date of ultrasound: february 17, 2014
gestational age: 12 weeks, 2 days
crown to rump measurement: 5.5 cm
gestational age based on measurement: 12 weeks, 1 day (i seem to consistently measure a day behind, which lines up with when i think i ovulated)
due date: august 30th
heart rate: 164 bpm
gender: well the tech said that although it is early, she is about 75% sure it's a boy! we aren't going to start painting the walls blue or anything, but take a look at the u/s pics below and let me know your thoughts.
movement: baby was moving around quite a bit. i even avoided drinking anything sugary before i went so that we could get a good look. sounds like his sister...
highlight of the ultrasound: everything looked good! i really enjoyed the tech saying "i would be VERY surprised if you come back and they tell you it's a girl."
baby at 12 weeks
do you see that little thingymabopper between the legs in the 3d ultrasound? the tech showed me that nub in both 2d and 3d, although it isn't clear in any of the 2d pics she printed. apparently male and female parts are pretty similar at this stage though and it could just be a girl who is "swollen". we'll find out for sure at my anatomy scan on march 31st! (or sooner... but i'll touch on that another day!)
