12w4d NT Scan

We had our NT scan today, and everything looked good! The moment the tech began the ultrasound and we saw the baby, Greg jumped out of his seat and said, "Look at that thing!"

The baby was moving around and even waved at us, (it was closing and opening its hands). So cute. The tech had a hard time getting a good view of the back of its neck at first. The baby was not in the right position, so she had me use the restroom and wait a bit. When she looked again, she laughed and said, "Now the baby is standing on its head!" So, she still couldn't get a good look at it. Then I coughed, and apologized, and she said, "That's good!" I laughed and told her, "I can cough as much as you want me too!" She told me to let out a few big huge coughs, "to get the baby ornery," and it finally moved to a good position. (Greg then said, "I wonder how ornery it gets when you use your vest!")

Oh, and here's a sliver lining to having CF - the doctor, (not my regular OB), mentioned that my OB will probably want me to have more frequent ultrasounds than normal, possibly as often as once a month! He told me to ask her about this at my 14 week appointment. So, I will most likely get to see my sweetie pie a bunch.

Here is a picture of the babe. You can see one of its arms sticking up from behind its head.
