Re: Anatomy Scans Thread

  • My A/S is scheduled for Friday February 3rd! Cannot wait! I'll be exactly 18 weeks..
  • Can't believe we're at this point so soon! Mine is scheduled Feb 10 at 19w2d. Really anxious to find out if everything with baby looks healthy! Good luck to everyone with their scans and with the wait!
  •     
  • Well, I have an ultrasound on Saturday and hope to schedule the A/S at that appointment.  However, I do hope to get a glimpse as to whether we've got a little boy or girl on our hands.  Looking forward to hearing about all you lovely ladies' A/S.  Keep them coming!

  • I'm jealous of all of you! My a/s isn't scheduled until 3/9! And while we already know it's a girl from our NIPT, I am anxious for the a/s to confirm baby is growing and developing as she should be.

  • Is anyone else having a gender reveal party and would anyone else be interested in a thread to share ideas? Yes, pinterest rules, but I'm working on planning my small one for February and I just wondered if anyone else might be too. I'll start it but I don't want to clutter up the board if I'm the only one.  (NOTE: I double posted this in the team thread)

  • Oh man, I'm not 20 weeks until the week of March 5.  I feel so behind some of you ladies, that I had to double-check to make sure I was in the right BMB.  Hope everyone's scans go well.

  • I go Wednesday for mine at 17w3d this is the first anatomy scan I've gone to that I didn't already know the sex of the baby (first 2 kiddos we did a 3D ultrasound at 16 weeks) DH can't go so I'll have them seal sex in an envelope and we will find out together at a later date... not sure when or how yet. I wanted to be team green and dh wasn't onboard so we might do a gender reveal with family. This will be our last baby.

    a lot of OBs do them before 20 weeks. Mine OB's time frame was 18-21 weeks but then they scheduled mine for 17+6

    I had a regular doctor's appointment two days ago with my OB and she surprised me and did my AS yesterday (she specialises in ultrasounds as well and is qualified to do AS).  I was 17 weeks exactly and the baby measured in the normal range (16w5d).  Similar to mjacks16, she couldn't get a really good view of the heart since it was earlier than the typical AS.  We did get to clearly see that it is a little boy that we're having.  She said my placenta was a tad low but it's still normal at this stage so I'm not concerned.

  • My OB will do my AS this time around since the US tech missed something big last time. DS #2 had a two vessel cord which I guess is something they look for during the AS. It puts the baby at a higher risk for organ issues and they usually do more testing before birth. We didn't know until baby was born and thankfully all was fine (he had to have some tests afterwards to confirm) but the ob wants to make sure he's the one doing it this time around. I'm on the late end though. March 10th.

  • I have mine scheduled for Feb 28th at 20 weeks on the dot.  With my first we did it at 20 weeks to the day as well.  It was the coolest thing watching him kick and feel it at the same time.  I was glad I waited until 20 weeks with him, with this one it will be neat to have US from the same time to compare!  We are team green but always look forward to seeing the wee one <3

    Yup. I think it's very rare to be wrong.

  • @rae1 My little one did the same.....she would stay for a picture, but not the gender reveal at 16 weeks...they said wait til 20.  I swear my baby hates photographs.   We had to pace at the down test

  • Awww congratulations! @JAM85

  • Here's baby boy! Have to go back for a second scan due to placenta being in the way and baby hiding his face. His head shape seems rather balloon like

  • So happy for all of you who have already had yours, and for those who decided to find out and those who are team green, that you got to see a happy healthy baby! 
    I am excited for ours and really have no inkling what it is. Although I am leaning towards boy.

  • I had mine on Friday! Just one baby boy measuring a little ahead. Going to follow up with the MFM in 3 weeks to check my placenta and little mans heart again. My placenta is buddied up to my cervix and they need more images of his heart. Everything else looked great! And baby spent a decent amount of time rolled in a ball with his knees to his face.

  • got the results back from my A/S today - placenta previa, so yay for now being high risk and getting a c-section... Other than that, they couldn't get a good look at baby's nasal structure, so I have to go in for some further follow up on all this to see if the techs just couldn't get a good look, or if there are other problems (actually same for the placenta, just in case they looked at it funny). Trying not to freak out yet since we just don't have all the details. Hopefully I'll get in soon and we can go from there.

  • @ThePecks, I'm sorry you have to stress! For what it's worth, 20 weeks is usually when they check for praevia to know if they have to watch it, but a lot of times, it moves up and out of the way by the third trimester. They usually do a recheck of it around 28 weeks. On that front, I wouldn't panic yet, if it's any consolation. It happened to me last pregnancy with my son. They described my uterus as a balloon - picture what happens if you put a piece of tape on the side and then blow it up. The tape moves up the side of the balloon as it expands. The uterus often works the same way. So give it another couple months before you start thinking of it as inevitable.

  • @ThePecks Hopefully the next scan will show something different! When I had my A/S the tech noted the same thing. Then the doctor came in to scan and it was fine. He said it was likely a combination of the look she got and the way I was laying (had my legs crossed and my arm above my head when the tech scanned). Like ktewart said, it can definitely correct itself!

  • thanks guys - yeah like I said, trying to stay calm until we get the next set of diagnostics to say in more detail, but it's like a jynx with how easy my pregnancy has been so far.... *goes to find some wood to knock on*
