Ultrasound #3

I just got back from my third ultrasound for this pregnancy. The tech was able to get some better shots of the heart and she said everything looks really good. They still have to analyze the pictures and write up a report which my doctor will share with me at my appointment next week. But I'm relieved that the heart was all there and functioning normally. The heartrate today was 160 bpm. Also, I got to see the baby sucking it's fingers--so cute! I didn't get any pictures this time around. The tech left so I could have some privacy when I wiped all the goo off but she never came back. Oh, well.

Two things that made me laugh:

1. At one point the tech said, "Let me see if I get a better picture using semen." I was thinking, "Um...isn't that how I got pregnant in the first place?" But it turns out that Siemen is the name of the computer program she was using.

2. Towards the end of my ultrasound I was told, "You know, you have a beautiful cervix." Well, I guess it's good to know what your best features are!

It was great to see the baby again. I can't believe how quickly this pregnancy is going by! I'm over halfway there!

Oh yeah...I guess some of you are wondering if we found out the gender. Well...we did. *grin*


  1. Yea!!! happy boy!!! I am so excited for you!

  2. I found you through Annie. My Sono tech told me I had a great cervix too! :)

  3. Congratulations Jeana! I'm so excited for you guys! Glad to read all is going well!
