and my OB measured the abdomen, head, and long bones. Everything measured right on and the head measured a week ahead! I think growth restriction doesn't really hit until a little later, but it was great to know that right now, in this day, everything is fine. The fluid looked perfect too.
Also, the doctor was right, we have a little girl in there. He called it at 12 weeks and we couldn't see anything at 15 weeks, but today he said "he doesn't think, he KNOWS it's a girl".
I didn't do the second trimester screening... should I regret that? I did the 1st trimester screening with the nuchal fold measurement and the blood test and everything came out great. For this reason, my OB felt that we were fine and didn't need it. It's not a big predictor of pre-e is it? I think I read that somewhere. Maybe it's one more thing not to worry about. They are going to be monitoring me closely for pre-e anyway.
Now I just have to keep my head until our 21 week appointment.
