*** I actually posted this yesterday, but for whatever reason any post I start new still has to be approved.


Had our CVS this morning and it couldn't have gone better! A phenomenal doctor who was thorough in his explanation about the process even knowing I had previously had one in 2010.

I've had some anxiety about this test --more about the results than the actual procedure. But, when I met with the genetic counselor first and she told me depending on where my placenta was would determine whether the procedure would be abdominally or not. I honestly was hoping for not because I knew what to expect with the other.

The u/s tech checked things out and printed me out some pictures. The baby had a heartrate of 167 prior to the test and was super active flipping all around! After having had a previous missed miscarriage, {before my daughter} I always have some anxiety until I see a beating heart or moving baby. This time was no different! My eyes welled up with tears when I saw the flickering. It's so amazing the emotion that can stir!

The dr. got the sample and went out to check under the microscope to make sure he'd had enough and he did not, so back in he went for more. After the first check, the u/s tech checked the baby's heartbeat and it was 181. After the 2nd it was back at 167 again.

I've just been taking it easy today...no lifting, not much activity and have felt great. No cramping, no spotting.

We should have the initial results within 48 hours and final results within 2 weeks.

We made the decision to do this based on our experience with our daughter in 2010. Our NT scan was normal with her, but blood work came back at 1:16 risk for Downs, so we did the CVS with her. This time we skipped the probability and just went for the diagnostic.

Praying everything is ok this time too! and hoping for the next 48 hours to fly by!!

**** RECEIVED a call this afternoon with initial results: healthy baby with no chromosomal issues!!! We found out the gender, but decided to reveal a little later as this is our last baby and all of my family lives out of town! But we're relieved and excited!!!!

{baby measured at 12weeks 2 days}

Hoping for good results, and hoping that time time flies by. Cute pics!

** My first thought after reading this thread title was, "Why is she still buying HPT from CVS?" lol Mental note to self: Don't read anything on JM until after you have at least one small cup of coffee. **
