LONG u/s and legal guardians

Our 19 week U/S went very well. The U/S tech said we have nothing to worry about the sex of the baby was showing, and asked us if we wanted to know, we said no…we behaved ourselves, I thought we would give in…but that is our last u/s so the temptation is gone now…

The U/S took 1.5 hours, she said we have a very active baby, the baby would not stop moving, she was casing it around my tummy with the u/s wand LOL…she put gel on the wand about 8-10 times!!!
Aaron was sitting in the waiting room freaking out, poor Daddy, he thought something was wrong, I did not know the appt would take that long!!

When Aaron came in the room she showed us our very active baby…I felt a few more kicks as well during the u/s

I am feeling more and more kicks as the time goes on, and I am loving it!

I keep getting Aaron to feel and I *think* he felt it…but I am not 100% sure.

Onto other news, I have contacted a lawyer to put it in place that the baby’s legal guardian will be my parents. In case something happens to Aaron and I together, the baby will live with my parents, and we are having it written up that Aaron’s *parents* can’t step in and claim rights.

I saw it!!!

I saw my lower tummy move...I felt a little action and I pulled up my tank top and saw a little punch or kick!!! It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen...
Aaron was outside watching the thunderstorm...hopefully it happens and he can see it....

Best day ever...

*tears* I felt the baby move!
I am not sure if every pregnant woman gets tears in her eyes when they feel the baby move for the 1st time, I know most of my followers are people that have experienced IF…maybe we are more “sappy” when it comes to these moments, maybe not…but it was the most amazing feeling. I keep wanting it to happen again. I felt like a nudge…I ran over to my boss and said “I think I felt the baby move” and she was just as excited as I was…It happened at 12:20 today – Can’t wait to tell hubby

Got the IPS test results

Dr says all is perfect!

Here is the definition of the IPS testing that we have here in Ontario:

Integrated Prenatal Screening (IPS)

This screening test combines measurements from a nuchal translucency ultrasound and two blood tests to estimate the chances of a developing baby having Down syndrome.

The IPS takes into account the measurement of the ultrasound and the level of the proteins and other substances measured in the blood tests. It then adjusts for the woman’s age and gives a numerical estimate of the chance of Down syndrome, such as 1/2000 or 1/8.

In addition, unlike the first trimester screening assessment (FTS) which also screens for Down syndrome, the IPS will determine if there is an increased chance of spina bifida.

Glad to be back

Feels like I have not blogged in forever. Lots has happened…

We went for a week vacation in the RV to Kincardine…had a wonderful time…relaxed and enjoyed the beach! Pictures are on Facebook…
On Wednesday august 4th I went to the OB at Credit Valley, and I really liked him and the practice so we have chose to stick with Credit Valley. The baby kicked the Doppler again, I can’t wait to finally feel the baby move – I have been feeling flutters, more so last week because I was off and relaxing and being at work I am really busy, so I might not feel it as easy.
We have our last u/s, providing everything is going well, on August 16th. Aaron will be coming to that :)

Just found out that apparently Aaron’s “mother” found out we are pregnant – this should be interesting…only a select few in his family knew…and apparently she found out at a party down the street from us…She does not have any friends and we only speak to 2 people on our street, and I know it would not be them telling her…Her loss, not ours…
