Tessa’s 31 Week Ultrasound

tessablog2

Yesterday I went in for a 31 Week 5 Day ultrasound. While I am just crazy enough to go in for a bazillion elective ultrasounds to see my baby girls face as often as possible, (for those of you who have asked me “Why so many ultrasounds?!”) these are medically ordered because I may or may not have isoimmunization for anitbody-d. That’s when an RH negative blood type momma (me) and a positive blood type poppa (Jonathan) make a baby with a positive blood type, and momma’s body slowly starts attacking and malnourishing baby (possibly Tessa). There is a shot that give women to prevent this from happening. In extremely rare cases, this shot does not work in some women and the babies are still being attacked. That’s what they think I might have.

I say I may or may not have this isoimmunization problem because the lovely Adventist Health doctors in the Central Valley doesn’t know how to properly read or record medical charts, and have lost my bloodwork  countless times. In the course of my blood work and reading my own charts before they were misplaced, my antibody-d numbers eventually zeroed out. So while I’m fairly positive baby and I are NOT at any risk (I am almost certain the original antbody-d flag was the test picking up traces of the rhogam shot – not an uncommon occurrence, and I had just had the shot prior to the first blood test) I am not complaining over the frequent peeks into my uterus to spy on little miss Tessa, and play it safe.

So far, her levels are completely normal – Tessa is looking happy and healthy! This time it was hard to get a good shot of her because she was wiggling around. She even kicked at the ultrasound wand a couple of times! The movement made it hard to get a non-warbled picture of her face, and she also had the umbilical cord up by her face, blocking her mouth and chin area slightly. Once again (like last time) she was head down and had her foot up over her head. In the above picture you can see the umbilical cord by her face and her foot by her head. It was adorable because she had the hiccups during the ultrasound and you could see her hiccuping on the screen and hear it on the heart monitor. Oh, and look at her little monkey feet! She was gripping the umbilical cord and womb wall with her toes!

I am so very much in love with this little girl! It’s amazing to see how she has grown!! I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the thought that she will be in here in just 8 short weeks. God is so good to me, I have never felt so blessed. When I have my husband AND my daughter in my arms, I might just explode from all the happy! ^_^

    That’s so cool! The gold color makes her all alien-like, though. 😉
