20 week u/s went well. he is a he, heart looks good from the angle they could get... he is a brat during u/s, this is 6th u/s and he always moves to bad angles... lol brain looks good and he is measuring ahead. doc said csection will,be between 36 and 37 weeks (thanksgiving week 11/22 through 11/29ish. my daughter was born 11/25/04 and we lost her 11/27/04.... so I'm hoping they will let me avoid those dates. oh and the placenta is anterior, but he likes to kick low so I can feel the kicks.

This u/s was an HOUR and a HALF long... O-M-G I have never had such a long ultrasound LOL He is like me, wants to be on his belly or side (facing away from the u/s person) and I guess this does not make for the best angles. I told my hubby the u/s pics looks like how he sleeps on an airplane LOL

Congratulations on being more than halfway through! You are going to deliver earlier too it sounds. Kind of nice we don't have to bear suspense any longer than is needed.

Yep, the peri said I'll get the steroid injections and there is no point is waiting for something to make us have to deliver if I can get that far.
