Baby is measuring 8w 4d so he gave me a final due date of Nov 8th. He said it won't change anymore heartbeat was 190 and sounded perfect. I haven't had anymore spotting and he feels like all is well and will continue to be so. I'm very excited and DH and my youngest were there. My youngest kept saying "oh mommy...baby" it was very cute. I go back in a month for another u/s and appt. But in between then I have to decide if we are going to do the NT scan again or not. Last time it was such a nerve racking experience I'm not sure we want to put ourselves through it :-/

This is probably a stupid question...but what is an NT scan? Is that the testing for cystic fibrosis and other defects?

Yes it is. We had a bad experience last pregnancy as apparently the spina bifida results came back with a high positive. They left those results on my voicemail, then it took a week to get in for a confirmation u/s and speak with a genetic counselor. All in the meantime we are contacting our insurance about home health care options trying to prepare ourselves, we saw the genetics counselor first who was like Mrs. Doom and Gloom about what to expect then we went in for our u/s only to find out our bean was perfect. They said I probably would have tested positive with my first son too if we had done the testing and that I just might carry the hormone. I know the testing is beneficial for many and we only did it because one of DH's cousins has down syndrome. We wouldn't change anything about our pregnancy if our bean had a concern it's a very individual personal decision for sure. I think a lot of docs push it if you are over a certain age. I'm 26 my OB says the risk is low based on age and family history but it's up to us. It's also very expensive if insurance doesn't pay for it either. We have to get a prior auth # from our insurance to give to the OB by the appt or front $400 out of pocket.

Thanks for that info! I got the literature on the testing at my first appointment and just assumed it was normal testing. I will look into this further....especially since I am 34.

Sounds like you had a great appt! Trust your instincts with the testing. I didn't have it with my first, and don't plan to this time, but it wouldn't change my decision on anything.
