Well, we had a sonogram yesterday, little bean is measuring right on target, 15 1/2 weeks. Heart, head, kidneys, legs and movement all looked good. Did an umbilical cord doppler, great flow he said. AND - it's a little girl! We are over the moon that we had good news yesterday. Back in 4 weeks for another appt. with the MFM.

Wonderful news! I had my ultrasound at 12 wks and they couldn't tell what the baby was. I don't go back until I am 20 wks. Disappointed to hear that! I wanted another ultrasound around 16 wks but the doctor said they couldn't do anything interventional anyways. I said well what about for my own peace of mind and self assurance? So, I have not convinced them to do another one. Boo!
