I've been meaning to blog about this for about a week now, so I guess since I have the time I should go ahead and do it. Last Tues we had another OB appointment. I'm somewhere between 17 or 18wks - it all depends on if we go with the due date determined by the first day of my last period, or the due date based on the first u/s that we had when I was around 8+wks (last period dating) which showed baby to be only 7wks (which we now know is somewhat inaccurate because it's based on the overall length of baby). Anyway they're about 1-1/2 weeks different, so in the end, it probably doesn't really matter a whole lot, but anyway...
We had scheduled another u/s to see if this little one is a boy or a girl. With Livvy we went into delivery with two names, a boy name and a girl name. With the next two, we found out what we were having during the 20wk u/s and then went into delivery with a pretty good idea of what we were going to name them. This time around this little one is getting named right away, which we will share - we want to "know" this little one as much as we can in the time that we have...and we want you to know him or her too.
Unfortunately this little one is, well, little. Too little to tell. According to the measurements of the long bones, baby is 14wks...so three weeks behind. We don't know if this poor growth is indicative of not carrying to term or just having a small baby. So many unknowns. We have another u/s scheduled for Feb 16th. Hopefully they'll be able to tell us then what we're having.
Until then, here are some pictures of "Little's" little feet, hand and leg.
