I asked if I would be getting another u/s in a week or so to check that babe is still growing correctly since it was measuring 7 days behind, they told me that they use a 10 day margin of error so they are keeping my original due date and everything looked fine, there's no reason to worry about the growth...so off to change my tickers again! LOL
Thanks gals! Is the NT scan optional? We don't do those extra testing things so I don't know when my next ultrasound will be...I hope they'l give me one before the 18 week scan though! Still a possibility my DD will be moved back...with my son it was at the gender scan at 18 weeks that they moved his DD back so we'll see what happens! For now I'm just glad to get to be back on track, it sucks having the dates pushed back!!
Yeah the NT scan is optional for most ladies, unless you have risk factors, and then they will push it on you. I didn't have an NT scan, quad screen, or any of that. I was not impressed by the accuracy of those tests and especially the high false positive rates, and my OB did not push it on me at all.
Once we confirmed the heartbeat, I would have not had another u/s until the standard 18-22 wk anatomy scan... except that I had complications, bleeding etc with the SCH so I had a BUNCH of extra ones... but hopefully you won't need that of course!!! So maybe you won't have another u/s until the anatomy scan, if you opt out of the NT scan.
Glad you are changing your ticker back Who the heck knows when these babies will come, anyway?? It's sort of arbitrary anyway!
Ok, yea we won't be doing the NT scan...but I think I will push for another ultrasound...maybe at 12 weeks...I just want to be sure after our loss...I mean we saw and heard the heartbeat with our angel and then one day it just wasn't there...I'd feel a lot better if it was still there at 12 weeks though so I think I'll push for that! My dr is pretty good about doing it if it will help with sanity
No fair (stops feet). My u/s was 7 days off so they changed my date. They won't change it back now despite the fact I'm measuring 4 days ahead. Oh well... baby will come when it's ready either way. Kinda nice to jump ahead a week though.
