My son had surgery yesterday with complications before and after, and leading up to that, we were trying to get everything in order, make arrangements for DS1, etc. I'll be in and out for the next couple of weeks while we get things ready for a convention and moving!
I had my NT scan today. The tech couldn't really see anything on abdominal, so she tried TVU. The baby was very still. She must have felt the panic oozing from every pore because she quickly turned the sound on. Heart rate of 162 while s/he was sleeping! The tech took her time to show me several things, including the arm out to the side. BUT the baby was super stubborn. The tech was using the wand to prod me and I was pushing on my abdomen to get the baby to turn sideways. We finally decided to try abdominal again. The image wasn't great, but good enough to get measurements. Of course, the baby woke up and started moving around a lot. Every time the tech pushed down on my abdomen, the baby swatted, then kicked. Feisty! Hehehehehehe
The nasal bone was prominent, and the nuchal cord measured just 1.3mm. I was weepy and SO relieved. Blood draw didn't go so great. I can barely move my arm. The doctor gave me the go-ahead to use more Miralax. Cross your fingers.
So I regained a little confidence in telling my family. Or, rather, having my son tell my family. Hahahahahaha
I'm absolutely in love, and this was exactly the lift I needed after the last few days! WOOHOO!
