Almost 30 weeks and lord I feel terrible, have insomnia, went to bed last night at 9pm, was up again 45 mins later wide awake so settled down to watch a movie, managed to doze from 4am until 7:30am. Then got a nap for an hour while miss 4 was at kindy. Its been 2 weeks since I have had a good nights sleep, DF isn't sleeping in bed with me as his snoring also wakes me up, he refuses to go to the Dr about it (its like sleeping next to a chainsaw). Have heard I can take Panadeine Forte safely so thinking of taking one tonight to knock me out. Just feeling down and sorry for myself lately. On the plus side bub is very active, its rare he's not kicking me or at least stretching! Miss 4 got some big kicks on the weekend and seemed very confused as to what was bumping her, she knows theres a baby there but its her first time being able to feel suck big kicks.

I'm not avoiding you all, I promise! Am waiting on a phone call with FISH results from amnio sometime today.
The procedure itself was easy and stress-free and I had the utmost confidence in the doc performing it. The ultrasound before hand showed, for all intents and purposes, a lovely looking little bub with everything in the right place, so we can only hope the amnio comes back clear of chromosomal problems. I don't want to upset anyone but should the amnio give us an "abnormal" outcome, this is will impact heavily on whether we carry on with the pregnancy. DP and I just aren't in a position to commit to caring for a bub with DS. I hope you don't judge me for saying so...as you can imagine, just the thought of this possibility is quite devastating to say the least as this is a much loved and wanted baby for us.
Anyway...that's getting a bit ahead of myself...have to wait for this phone call first! WAITING! WAITING! WAITING!
On a happier note, it seems this bub is a little boy! Well...the scan gives us about 70% that it is. Needless to say, DP is kinda chuffed his boy swimmers crossed the finish line first! He is a wonderful father and role model to DD and if this was another girl, would be so totally smitten with "his girls", but I think the old fashioned ideal of a son "carrying on the family name" has suddenly dawned on him. He's still keeping a lid on his excitement etc until we know for sure.
I'll definitely be back to let you all the outcome.

Been thinking about you for ages!!
As are in the same boat age, etc wise can I ask what your bloods came back at in relation to DS? You know how they say that you are 1 in XXX chance of having a baby with problems. I only ask (and please if you dont feel comfortable in telling) is that I wonder when do you decide to have the amnio or just take the % factor from the bloods.
I am glad that you are feeling well and everything is looking great so far. Of a mum of 2 little boys I have to say that boys are awesome. They just adore their mummies!

Hi girls I'm back!
It is with great joy and a whole heap of relief that I can let you all know our FISH results show a lovely, healthy little BOY growing in there!
I have always felt good about this pregnancy right from the start so it's awesome to have some confirmation of things going well.
I've finally told my family and they are beyond thrilled for us - so nice to finally have it out in the open.
Michelle I had always anticipated having the amnio simply because I knew my age put me in a high risk bracket and also because the results had a bearing on the pregnancy continuing or not.
My age risk was T21 1:77 T18 1:193 T13 1:602
My adjusted risk was T21 1:54 T18 1:3851 T13 1:4739
My Biometry was Nuchal Translucency = 1.9mm
Free Beta HCG 79.4 IU/L equivalent to 1.989 MoM
PAPP-A 1.670 IU/L equivalent to 0.528MoM
This pregnancy is actually a "failed twin" pregnancy ie at my early 7 week scan there were two sacs with embryos but only one with a heart beat and the other was measuring a week behind with no heart beat. When I got these nuchal results, the doc said she thought it was the failed twin throwing the blood work out.
Gotta get DD in the shower or it'll take another hour to get her to bed!
Oh, and I'll be back to reply to OTHERS later tonight! That's enough ME ME ME!
