38 Weeks Tomorrow

We had an utlrasound today and I am proud to announce that we had no issues. Matt was on his best behavior and it all went very smooth. It was exciting for us to see how much bigger our baby was this time compared to our first one at 20 weeks. We could see the lips, nose and eyes as well as a chubby little arm and a scrunched up knee. The heart was beating perfectly which was also really neat to see and when they changed the view we could see the ribs and skeletal system. The only disappointing thing is that the technician didn't tell me ANYTHING. I asked her if the baby looked like it had dropped and she said she couldn't tell and I asked her if the baby looked big and she said that would all be in the report they send to our OB. I guess the technicians are told not to say anything at all, it all goes in a report that is sent to our doctor. Its kinda nerve racking though because they stare at the screen the entire time they are checking things and they don't say anything at all to you until the end when they show you some of the body parts. Luckily we don't have to wait too long to hear the results since we are back at the OB on Monday.
