checking in with baby # 2

So I had my first appointment today at the specialist. It was actually a pretty quick appointment full of ups and downs.

So they did an ultrasound and baby was sooo cute. Great Heart beat 154 and was moving around kept rubbing it's nose with it's hand and then settled on sucking on its thumb. They measured the back of the neck. We didn't want to do any of the genetic testing but she said its standard for them to measure it either way. Said it measured at 1.6 which was perfect. She said my placenta wasn't as low as the other tech had made it sound and that has my uterus grows it would be even further from my cervix.

Now to the bad news She said that I have a spot on my placenta that is bleeding. She said that is what my spotting was from last month and that they will have to keep an eye on it. She said to not google it, and to pretty much not google while pregnant. She said it can cause preterm labor. But it can be a common problem and they would watch it. Also she said they found a cyst on one of my ovaries. That it is small but another thing for them to keep their eye on. She also said I have a pretty good chance of getting Cholostasis again and they will watch for that. Oh and she isn't sure what caused my hemorrhaging after I had Kaiya so they will be watching for that. Why can't I just have a normal uneventful pregnancy.

I asked about finding out the sex. She said It was too early, by my last period date I am 13 weeks 1 day ultrasound measured 12 weeks 5 days. She said the earliest they check is 14 weeks. So I just barely missed it But I have an ultrasound at another place on the 21st so 2 weeks. Then I have a normal ob appointment on march 3rd and then my anatomy scan on the 14th of March.

Holy crap! What are they NOT watching for? :0) I am glad that things are going well and they are checking for everything. I can't wait to hear what you are having.
