Well first of all I just wanted to say thanks for everyone's positive feed back on my last post. Brad thinks that I had to much information on there. I was not trying to put my woes out there just trying to see if anyone else had been in my shoes and to get my feelings out. I blog to let my family and friends know what is going on and to express my feelings.
Well we went for our ultra sound appointment yesterday. Simply amazing! we first had to have a counseling session the lady went over my test scores and what they meant. She just talked to us about what they were going to look for and what our options were. She was very nice! We then went back for the ultra sound where I must say the ultra sound tec was very nice also! She went through everything and showed us what she was looking for. The bridge of the nose...good, the bladder and kidneys....good, the heart....good, the back of the neck...no extra fat or skin built up, spine....good, upper lip... looked good.
It was just amazing to see baby and how much it had grown in three weeks (my last ultra sound). She said baby was measuring 9 oz. and 19weeks 3 days so a whole week sooner then my due date. Baby is very active all over the place it was a game of chase:) Heart beat was good in the 140's.
We then met with the doctor who I must say had a firm hand shake and was very serious! She said baby's chances very downs went from 1 in 144 to a 1 in 244. She said that we would know for sure if I would do an amnio. Tears choked me up and I was speechless all I could do was look at Brad (he was speechless to) I told her I would not do it I was not going to take an unnecessary risk. She also said the only thing the amnio would do was confirm it, it would not tell us the severity of it so why would I want to do that? I just told her that it didn't matter one way or the other we were going to love this baby no matter what! My main concern is that the heart was going to be off and it looked good. I go back in 10 weeks just to see how things are going. With that thanks everyone for your love and support!
