Congratulations, you are now halfway through your pregnancy! You will be having your anatomy/morphology ultrasound about this time to take a close look at your baby’s heart and other vital organs.

During this ultrasound you will be able to see the amount of amniotic fluid surrounding your baby, the blood vessels in the umbilical cord (2 arteries and a vein), take measurements of the abdominal circumference, long bone of the leg and measurements of the head circumference and brain hemispheres. Your sonographer should be able to show you the baby’s boy or girl parts!

Congratulations, you are now halfway through your pregnancy!
