So I had my perinatologist appt today, which I thought was just going to be initial consult + genetic counseling, but turns out they also planned to do my NT screening u/s....it was SO COOL! It's amazing the amount of detail they showed us (all parts of the baby, organs, just incredible!) - and they paused for a little bit to show us the baby bouncing around too

The hb was 160 and they said the baby is still measuring a few days ahead. Apparently the fluid they were measuring to assess risk was very small (which is good) so the doctor said even without my blood results back that he expects my risk result to be lower than for my age group (yay). We won't get our official results back until after the 2nd blood test which will happen around 16 weeks.

So here are some pics of our little one:




In this one you can see the baby's fingers!



And now for the little surprise - so they tell us that they are virtually certain about the baby's gender (doctor says he's 99% certain )....I was TOTALLY surprised because I thought 12w3d was way too early to tell...but it looks like I'll be joining......

TEAM PINK

We're totally thrilled...and the good news is that even if he's wrong, we're still thrilled! It was just such a relief to see how much the baby has developed and that so far everything looks perfect!!!

You already know how excited I am for you!!!! And those are great pictures. Like I said before, "Go get a siggy!" The pictures would be perfect to use in a creative signature that celebrates your beautiful little baby! Lara, I'm soooo happy for you! I was wondering, and I forgot if I asked...Did you have a gut feeling as to boy/girl? Time to start shopping, Girlie! Say congrats to "Daddy", too!

I can honestly say I had absolutely no feeling one way or the other...if pressed I would have said girl but only b/c i kept hoping that would explain why my m/s has been so awful! With the last pregnancy though i was convinced from very early on it was a boy...boy baby dreams and everything DH is all pleased with himself b/c he predicted a girl - based on nothing but a dream he had!

You know, I hate to be a downer, buy from the online research I've done the genitals of both sexes look virtually identical until 14 weeks. I do think that 12 is too early to tell. So I would say, if you do buy something, keep the receipts, because your girl may suddenly become a boy in a few weeks.

BUT! Congrats on such a great ultrasound! I bet it's a bit of a relief huh?
