Hiccups!

Something wonderful happened today!! Carleigh had the hiccups! And not only once-but twice!! This is the first time she has ever done it! I first noticed it sitting at work when I was processing a scan I had just completed. I felt her moving and at first I thought it was just the regular old movement but then she just kept doing it over and over and then it dawned on me.......HICCUPS!!!! I was soooo excited that I just had to share it with someone and Lindsey wasn't in the room at the time so I went down the hall and shared with the gals in Cardio. The fact that she had the hiccups was just so encouraging to me.

Before lunch Lindsey and I went back to Ultrasound and Kylee scanned me. Of course Carleigh was a little wiggle worm and had to have those arms up by her head but we still got some good pics of her face. And she got the hiccups while Kylee was scanning me! It was so awesome to see her little body jump with every hiccup. Carleigh was also sticking out her tongue and it was cute. I asked Kylee to measure Carleigh since at my last appointment I was measuring around 4 weeks behind. She measure her femur length (FL) and that was around 32 weeks, which is great! Next she did her abdominal circumference (AC) and that measured around 28-29 weeks, which is not so great. That area is measuring behind and that concerns me. I plan on mentioning it to Dr. Fauley my next appointment. So please pray that this area catches up!! Of course we couldn't get any head/brain measurements because it wouldn't be accurate at all. Good news too is that my fluid levels look good. No poly!

Here are some pictures from today:

I love that! Hiccups are adorable! Baby hiccups anyway. You are so lucky to be able to get all those ultrasounds! I think I want to work in a hospital JUST for that reason! I hope that her measurements catch up! She is always in our prayers!
