* Creepy ultrasound photos and ridiculous pants photos are after the jump.
Today was our 12 week NT scan. I am feeling more pregnant lately which delights me. It is uncomfortable to lay on my belly now and I feel some pulling and slight discomfort occasionally in my belly from crowding. The peeing is also out of control. It actually HURTS when I wait too long to go and then when I sit down just this tiny little bit comes out and I’m all like “What the hell, bladder?” It gives me a slight appreciation for the discomfort little Yum Yum has been dealing with for the past few weeks/months!
The NT Scan went really well. The technician was great and told me what she saw as she went. Chicken has a rather large nasal bone, meaning he is ABSOLUTELY ours (we have “pronounced beaks”) and the fluid behind his neck was measuring way less then one which is excellent. We opted to do the regular blood testing to determine our risk factors. Those results should come back in about a week.
We also saw tiny little feet with tiny little toes all ready to be the hiking, running, biking buddy I have been dreaming of for so long. I had to choke back tears when I saw the feet. I love them so much!
In other news, my new maternity pants came in and they are DREADFUL! Y’all, someone needs to invent a line of “training maternity” pants. You know, some pants for when you are not big enough for these ridiculous things but just big enough to be outgrowing your bottoms. They should not have buttons but NOT have some retarded panel that nearly covers your boobs.
I ordered these pants from Loft and they were not cheap. They were also advertised as having a “demi panel.” Either this was a mistype or their idea of demi is just terrifying. I would hate to see their “full” panel pants! I might be able to use the full panel as a hood, too. BONUS!
So without further ado, creepy ultrasound photos and ugly pants pictures after the jump!
And now some pants photos. Because we are dying to see a scrawny pregnant lady try on maternity pants, right?
