We had our anomaly u/s at 18w6d. All went really well. Seven had really grown and his appearance is starting to shift from alien to more human like. We're starting to see his little features instead of just a skull. They said he would get cuter as he puts on some fat, but he's already cute to me any way you slice it. Seeing his little nose for the first time just made me fall in love with him even more.
Here's some of the photos we received:
None other than I *think* I'm starting to feel Seven move!!! At 18w2d, I felt one thump, maybe a kick, and that was it. At 19w, I felt one flutter. It's not super obvious, but leaves you wondering, was that what I think it was? Then today at 19w1d, I've been feeling flutters all day off and on. Surely that's the baby, or I just have lots of gas.
Every week I take a photo for my own keepsake and think there's no need to post it as I haven't grown any since the previous week... then I compare and my eyes about bug out. I'm going to be a whale if I keep up this speed!

We bought our first major baby item. It's just a crib mattress, but with it came some reality that we could actually have a baby in our house at the end of this. I used my bday money to buy it. I know it was meant to spend on myself, but this was the best gift ever. Thanks Jean & Crew! As Kerry drove me to every baby store in town (that's what I wanted to do for my bday), we kept looking in the backseat and exclaiming, OMG, we got a baby mattress in our car and it's ours! Very surreal!
Thank you hubby for the u/s frame, I love it!!!
