We had the NT scan and first blood draw for the sequential screening done today!!
And let's just say, Baby was being a pickle!! The little bugger was facing backward, so while the tech was able to check lots of different things (head size, belly size, legs, arms), she said she couldn't get the measurement at the base of the neck unless Baby flipped and faced the other way.
She had me get up and try walking around the room for a bit to see if Baby would shift, but no such luck. She had me roll side to side, I pressed on my stomach, I tried coughing to tense the abdominal muscles, and still Baby would not move! So stubborn!!
So, she left and I got up again and paced the room, did high knees, jumped around a bit, and basically flung upper body from one side to the other to get Baby to move so we could get that one darn measurement.
And finally...success!!! Baby flipped to facing up and the tech got a goooood long look and plenty of measurements. Yay! DH is now convinced we are having a boy because of how stubborn Baby was with getting in the right position, hahaha! He/she did plenty of wiggling (and even seemed to wave once!), but just did not want to move enough for us!
Thanks for reading all that. As a thank you, I'll get the latest u/s pic loaded into a comment (I can't get it to go to my e-mail to attach from the computer, so I need to upload it from my phone, which I can't do here since I've already typed all this up on the computer. :P )
