Thumbs up Another ultrasound today ~ EEEK!!!

I am 27 weeks, 5 days pregnant and going in for another ultrasound today. I am so nervous!!

My first pregnancy was great, I was 16 and very healthy. I delievered a 9 lb 13 ozs. baby naturally with no problem and only a couple hours of labor. #2 came along 7 1/2 l-o-n-g years later. That pregnancy was horrid from the get go. I had IUGR and she stopped growing, they were so worried and suggested I teminate the pregnancy (no way man). I was told the baby would have various health problems depending on what didn't get developed. I also had toxoplasmosis and toxemia along with being borderline gestational diabetic. They induced my 3 weeks early because the baby was under distress and needed out. I delivered a healthy 6 lb 15 oz baby after a not so swell labor and delivery. This time around everything has been great. My one hour GTT was perfect, the ultrasounds have showed adequate growth and development. I have been eating great and walking regularly to stay active. I have an ultrasound today to re check development and I am scared to death. With my last one it started at 18 weeks and just went bad from there. I can feel this baby (as we speak) and couldn't feel Madison so that is a plus. But why am I so scared? I am normally okay until it comes to a doc. visit or testing. Maybe it is because last time I got bad news everytime I got results. I just had to get this off my chest to someone, dh understands but he too gets scared so I don't want to burden him with more worry.

On another (not so imprortant) note I keep having dreams that they say it's a boy when I have already been told it's a girl. I have girlie everything so that would be a pain (again if the baby is healthy that is al that really matters).

Okay, need to go bake cookies and feel better.

You're concerned because it's your baby! Just like everyone says not to worry when they're not in utero, but you do. It's exciting to get to see "her", anyway!! I would take your good pregnancy as a great sign this time!
LOL, when I was pregnant with my son I didn't have a single baby dream until AFTER we found out he was a boy, and in the dreams he wasn't always a boy, LOL.
Good luck! I'm sure everything will be fine and you'll get lots of adorable pics of your little girl!

My ds2 was 100% for sure a girl from ultrasounds. They said there were girl parts. I was crushed because I was SOOO sure he was a boy. Anyhow, turns out she is 100% a BOY
