20 Week Detailed Ultrasound

The other week I experienced one of the longest ultrasounds of my life. Being pregnant with my surprise baby (baby #3) has been completely different than my previous pregnancies.

I am considered to be advanced maternal age otherwise known as “high risk” With this pregnancy it has brought me to worry more than I normally would. There are additional tests, scans, and blood work and ultrasounds.

To be honest, I was fine with the ultrasound because any chance I get to see baby brown, I am all for it. with this appointment however, I was nervous.

yep.

I was nervous because I had to have an appointment with a doctor at the Fetal Medicine Clinic. Basically, I had to go see a specialist for high-risk pregnant women. I booked my appointment a month in advance and it felt like the appointment took forever to finally come. This appointment was for a detailed anatomy scan to check and make sure everything is developing correctly with the baby.

Another thing that made the process more nerve-racking, my husband was out of town for work. He had been at every appointment and I was sad that he was not going to be able to be there with me. I remember texting him before the appointment telling him I was nervous and I wish he was there with me. He sent me a simple test that put me at ease. It read…

You will be fine.

Everyone in the clinic was super nice and accommodating. My ultrasound tech had me laughing so hard because baby brown was not for the shenanigans. It wasn’t until I heard the heartbeat and saw baby brown squirming that my nerves had been put to ease. Baby brown was all over the place! It took a while to capture all the measurement and pictures due to baby brown moving so much. At the time of the ultrasound, baby brown weighed 11oz.

Everything looked good and I received a good report and a big sigh of relief. We even counted all ten fingers and toes. I am still so amazed at how much of a miracle this little one truly is. The doctor recommended that I continued to get “growth” ultrasounds throughout the remainder of the pregnancy. She said this is due to my age and being “high risk”. However, it was funny to me that she mentioned that I am one of her younger patients.

That goes to show that there are many women who are waiting to have babies and it is becoming more normal. The best part about that is…

I have nothing to worry about. 

Check out baby brown’s 3D images below.  I am not going to lie, when I saw this little face on the monitor, I couldn’t help to shed tears of joy.
