I had my ‘targeted ultrasound’ at my local clinic yesterday, 3 weeks early so Daddy could be there too. The targeted ultrasound is where they check everything; the thickness of the placenta, the fluid rate of the amniotic fluid through the cord, brain, heart and kidney function. Abdomen size, head size, thigh bone length – they even checked fingers and toes. Oh, and if there was any confusion, he’s definitely a boy. I am still amazed by the technology, and comforted by its ability to provide the peace of mind any mother craves.
