20 weeks 3 days and all is good

This morning we went in for the 20 week anatomy scan. All is well. My blood pressue was 112/62. That was a pleasant surprise because while I hadn't been nervous at all the last couple of days, last night I had a horrible dream and then I didn't feel the baby move when I woke up and I almost always feel him first thing in the morning and before bedtime. So, let's just say I was feeling a bit anxious in the waiting room. Fortunately, the worry was for nothing as the doctor said "everything looked wonderful" and she was glad that I'd finally gained a few more pounds (which I found funny because I feel enormous for 20 weeks!) The baby was actually measuring a few days ahead and is currently 75 percentile (about 14 ounces), so the doc said it was no wonder I was feeling like my belly was suddenly a lot bigger. Next appt in 4 weeks is just a regular appt, but 2 weeks after that I get my glucose loading test and they'll do another weight estimation for the baby.

Like his big sister, the Bumblebee wasn't cooperating so well this morning. The tech couldn't get a very good shot of his face, but after some effort she did finally get a pretty good profile shot. We're looking forward to having something to show the Ladybug tonight that actually looks like a baby!

Glad all is well. :)

(you are quite correct, BTW, my insurance, for IVF anyway, is rockin'... for everything else, it sucks. That $40 copay? is for any specialist, which is pretty much any doc I see... my neurologist, etc. The $50 copay for drugs? That's basically all my drugs, and I take 9 different drugs not including the infertility meds, almost none of them generic - my generics still cost me $20 each... the premiums also suck majorly... I gave up really GOOD insurance in order to get the IVF coverage through my employer... fortunately the rest of the family still has the GOOD insurance)
