Big Ultrasound

We had our "Big" Ultrasound (aka Anatomy Scan) on Friday. We had an enormous argument the night before that carried over into that morning, so the whole thing was pretty much doomed from the start. The ultrasound was kind of inconclusive because the baby was sitting breech on my cervix like a buddha and would not move even when I rolled over, when I poked my belly, when I got up to go to the bathroom, nothing. So the tech ended up not getting a good look at the tailbone end of the spine, part of the heart, and of course the genitals.

She said she would guess the baby was a girl because she could see what looked like a vulva, but without movement from the baby it was also possible that it was a scrotum with a penis tucked away on the belly or somewhere that we couldn't see.

Because they need more pictures of the spine and heart, we have another ultrasound scheduled for March 5th. I am so tired of having ultrasounds. I feel like we're frying our baby. Ugh.

But I guess the other parts all looked good. At least no one mentioned anything to us. I guess someone will call if something comes up.

From 14w to 18w2d, I gained exactly ONE pound. How is this possible? Is the kid even GROWING?
