Alan update Mar 22

Our scans and reports came through today!  Dr Shivani says baby and surrogate are both looking great!  Dr Jolly states our heartbeat at 154bpm.  Baby is 139 grams and measuring right on track in gestational age.


Our stomach bubble also looks good (whatever that means)

    That's one gorgeous niece/nephew I've got there.

  3. With that heartbeat in my day before ultrasound it would be a girl for sure. We'll see if the old ways are still right.

  4. Alan, you're looking good, but with that heart rate, the old wives' tale says a girl.

    Always wondered what a stomach bubble did!

  5. Wonder if the stomach bubble is the technical term for everything being in place in the abdomen?? My nephew was born with some of his organs in the unbilical cord, and this was picked up in a scan. He's now 18 and has a wicked scar down his middle - looks like a shark bite!

    And I'm voting boy. In the scan we had at 31 weeks into the pregnancy we had a heart rate of 124 (Taj) and 150 (Alex) - assuming 'Fetus A' was the top baby.

  6. I researched the stomach bubble..so if it is not visible it could mean that there is no stomach, or that the esphogus is not connected, or the organs including stomach are either outside of the abdomen or not developed at all. So, seeing a stomach bubble is good!

  7. Oh, and I also read that the stomach bubble missing can be a sign of disease like Down's Syndrome.
