January 12

Jennie's 9th week ultrasound appointment was yesterday.

Baby XYZ has grown to a whopping 21.4mm (up from 6.5mm at Jennie's last visit). The heart rate of the fetus was 179 beats per minute (doctor wanted it to be between 170 and 200 for healthy development).

Jennie noticed that the ultrasonographer notated "venous lakes" on her chart. The doctor did not raise this as a concern and believes the baby is doing well.

The next ultrasound appointment is currently scheduled for January 26th, but Jennie is going to try to move it up if her OBGYN has availability.

More to come,
Dave T.
