Level II Ultrasound

27 May

We had our level II ultrasound and meeting with the genetic counselor today.

STILL a boy! =)

And they found no indications of any issues!! Woooo Hooo!!

They did suggest that we do the quad screen – we passed on this with the girls. We are going to do it, but since the ultrasound came back perfect I’m going to try not to worry about any results we get from that.

I also declined the amnio today but we agreed that I would have one done at 34 weeks. I know two people who lost their babies after having an amnio and since I wouldn’t terminate anyway, I’m going to wait until the baby is viable. They told me that doing it after 34 weeks would increase my risk of preterm labor – I said that was fine. I have done preemie. I’d much rather have a preemie at 34 weeks than lose the baby at 16.

And we are to have a fetal cardiac echo at 22 weeks.

I think that’s about it. 😉


We leave for Hawaii in 1.5 days and I have yet to pack! I have the suitcases out, but we had a lazy day on Monday (which was supposed to be the packing day) and now I’m behind at work and have a midterm tomorrow. I have no idea when I’m going to get this done.

Oh, and does anyone have any tips on getting upgraded to first class? I called the other day and asked if I could purchase an upgrade and I was told that I would have to buy a whole other ticket!? That doesn’t sound right to me.

    Yay for the good news on the ultrasound! I’m with ya on the amnio scaring the bejeezers out of you. I’m sure everytyhing will go fine at 34 weeks.

    YAY for Hawaii! Which island are you going to?

    B and I upgraded once, but we did it when we got there…they had 2 first class seats left, so they were like $50 extra. I’ve heard of them being quite a bit more at times.

    Good luck & have fun! Park your ass on the beach and don’t get up…that’s an order! I hope to see cute Evy & Len beach pics!

    Yay! Your little man is doing great, that is so wonderful to hear. I am so glad this pregnancy is going better than the roller coaster you had with the girls. You totally don’t need that stress right now.

    Yay for HAWAII!!! You are going to have such an awesome time. 🙂

    Great news about your US. All sounds wonderful, including Hawaii. I’m green with envy and hope to see pics.
    Good luck on the upgrade.

    No tips for getting upgraded other than being super sweet and showing off those babies! I’ll bet a little Evy & Len love won’t hurt.

    Have fun in Hawaii! I’ve never been and I’m totally jealous 😛 Enjoy!
