Did anyone's baby have their eyes open? The doctor came in my room after I had the anatomy scan done and she took a gander at the baby with the machine. When she did it the baby's eyes opened and she even said "Ah, look at that, she opened her eyes for us". Everything I've read says that the baby's eyes open around 26 weeks. I know it's not always an exact science but I guess I didn't realize they could open their eyes at 18 weeks. And I guess if it was an issue the doctor would have said something. Just curious if anyone else had a similar experience.

Our baby had the eyes open! I thought the same thing as you - that it didn't happen until much later. Everything else was so amazing, but the eyes open honestly freaked me out! (Not my husband though - he thought it was so cool.) Since the anatomy scan, baby has Ben moving a lot more and my husband was even able to feel movement for the first time this week! (22 weeks) Hope everyone is feeling well! :-)
i had my anatomy scan done 2 wks ago. it was a beautiful experience. I think that to me the most amazing thing was to see the baby heart. I'm still in aww to think that we are given the opportunity to carry something so precious inside of us that moves, breathes, has a heart beat ect. i"m in love with my little man
