More Tears Today

This time, tears of joy. We had our Level 2 ultrasound today. All looked well. The perinatalogist detected no fetal abnormalities. Of course, not everything can be seen on an ultrasound, but from what she could see, the major organs, structures, etc. look great. We are still scheduled for a fetal echocardiogram next month just to cross our T's. As the doctor explained, right now at 18 weeks, the baby's heart is the size of the tip of your pinkie finger. In another four weeks, it will be the size of a quarter. Clare's heart defects were not detected through the ultrasound, so one more test just to be sure!

We have also officially retired the sweet name of "Jelly Bean" and have moved on. So introducing....
