11 weeks, 5 days prenatal visit with NT Scan

Aug 13, 2009 - 0 comments

I went to the doctors today for a follow-up visit from last week's gushing of brown blood.  Doctor said that the clot has passed and the previa is almost gone - THANK GOD!!!  I took my mother in law with me so she can see baby and hear heartbeat.  The heartbeat was 146 bpm (a lot less than other times, but the tech said it is perfectly normal).  

The tech started doing the NT Scan, but of course, the little one wasnt cooperating.  After a trip to the bathroom, and a few punces on my stomach, the little one cooperated enough JUST to get the measurements.  NT Scan came back negative.  1 in 8000 chance of down syndrome.  

Tech said that she THINKS she saw something between the legs, so she is giving me 65% chance of boy.  I don't care either way, but for my husbands family, losing his brother and father within months of each other, having a boy and naming him after both, would be incredible.

IU am just ecstatic that we are in a much better position today than last week.
