And all went very well. We saw an excellent MFM so we felt really impressed with his skill and knowledge base and he and his staff were really awesome. We will go back on May 10th for the anatomy scan.

He said baby does not have downs syndrome and that he could see 5 fingers. He took extra time to look at the heart since we know someone whose son had a heart defect detected before birth and has since had three surgeries and we wanted to double check and know in advance if there would be any issues. He said everything looked great and that at the 18 week scan he will be able to check further.

He said we can get excited because I will not be miscarrying this baby. Which seemed a little bold to say, but what I think he meant was just that baby is fine and he doesn't expect me to lose this one for any genetic issues, etc. We do realize things can happen, but it felt good to have someone say that to us after two recent losses.

Oh and this doctor is really good at giving gender guesses at the NT scan but the little one had his or her legs crossed so he said he wouldn't be able to really tell me anything concrete and so he didn't want to really "guess".

And much to my surprise we did get the materniT21 test done, so we will get the results by April 12th. Hopefully we will get a negative result and find out what this little bean's gender is!

We got a bunch of pictures and I was planning on posting one or two but I think DH has them at home cause they aren't in my purse. Below is a pic from my ultrasound last Tuesday that I had with my obgyn at my 12 week appt.

yay for a great appointment! adorable baby

I can't believe we are already so close to finding out what these little beans are! I'm sure you'll let us know on April 12th what it is-- can't wait!
