What to expect at the 20 week ultrasound.

This passed Saturday we had our 20 week ultrasound now some of you first timers may not know what that means but it’s a big step in the pregnancy. Up till now all your ultrasounds were short, sweet, and to the point. Mainly they are just checking the heartbeat and position of your little peanut.

But the 20 week ultrasound is where they take lots of pictures of your peanut’s heart, kidneys, spine, umbilical chord, and you also can find out the gender if you so desire!

The week leading up to the ultrasound I was a nervous wreck, questioning everything I had done wrong despite the doctor saying everything looks great and that everything was looking great and right on schedule. Walking into the ultrasound I had no idea what to expect I was laying there thinking something was wrong cause the tech wasn’t saying anything just taking picture after picture. When in reality this is completely normal. They have so many pictures to take that the moment they get a shot they take it and don’t really discuss anything with you tim the end.

So if you have your ultrasound coming up don’t fret. If you can feel your baby moving and you don’t have any cramping or spotting everything should be fine. The more you worry the more stress you put on your little one.
