    Documentation:
    • Placental views long / transverse
    • Internal os view in midline with measurement to lower placental edge
    • Deepest Pool of liquor
    • Images of fetal heart

    Detailed fetal morphology protocol ( for increased risk of abnormaliites, or if abnormality found)

      • 4 chamber view
      • Outflow tracts - rvot / lvot
      • 3 vessel view - rvot / aorta / svc and trachea
      • Colour image of "arch" or "arrow view"

      • Identificaation of the digits in each hand with normal positions
      • Views of both ankles showing the orientation of plantar plane of the foot to the tibia/fibula
    Meshell - I won't criticise you cause I feel the same and so does my DH. I just couldn't deal with a special needs child. But I firmly believe that God chooses those who are strong enough to handle special needs.

    Grebbeci - Good Luck today. Hoping all will be well and they have just given you a fright.

I have next to know b@@bs normally but I am growing a massive set of milk jugs and they are so heavy and uncomfortable so I am bra shoppig tomorrow.
    I am trying to find some black maxi dresses like just the ones that are tank top but down to ankle to wear with cute blazers and stuff I am all about comfort. Do you think I can find one anywhere. I have a number of them at home but I have had them for a while and they are a little worn I need some new ones now. I think I am letting off some serious preg pheromones or however you smell it. I had sushi for lunch yesterday ( I know I shouldnt but its yum and its a really nice place I go) this baby was in a high chair next to me and he wouldnt stop touching me and smiling at me and trying to hold my arm. Also all my neices and nephews are all over me like smothering me. I think they all know like a 6th sense. Also I dont know how many times babies have come up in my work place in the last few weeks or how many times I have been asked if I am preg? I am definitely letting off some vibes unintentionally.
    That's so cute - preggo vibes

    I'm the same I'm slender build and quite athletic although I have given up the gym for now and my stomach is just huge from all this medication and I am just so bloated. If I was to keep wearing my normal clothes for sure people would start asking that's why I need to get under the radar asap lol! I'm the same with boobs too - usually they are non existent and now they are looking great lol!!!

    Lillyponds what great info - thanks for that.

    I agree with you on the downs thing - I believe that God chooses those who he believes are strong enough to handle these things - just like he chose us because he knows we are strong enough to handle IVF

    Couldn't agree with your more SL. I believe he has a plan for us all.

    Broomdyke - Your about 19 weeks when your morph scan is done. I booked mine when we paid for our NT scan yesterday.

    Meshell - I believe that children do have a sixth sense so to speak and not always with just pregnancy. I've found if a child doesn't like someone there is usually a very good reason why. So I always listen to them if they don't like someone.

    SL - That's exactly what we think with the Downs. If we have gone through all of this to have a downs baby then it must be meant to be.

    Appointment went fine today. Dr mentioned that whilst low PAPP-A was a marker for Downs that none of her patients had every had a +ve amnio or downs birth after only showing Papp-A as a marker. She is a little more cautious of the other implications though, my PAPP-A was 0.29 when it's meant to be at least over one and it can lead to complications such as placental problems, blood pressure problems, pre-eclampsia and bubs not growing properly. So I am on low dose aspirin (well it was nice to be medication free for almost a week), and will have more regular scans after week 28 and have strict instructions to watch my diet as she doesn't want me putting on ANY weight in the pregnancy. (I have been a bit overweight since TTC).

    DH has been given strict instructions to remove all junk food from the house and to never give in to any junk food cravings.

    Well that's great news hun so looks like the problems that may occur, of there are any, will be to do with you and the actual last trimester and birth. Good that your taking aspirin (you know this lady I know was having trouble conceiving and had a healthy baby just from taking aspirin)??!! Anyway you will just have to eat extra well but great news in general I think - how do you feel??xx
