Today was our second Level 2 ultrasound on Baby Girl Leino. She had herself completely balled up for most of the sonogram with hands hiding her face – much like her older brother. At least the Leino kids are consistent! Our sonogram technician was incredibly thorough, explaining everything he was looking at as he went. When the exam first began, she had her legs properly crossed at the ankles. Jordan was so proud, saying “That’s my girl!” He’s going to be an incredible father.
Our sonogram tech spent most of his time getting a good look at her brain and heart. Once he finally had a good view of her heart, Jordan and I felt a weight lifted as we saw four perfectly-formed chambers pumping away. No signs of cardiac defects! Praise the Lord! He spent an hour measuring all her bones and organs while trying very hard to get a good 4D view of her face. The doctor then came back to review the ultrasound findings with us. Thankfully, no structural anomalies were found. Our darling currently measures two days ahead of schedule, while her belly measures a full week ahead. She’s certainly been eating well. We have our third Level 2 in May at 30 weeks gestation for another look at all her organs, bones, and growth. We’re hoping that she’ll cooperate with us for a good picture then.
Its truly a blessing to receive such a good report as it was at this point with Isaac when we first learned of his cardiac defects. Thank you all for your prayers today. God has been faithful in answering them with a loving “yes”.
