Belated 28 Week U/S Pics and News

Ok, well I figured I better get these up since *tomorrow* we have our 30 week appt... only two weeks behind!

We had a little scary news at the 28 week appointment.  At the very end of our chat with Dr. Rawson, he mentioned he wanted to do another ultrasound because there was a small echogenic area in the heart that they had been watching.  They hadn't said anything because they didn't want to worry us and thought it would shrink in size or disappear.  We did the ultrasound, and the area was still there- and at the same size.  I did my best to take a picture from my own computer screen (we've had most of the ultrasounds recorded for us), when Angie pointed out the spot with her cursor.  When you see it in motion, you can really see the four heart chambers moving, but here you can only see a dot:

We were referred to a Fetal Medicine Specialist, and got an appointment just three days later.  At this appointment, they did an extended ultrasound (it lasted 45 minutes!) and looked at *everything*.  They said she looked completely normal and that the echogenic spot was really nothing to worry about, they see it all the time.  So we haven't been worried.  Hopefully tomorrow will show some shrinkage of that little spot, if we do indeed do another ultrasound!  Anyway, little Isabella Dawn gave us some reassurance that everything was okay, she smiled at us!  It was one of the best ultrasound shots ever!!
