Mary - I definitely agree with the "No Googling" policy. Dr Google always stresses me out. I think your hubby is right; worrying doesn't change anything and it is not good for you or the baby. I'm glad that you are in a better frame of mind today. (((HUGS)))

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Dr. Google needs to be fired! My goodness there is NEVER any good news on there. When there is other news, it's always like WAY off the subject I was looking for. For instance, if I google - why am I bleeding at 4 weeks pregnant? (yeah, been there done that). Miscarriages pop up (bad news), chemical pregnancies pop up (bad news) and then Spiderman who ran into a wall while eating a hamburger pops up. um...What?? LMAO
Anyway, I'm pulling for you! I hope it's nothing and I'm glad you're doing better today.
I am convinced these tests are designed to scare everyone!
Remember, this is a SCREENING and shows indicators of possiblities. Did you do the bloodwork as well? If so then all of that must be normal (or your doc would have told you!) and you only have to wonder about the neck measurement.
Believe me, I know its hard not to stress. My mantra has been this baby is perfectly healthy until they prove to me its not.
Oh I am so sorry that you recieved this news. I know not worrying is easier said then done... not sure if I could wait that long without stressing too much either. I was told also by my ob that they like to see under 3... technically you are under 3 so this could really be nothing. It is good they are being proactive and watching it but try to stay off googling it and vent to us instead... that is why we are here! To share all our UPs and Downs!! Thinking of you!!
