Ultrasound for Baby Girl #2

Because both of our girls seem to share a similar history when it comes to ultrasounds, we did not get all the views and measurements that the doctors wanted of our baby girl at our 20 week ultrasound.  As a result, they scheduled another ultrasound to try and get the views they wanted of her face and heart.  So, on July 26th we headed to the doctors for what would be our 4th ultrasound already of this little girl.

We did finally get to see her face, and even got a good picture of her profile.  However, our pictures didn't turn out very well in 3D because the ultrasound tech explained the umbilical cord was right up in front of her face distorting the pictures.  Here is our best picture of her profile though.


And a quick video clip of our 3D ultrasound.

Then, the ultrasound specialist came in and took a look at our girl and asked us to come chat with him.  This is normal.  Then he told us that our girl is already up in the 81st percentile and her head was in the 90th percentile.  This we have learned is not normal, but is normal for our big healthy girls.  We just make healthy baby girls - no weak little babies here!  The doctor figured she was already 2 lbs 6 oz at 26 weeks gestation.  So, he told us that he would be seeing us for another, FIFTH ultrasound in another 6 weeks to see how big she really was getting.

Deja vu!  Exact same thing we had with Ellie around this time - they really are sisters.
