Baby Girl Update

I had my appointment today with the perinatologist. Overall it was a very good appointment. It looks like the cyst is gone, YAY! Since the baby had the cyst, it still puts me at an increased risk for Trisomy 18 and Downs Syndrome. My risk for Trisomy 18 is 1:1800 and my risk for Downs is 1:480. According to the doctor these are pretty good odds and nothing that I should stress over. He didn't find any other markers on the baby for either of these disorders. He does want me to be monitored every 4 weeks. So that means I get more ultrasounds. I love getting peeks at my little sweetheart.

Also, I turned 17 weeks today and all the sudden baby girl decides that its time to party in my belly. Prior to today I was felling her maybe once or twice a day. Today I have been feeling some really good movement all day long. I love this part of pregnancy.

Here is a picture of the little lady. She is laying kind of upside down. Her head is towards the bottom and you will see the spine curve up to the left side. It doesn't look like a very good position to be in.
