Week 19 – Detailed Ultrasound

August 10, 2013

Today is 19 weeks 1 day. We did our detailed u/s (anatomy ultrasound) at the hospital. I heard from other people that their detailed u/s was very long, some even 2 hours, because the baby was moving all the time. So I asked u/s tech if it might take a long time. She said no it will only take 15 minutes. She was right we only spent about 20 minutes in the u/s room. Everything is perfect – she mainly checked the heart beat (141 bpm), kidneys, bladder, limbs, spine, face, etc.

One big thing we were expecting was our baby’s gender – we were curious about it. However, u/s tech said it is the hospital’s policy that she can only check the gender if it’s over 20 weeks. Damn, our OB said we should be able to know the gender today – obviously he didn’t know this policy. How can he know that? Anyway, we will do another u/s in 2 weeks to find out if we are having a boy or girl.

The u/s was at 7:30am – we got up so early this morning that I felt so tired. Plus, the u/s tech pushed my belly so heard that I felt sore. I was feeling so tired the whole day afterwards.
