Appts today - sorta nerve-wracking!

So they moved up my edd again...YAY...I'm for sure having this baby in Dec now. We were starting to wonder. haha That's the first bit of news.

I had two appts today, both my routine o.b. w/ NT scan and my MFM with another NT scan...yeah, I get two of everything b/c both drs want to see for themselves. haha

At my regular o.b. appt the NT scan came out completely normal, baby wasn't being the most cooperative, but no biggie...all was fine. She also said my placenta was on the right side. Blood work for the trisomy stuff was taken too.

At my MFM appt this afternoon the NT scan came out VERY abnormal...like in the 5.something range if I remember correctly, and they said my placenta is anterior. And I have to go back in 2 wks to see what is going on and if anything changes (good-bye more money...my MFM is expensive, even with insurance, and we're on a tight budget!!)

Sooo.....I'm kinda nervous b/c of this afternoon, kinda at peace b/c of the normal one this morning, but at the same time TOTALLY confused!! Are they seriously looking at the same baby?? Is it possible there is one hiding behind the other and they switched places??? How can two US be soooo different??? I mean...even placenta placement? They were looking at baby from the exact same spot too!!

Help???

(And on a cutesie note...I can totally tell that this one has my husbands facial structure...DS has my facial structure, but all of DH's features...this one from the skeletal face shot, definitely has my husband's Biggrin Maybe it'll have my features??? Haha Wishful thinking.)

ETA: And both techs have been doing this for years and years and years and are on the only techs for their respective offices. I can't think that either one would get it so totally wrong.

Shew! That's sounds horribly nerve-wracking!

Hope things are cleared up soon.

Holy moly. I have no idea what to say. No advice to give. I just hope that everything turns out okay! :/ Hang in there darlin! And definitely keep us posted. It's bizarre that they are sooo different. Maybe see a whole new person and get a third opinion??

Thanks for the replies ladies. I'm honestly not quite sure what to think, but I did make a few decisions regarding this:

1) I'm not googling anything!! I did for about 5 min yesterday and then decided that it wouldn't change anything that already "is" and that I didn't need the extra research/info consuming me. And that leads to...

2) If something is indeed wrong, only God can change it, so I'm going to pray about it, ask my close friends to pray about it, and leave it up to Him! I've seen the miraculous occur before in these situations and leave Drs without answers and scratching their heads and I trust Him to do it for me too!

3) I'm going to assume all is well, no matter what! I'll cross those bridges if I come to them, but worry and fear will do me no good in the meantime. I've got a Children's Revival Rally to prepare for, and also a Sunday School teacher conference DH and I are teaching the next day to prepare for. And this all occurs in less than 2 wks. Worry in the meantime: "Ain't Nobody Got Time for That!" Smile

So, since you got to be privy to my first thoughts about this, I thought I'd bring you up to date on my newest decisions! I trust both docs, especially my MFM who saw me through the craziness of DS's pregnancy and sincerely believe all will be well! Nothing that "is" or "isn't" is going to change my love for this child anyway...sooo, why worry???

And now I will step down off of my soap-box of self-encouragement and preaching to the choir. Haha

(I do secretly kinda hope/wish it was twins playing switcharoo for the docs. How much fun would that be??? LOL)
