@hposs - congratulations and I hope it's smooth sailing from here on.
@Amandale1727- thank god bub is ok and the bleeding is small. Let's hope it goes away soon, I can't imagine how scary that would have been for you.
@Sparklemonkey- yeah to NT results!
AFM - had our NT today and the results were good, low chance...and bub was moving and kicking like crazy, so I'm so so happy. Fetal HB was about 151bpm, measured at 12w3d, so a day behind but all is fine.
NOW the big news is....that experience was the most surreal experience for me! It started with, we did our NT scan at the imaging place at the private hospital we're booked into for the birth. The radiographer came and and practically screamed out my name and asked how things are going. I vaguely remembered her from IVFA as a nurse at another clinic. She has now changed jobs, so I updated her with my news.
THEN whilst she was doing the scan, I remembered that she was preggers in April last year when I did a failed cycle....so we chit chatted about that. And as the scan was coming to an end, she says to me, "are you going to find out the sex of the baby?". We both said "yes"....then I asked her why, can u see it? She replied that she saw it earlier(when she was doing legs etc). So she moves the thing over my tummy to show where the bits were, and as the whole scan was in front if me on a 52inch plasma, before she could say anything, I saw the BITS! As I have had a boy and a girl, I knew what those bits on the screen meant, so I said, "it's a boy isn't it?" She said, "yes it's a boy- it's only an educated guess". But I have never seen baby bits more clearly than this baby's bits, the angle was just right, and he was at the right position.
So there you have it, WE'RE HAVING A BOY!!!!!
THEN if that wasn't enough excitement, the lady that delivered us the news on the blood test, scan and risk based on my age as well.....was the registered head nurse that delivered my firstborn DD over 5 years ago (at same hospital). What a day of coincidences, luck and unexpected good news!!!!
@ELM13- do you want to update the roll call with sex of bub ??? ( or unknown for those not wanting to know).
Attached below is photo of bubs with one of his hands near his face....so so in love!!! (And now really really excited!!! I finally feel pregnant now!!)
