100th post

I've been kinda holding off posting too much b/c I wanted my 100th post to be somewhat special.

I had my big u/s appointment today. First off was weight and blood pressure. Weight was up about a pound or so. BP was down to around 107/75 or so. I forget exactly, but it was lower than normal. Then we went in for the actual u/s. We had brought in a video tape to record it, but the VCR was broken so we didn't get to do that. The nurse measured the abdomen, the head, and the femur. I didn't get the actual measurements, but everything is normal. The doc came in and let me know that the CF and spina bifida screenings I had done on the last visit were negative. Then he did the scan again. The only real problem was that placenta was in the back and they couldn't tell exactly how far down it went. If it goes far enough that it covers the top of the cervix, it can lead to vaginal bleeding and probably make a Csection necessary. I'll have to have another u/s at around 26-28 weeks to check on it.

Unfortunately, we also didn't get to find out the gender. When we have our next u/s, we're also going to have a 3D one. So we're disappointed we didn't find out, but we're glad the baby's healthy.

Still Alive!

I just wanted to let everyone know I'm still around. I'm just really busy with work right now. We had a great time in San Antonio over Labor Day, but it's been a lot of work since then. I took my 20 (well 20 1/2) week pic today and will post it soon. I still think I just look fat as opposed to preg, but that's okay. Less than a week till my big U/S. It's Tuesday afternoon. Hopefully, I'll be able to update afterward. It'll be nice to find out the gender, but I'll be happy as long as s/he's healthy.
