So I had another prenatal appointment today. I guess last vist was a fluke because my BP was good (110/70), there was no protein in my urine this time, and I only gained 3lbs (not bad considering how huge my belly is getting!). I also got the combined results from the NT Scan and the 1st & 2nd trimester screenings. The 3 tests combined have a higher accuracy rate and a lower chance of false positives. My risk of Trisomy 21 (Downs Sydrome) was 1:5500 and my risk of a nural tube defect was 1:41,000.

I asked her about my risk from any of the other Trisomy's (since I'm at risk for having a baby with Trisomy 13) and she said that the risk was so low it's not on the lab report. She said if there was a noted concern for it it would have been mentioned. So I'm estatic over the good news!!! The baby's HB was 140 and nice and strong. I could hear the baby kicking and swimming all over the place.

I can't wait until next week so see this lil' one and find out if it's a boy or a girl!

I'm so glad that your tests came back so wonderfully Nicole!! I've been secretly worried, since I know you are at risk for those things. I've been praying for your bean, and I'm glad s/he's healthy!! woohoo!!

And I'm going to guess boy for you. I'm having a boy, so I think everyone is having one...lol

Dh is hoping for a boy too and the majority of our family and friends think boy too. Of course, my mom, MIL and middle sister are thinking girl. I don't care...I just want a healthy baby.

It's such a huge relief. I know those tests only show an increased risk and don't rule out everything 100% but it's a step in the right direction and with all 3 tests combined, the accuracy rate is very high, and I'll take it. I can't wait until next week!

That's why I'm not even peeking. I could care less as long as it's healthy.
