Johns Hopkins

Today Lindsey, Mom, and I made the trek down to Johns Hopkins for the fetal echo cardiogram. The traffic was much lighter than I expected, so that took my anxiety down a notch. We decided to do valet parking rather than trying to find a place to park in the parking garage (most of them had "full" signs out front). So, we made it to the appointment with time to spare!

The ultrasound technician was able to see all 4 chambers of the baby's heart. She looked at the vessels going into the heart and even listened to each valve. It was quite impressive how she could see all the intricacies of his heart. After she got the pictures she needed to evaluate the heart, she took a look around at the rest of the baby. We confirmed that he definitely is a boy! We also got to see his hands, feet, face, and spine again. They gave us a couple more pictures, but they aren't as good as the first set we got.

Anyway, at the end of the visit the doctor came in and told us that his heart looks fine. That's the good news we were hoping for! :)

Mom, Lindsey, and I made a stop at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch on our way home. Let me just say that if you have never tried a piece of Godiva cheesecake, you are missing out on the best dessert on earth!

So glad to hear such great news! The worry never stops, but at least this one can be put aside for the next one! And then he'll be here and worries will be even more intense! LOL!

I've never been to the Cheesecake Factory. Sounds Delish!
