It's A ....

... BABY!  Haha!  Tricked ya!  We covered each other's eyes for the wobbly bits...but let me tell you, the temptation was great.  So before I show you the few pics we got, I shall tell you how it went!

Cricket is overall measuring about 2 days behind, but no concern there.  Actually, her head is a couple days ahead of schedule.  Figures.  LOL.  She was face down for all but about 30 seconds, and I even got up and did a little dance and shook the belly.   All kinds of flipping, but all face down or back.  Stubborn little Cricket.

Anyway, 4 heart chambers, all leg and arm bones lookin'  good.  Brain lookin' good.  So is the spine, and all the internal bits are where they ought to be.  We saw feet and hands briefly, but only very briefly.  She DID totally give us a thumb's up at one point.  Loved that!  Heart rate at 141 bpm. 

Only medical concerns:  because of IVF she has a slightly higher risk of congenital heart problems, so on Jan 5 she gets her very own echo cardiogram!  IE: Another ultrasound!!!  Feb 28 we have another follow up u/s to check growth again.  It seems these are IVF benefits at our OB/Perinatal center. 

Of slight concern: my blood flow indicates that I MAY be at risk for high blood pressure and preeclampsia, but I'm not even sweating that unless it happens.  It's a MIGHT.  And it's early.  Right now, all is bueno :)

So....we don't really have prints of the body shots...who knows how they determine that stuff, BUT because she would barely turn and her hand was in the way, they switched to 3D for the face shots we managed briefly at the end, so, without further ado, I present a half-baked Cricket :)

I'm just pickin' my nose, what of it???

Are you guys done pokin' me?  I'm sleepy!  YAWNNNNNN!

Again, SLEEPY!

I'm just gonna hide behind my hand until you GO AWAY and let me chill.  BTW, Mom, you need to feed me already!
