My appt.

Feeling kinda queasy right now but just wanted to give an update on how my appointment went.

The doc was nice so I guess I'll be staying with him for the pregnancy. He did an ultrasound but unfortunately the machine was an old one that didn't show that great of a picture. He found the heartbeat but it was hard for me to see myself. The baby was measuring right on track, 7 weeks 0 days so my due date is still going to be 11/28.

Now I'm trying to figure out my plan as far as prenatal testing...I was planning to do the 2 blood tests and the NT scan, but then I will have to miss out on our trip to Ireland next month since DH's cousin's wedding will be during the time I am supposed to get the testing. I would be ok with doing the amnio instead but DH is against that, so we'll have to see what happens.

Anyway, at least I had a good appointment and I'm happy that everything is ok with the baby!

the NT scan can be anywhere between 11 weeks and 13 weeks 6 days. i am going to maui for two weeks in may right when i'd be doing the NT scan but doc said that if i get it in before 13 weeks 6 days that it's ok. when is your trip to ireland? i hope you can go! i was in ireland when i was 8 weeks pg with my son and it was our favorite ireland trip! (dh's family is there)

Good to hear that the appointment went well! I am glad that you liked the doctor.
Do you have to have that testing done? I would much rather go to Ireland instead!!

I'd rather go to Ireland too Smile my doc doesn't really push NT scanning so I didn't have one with DS doubt I will this time either. Totally a personal choice but not unheard of to skip especially to go to IRELAND Smile

I'm for Ireland! What a great opportunity! If you don't plan on terminating your pregnancy I don't see the point of testing (other than to be prepared, I guess).
