So fun! Mine was super quick and we had no complications! Healthy baby girl on the way. They take lots of ultrasound pics and are able to measure the baby to estimate their percentile of weight/height. Our girl was estimated to be weighing in at 15 ounces and in the 46th percentile. I had my appt on week 21 day 3!

They will take lots of ultrasound pics, let you know gender if you want (if you didn’t do the blood test). If you want specific pictures of things they show you, mention it to them. They didn’t take picture of the ribs and backbone until I asked them too…one thought I was being funny when else can you see all of your baby’s ribs and backbone in a “6x4” roughly…picture. ❤️ I will say with my 1st, they called in the dr afterwards because they said there was a small defect shown on his heart and they said 80% of the time it heals up and they’ll just note it down but gave me options for genetic testing etc. I ended up not doing any further testing and he’s almost 4 now and healthy. Chances are this won’t happen, as it didn’t with my daughter, but in case it does, don’t stress or worry. ❤️ you might get a pic of him/her sucking on their thumb or foot or mooning you 😂😍

Sometimes the baby can be positioned weirdly, so don’t be surprised or alarmed if they need you to come back a different day to scan something else.

Overall, mine took about 45 minutes for all the shots, and it was fun to see the little one!

Back sleepers, how did you manage to not sleep on your back later in pregnancy? I keep waking up, conscious that I'm on my back, and roll over on my side, but the cycle repeats because I keep ending up on my back.

I'm only 16 weeks, but I've been trying to train myself to sleep on my side for about a week since I know I'll need to later in pregnany. Not sleeping on my back is way harder than I thought it'd be.
