It’s time for a baby update!
Yesterday I had my ultrasound and I’m now at 21 weeks. It’s the ultrasound when they check if the baby has all the correct pieces in working orders and It takes quite some time hehe. I’ve been counting the days down to yesterday for a good 2 weeks because I was just so excited and it turned out being a painful experience o.O
My rendez-vous was scheduled for 2:30pm, but I was meeting my doctor nearby at 11am, so I got to the hospital early, at 1:15pm. The clerk at the desk refused to register me because I was “too early” and made we wait an hour before she did, which ended with my meeting the technician at 4:00 instead of 2:30. Let me tell you, by then I was exhausted and cranky, but still very excited to see my baby again!
The technician was a student from Sweden and she was totally confused in her stuff, maybe she was stressed?, and she hurt me like a never thought an ultrasound could hurt. I swear, at some point I was crying and thought I would faint because she applied so much pressure on my belly. Needless to say, I didn’t enjoy my experience.
At week 12, I announced you I was having a boy? Well turns out it’s a girl… maybe LOL
Yup, they still aren’t sure it’s a girl, but the radiologist said she’s 90% sure it’s a baby girl. Which I’m really excited about (either way was great, but now I can hope to share my books with her in a couple of years!) but my husband was disappointed a bit, he really wanted a son, but maybe next time… or maybe the next ultrasound they’ll announce us it’s a boy? Who Knows! lol
We already choose a name, but don’t know yet how we will spell it.
Lilianne, Lillianne, Lilyanne, lilyann, Lily-Ann? So many spelling options, but the last one is my favorite ^^
Here’s a shot of the ultrasound, it’s a terrible shot, but it’s the best I have. You can see her profile and a hand, possibly sucking on her little thumb =)
They discovered there could possibly be a problem with her kidney. One of the elements shouldn’t be wider then 4mm and she’s at exactly 4mm, so they want to check it out again in 11 weeks see if it’ll be ok, if not they’ll have to investigate at birth, but they technician didn’t seem too worried. We’ll have to wait and see.
I’ve been feeling her move for two weeks now, which is amazing! Maybe I’ll change my mind when she starts kicking my in the ribs, but for now I’m in heaven =)
I truly can’t wait to finally see my little angel <3 Due date April 27th!
