My fluid is good!

Today we had a girl named Megan going around our department because she is a new hire and Lisa from CT brought her back to our area. I got to talking to Megan and she got hired on to work on Mother Baby Care. She was wearing gray scrubs so I kinda figured that's where she was going to work. So we chatted for a bit and she saw our area and then I took her back to Ultrasound. Bethany and Beth were working today and so I chit-chatted with them for a little bit. They didn't have anything going on so I asked Beth if she could check my fluid levels. I'm worried about the possibility of developing polyhydramnios (excess amniotic fluid) so I figured this could help ease my mind. So Beth and I went into the room and I let Bethany and Megan come in too. The more the merrier! Beth just glancing at my fluid said it looked normal. She measured it later and it indeed was. Whew! What a relief. There was also fluid in Carleigh's stomach and bladder so that is a good sign! I hope that means she is swallowing well. When Beth first started scanning she was actually able to get a picture of Carleigh's profile! Amazing! She has been so stubborn every ultrasound so far that it was just so cool to see it. She usually has her arms all up in her face. You can see her anencephaly pretty well on her profile pic. Beth was able to get a good picture of her face too. It was so precious! And we were able to see her ears! Well, Beth told me it was ears but I couldn't tell very well! Beth converted one of the images into a 3D too. I just love seeing her!!

Here are some of the ultrasound pics (28 1/2 weeks):

She definitely cooperated better this time! I'm glad some of those were labeled. I would have had a hard time! Sometimes I can see US and sometimes I cant. She looks beautiful though!

Holly, Carleigh looks like an angel!! I can't wait to have my ultrasound. It was scheduled for today but, due to us getting snow last night, it has now been rescheduled for next week!! You are so very blessed to have so many friends and family to carry you on this journey. Your friends at work sound wonderful!!

Holly, she looks beautiful. I can see her face really clear in the first one and it brought a tear to my eye.
