At the 20 week appointment we started with the anatomy ultrasound. Everything checked out just fine and we are so thankful for a healthy, active growing baby. They estimated the baby's weight was 10 oz. The heart beat was 156 bpm. The baby was moving around quite a bit making it difficult for the ultrasound tech to get all of her measurements so it was a long scan, but eventually she finished. We asked her to keep the gender a secret and we turned our heads when she reached that part of the scan. I can confirm we know the gender, but I'll be back in another post with that information. After the ultrasound we went back for my monthly appointment. It took all of 5 minutes to get my blood pressure, confirm the baby was healthy and schedule my next appointment.
