NT Scan

My appointment went well - saw the baby and heard the heartbeat some more (HB was 168) - (the Tech knows how much the heartbeat calms my nerves so she always turns the speakers on for me for a few minutes to hear while she is getting things situated). The ultrasound went great, the tech does not think there is anything to "worry about", All measurements were under or around 1.5mm. they took more blood for a chromosomal genetic testing. Those results should be back in 14 days. My Dr did state that I will be coming off my Me.tfo.rm.in, Pre.dn.iso.ne, and Pro.me.tr.ium
after the next week. She will then do a sugar test after I have been off Met for a week.

I feel VERY confident that everything is fine. The baby DID NOT want an ultrasound today. The baby was moving and jumping and swinging its arms and kicking to get away from the poking and prodding... the tech and i were both nudging the baby to try and get the baby to move. She was trying to see if we could see the sex but no cooperation from the lil thing.

Eric swears it's a girl .. because it was all feisty and stubborn. The baby did not like us poking trying to get s/he to move. It was fun to poke the stomach and watch the baby kick or punch back. .. The tech said she "thought" she saw boy parts at one time but then she says she looked again and couldn't see anything .. she tried and tried to find "boy parts" but could never get them to show up . We tried with me rolled on my side and all but O'well ... more waiting Here is a new pic (it's not that great because baby was very active today)

"Not that great" my ass!! That's a beautiful picture! (I swear she is sucking her thumb!)

I am so glad that the appointment went so well! Even if Mini Vann didn't want to cooperate. That had to be one of the most beautiful things to see the baby "playing" back...[insert loving sigh]

So when's you're next scan (since I'm an addict and all)?

Amazing how quickly it goes from a blob-like thing to an actual baby. Gah. And that's as great a picture as anything I've seen!

The baby is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

All three of my boys were fisty and stubborn, especially my first born! I swore he was a girl until he came out and the DR announced "It's a Boy!!" I thought "what? noooo.... I want a girl!" LOL...

The other two I knew were boys because we had aminos and they took every chance the could get to show off their boy parts on the ultrasounds... LOL..

Anyway... Congrats on your pregnancy!! We are starting our journy for #4 ... our last!

Very very cool!

Diana said...

YAY for such a great appt!!!!!

little side note, you might want to re-scan the pic and remove your name. There are some sickos out there and with this being on the internet well, it just might be better to not have your full name and clinic on there.
