Tomorrow, Monday January 7 is the big Fetal Anatomy Scan. It’s a long ultrasound where they check to make sure the baby has all the parts it needs, like four chambers in the heart, all of the vertebrae in the spine, two arms and legs, etc. It starts at 8:30 a.m., followed by a regular appointment at 10:30 with Dr. Simhan. (He is the high-risk OB/Gyn who is managing my care.) Hopefully, we’ll get the results of the FAS at the 10:30 appointment. I hate to wait! I think the best part about this long ultrasound is that we get a video of it! We’re bringing in a blank tape to record the ultrasound for the duration of the 45 minutes. What a great memento of the pregnancy to have a video of little baby movements in the uterus. Granted, it will be a little grainy (ha!), but it will be awesome to have. I’ll let you know what we find out tomorrow afternoon when I get home.
