I can tell from the blog stats that many of you have been refreshing waiting to hear how things went. I can't tell you how much it means to us that so many of you were praying. We really did feel it. The appointment went well. We were kind of nervous because we had to take the boys with us but it turned out just fine.
The funny part was that the technician kindly did the brain and head measurements first so I could then breathe and get through the rest. She said that everything looked perfectly normal! Then she went on to measure the other things and get a few pictures and peek at the gender. It is a good thing she did he important stuff first because cooperation is not a strong suit for this little one!
This child is proving to have a personality all his/her own. We were not able to get ONE picture of a profile or face. We got one picture and it was of a foot! We also were not able to confirm the gender...you will have to keep guessing! :-) We got the important info though. The baby looks to be about 12 ounces and is doing just fine.
The doctor we met with after the scan said that this was all very good news and very reassuring. He then asked what he could do to make me rest easier. I asked why with Isaac the issues were not found until 37 weeks and he said that one reason is probably that they were not looking for anything and the bigger reason probably was that they have updated technology since then. The scans they do now are more detailed and able to catch things much earlier. He said that we should feel very reassured.
We go back in four weeks for another scan. SO today we are rejoicing and praising our God for the good news we have received. We never know what tomorrow holds, but we are sure that God is good and he is doing a new thing!
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19
