NT Ultrasound

Hi,
I had my nuchal translucency ultrasound to determine the risk for down syndrome. Everything came out great! I just need to wait on the blood results. The baby was so cute. I was surprised to see it moving around so much at 12 weeks 5 days. When we first looked at the ultrasound, I could swear that the baby was staring right back at us even though I know its eyelids are still fused shut. And it became so visibly irritated when the lab tech tried to get it to turn over so she could examine its. It was like "Nope, I found this comfy position and I'm not leaving it." It started kicking its little legs and throwing out its arms in protest as she tried to push it around with the ultrasound wand. I told my husband that it's already showing a stubborn streak, which it obviously gets from him. Anyway, just wanted to share my good news! I wish I could post pics but I have no clue how to do this.

Awww congrats on a great apt!! I loveeeedd that apt with DS. That's the reason I am doing it again! Its amazing to see this little bean, then all of a sudden turn into this little baby, kicking, jumping and dancing around! YAY!! Gets me excited for my apt! I think you can upload pics to photobucket then take the code and paste them into a post. Not sure the exact process though (haven't done it in a while)

It's always great to hear that things look good. I wait to tell most people I know about my pregnancies until I know the results of the nuchal! Congratulations!
