Team Pink (20 week update)

We are exactly 20 weeks today.  Our appointment today was for a level 2 ultrasound, a Maternal Fetal Medicine consultation, and a midwife check.  The detail of the level 2 ultrasound was mesmerizing.  I am pretty sure that I saw every bone on Beana's body...every single bone...in absolute clarity.  We looked at the structure and flow of the heart, the aortic arch and the flow through it, the kidneys and bladder - and the arteries around them, several structures within the brain, the spinal column, the nose and lips...everything you can possibly imagine.  I never want to have a level 1 ultrasound again.  There is simply no comparison.  Everything looked great anatomically, so that was quite a relief.  And of course, we found out that I am housing a Beana as opposed to a Beano.  Heart rate was about 140 beats per minute and she was very active.  We will have a follow up with the Maternal Fetal Medicine docs in 4 weeks, as well as another ultrasound and a midwife appointment.  We will be doing ultrasounds every 4 weeks for now to monitor growth.
