I saw my regular OB this morning and I asked him about the results of the first trimester screening and he said that my numbers were 1/3000 of having a baby with a chromosomal issue which he was great. I liked hearing the number instead of just being in the normal range. I don't know why the nurse didn't tell me that the other day. he did another ultrasound and baby was measuring 5 days ahead so he said that he wanted to keep the due date the same which was fine with me. he tried to get a potty shot but baby wouldn't cooperate. Baby was moving all over the place. It took him a minute to get the heart rate which of course scared me but he said he could hear baby kicking so he knew baby was ok.

Here is my little one.

Aw what sweet photos. It's always scary when they can't find the heartbeat right away. I'm glad he was able to reassure you though that he could hear baby moving.
Your odds sound really great on the blood test!

Cool! I'm on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to find out
Do you have any feelings on what baby might be? (Can't remember if I asked already). I know you refer to baby as "little guy". Are you thinking possibly another baby boy? Eeeee!!!

Awesome news!!! I knew your odds would be in the thousands, lol. There is a weird thing I heard here on the boards, in the beginning of my DDC about the MarterniT21 results showing a "boy" result......if you have ever had a boy before, then there is a chance that the baby could be a girl, because you carry around your previous son's dna...of course I heard this right around my test results stage and freaked, cause I wanted a boy and I have already had 4 of them, lol. But both u/s's after confirmed all boy as well. Like I said, its a small chance......I never researched it!

Joy my dr said at 10 weeks that it did look like a boy but then last week at my NT Scan she said that it was just too early to tell at this point. I think my dr was looking at the angle of the nub. Today you just couldn't see anything. I guess baby had it's legs crossed.

Lori I may look into that. I would hate to be told it was a boy and then do some shopping only to find out later that it was a girl. I have my anatomy scan on Oct 3 so if it is a boy I may just wait until after that day to do much shopping.
