Screening today

So today I went for the first tri screening. I should know the results in 2-4 days. The baby was measuring 12 weeks 5 days. Right on schedule. She could not tell what the sex was, but he/she was moving all around stretching his/her little limbs. So cute!!! Heart beat was 165bpm. I have pics but they are not that great so no point in sharing. I have an appt to go back to her in May. I hope that I don't have to wait that long before I see the sex of the baby. I won't be happy with that. I am a planner and I need to know :). I hope everyone else is doing well and the babies are all doing well too.

Well, I had my follow up appt today and my OB confirmed that I will not have another ultrasound until I'm in my 20 week. I am so sad!! I have never had to wait so long before knowing the sex. Maybe it's for the best. Two months should go fast. ;(

Boo! I have my nt scan on Friday and after that I won't have another ultrasound until just shy of 19 weeks. Sad if you have some extra money sitting around you could always pay for one at another place? I might this time. We didn't with DD but my mom is desperate to see an ultrasound and I found one that is very family friendly.

Glad to hear all went well.
I didn't think that you could accurately tell the sex until 20 weeks anyway?

With my other five children I knew when I was 14 weeks. I don't want to spend extra money so I will have to wait.
