Had my NT u/s today

Hi all,

Just thought I'd share that I had my NT scan today. They told me to be there at 8:30 AM to check in, so I showed up & no receptionist was there. I was sitting in the waiting room till like 8:50 before she finally showed up! But I didn't mind too much cause DH had the kids so I was just enjoying the peace and quiet. Smile

So anyway, it was really awesome to see the baby, since at my 7 week u/s the picture was really crappy and all I could see was a blob. The baby was sleeping when they first put the u/s on, but then he woke up and started doing barrel rolls. I also got to see the baby swallowing and touching its face. Baby was measuring a couple of days behind so they switched my due date back to 11/28.

The NT measurement was 1.4, which sounds pretty good from what I hear, but they wouldn't tell me anything until they get the blood test results also. So anyway, it was a great appointment! After seeing the baby I totally feel like it is a boy, although I was convinced my last two were girls & that turned out completely different!

Have another appointment with my doctor tomorrow, then I think nothing until my big u/s on 6/24.

I have had that happen where the receptionist wasn't on time. I am glad it worked in your favor.

it is funny how your gender feeling changed.

1.4 is great! And, yes, isn't it so fun to really "see" baby..especially since to early to feel yet?! I am totally addicted to my u/s's!!:):)

Congrats on a great appt! I can't wait to see baby again... my mom wants me to do one of those 3D U/S (just for cosmetics, they make you a DVD and take lots of pics and can tell you baby's gender as early as 16 weeks) in about a month to see the sex of the baby, although I'm fine waiting until my normal OB U/S which is around 18-20 weeks.

The dr. appt. was uneventful. Dr. tried to listen to the heartbeat but he couldn't find it, so got another peek on the u/s. Baby was sleeping this time, very cute. Smile
