It's Definitely a BOY!!!!

That was the longest ultrasound I've ever had...the tech did a complete anatomy scan, which took 40 minutes, then came back and asked to take a few more pictures, which took another 10 minutes. After that the doctor came in, another 30 minutes of ultrasound, then he wanted to switch rooms/machines so he could look at something more closely, that lasted another 20 minutes. I guess when you have a child with unexplained disabilities people want to make sure they don't miss anything!

Anyway, the doctor couldn't find anything left of the cyst on the brain, which is great. He did however find a calcification in the abdomen, near the liver, but says it's like the cyst...if there are no other anatomical problems (like clenched fists, short femurs etc.) it means nothing. Anyway, for some reason I find it less concerning when it involves the liver and not the brain. And I have a feeling that if everyone had over an hour and a hlf of ultrasound scrutiny performed on their unborn children there would be a lot more "cysts" and "calcifications" found!

He said everything else about this baby looks perfect, and I'm measuring within a day of my due date. All in all it was a very good day!
