First Trimester Screening & Results

Nov 02, 2011 - 0 comments

Had screening today for Downs and Trisomy 18.

When we got there we met the ultrasound tech. He was really nice and got started right away. It took him just a second to get the baby on the screen and then, there our baby was! We were so excited to see our little jelly bean...who actually looked less like a bean and more like a baby. We heard the heartbeat at a strong 165 bpm.

The tech measured the baby and it was just measuring a day young which is fine. Baby is thriving well! The tech measured the liquid behind the baby's neck and said that the fluid there was within the normal range.

After the tech was done with his portion, Dr. Crisan came in. She repeated the scan and got our little one to move around. At first we thought it was just the machine but she stopped moving the wand and we saw our baby and it looked like he/she was dancing! It's the cutest thing I have ever seen! Only disappointing part was that it wasn't captured on the DVD :(

After she was done with looking at our baby, she said that she could give us a guess as to the sex. She warned that it was just a guess and that we shouldn't go pick out paint colors or clothes just yet. So, by her educated guess, she said she thinks....It's A Girl....BUT we can't be sure just yet not until the anatomy scan...

No matter who is in there, we'll be excited
