My Nuchal Translucency u/s was one of the most surreal experiences of my life.

I know that they are a bit controversial, in that some wouldn't have the test because the results would not change the course of events. For myself and my hubby, the test was covered under our insurance, so while we are ready for whatever comes our way, we weren't willing to pass up a chance to see the little one-to-be!

I'm not really sure what I expected from this scan. Evidently, my mind wasn't 100% firm on what the u/s shows, which I cannot explain...just a stupid moment. I guess I didn't quite grasp that what was on the screen was in real time.

Anyways, while laying there watching that screen and taking in all of the visible parts of this person that I cannot even feel growing inside me, I was shocked to see sudden movement. The baby stretched...a huge, dramatic stretch, with the arms out and head back...right before my eyes! I've never experienced anything like it. Nothing even close. This is so completely real now.

The u/s tech was absolutely incredible and made it such a fun experience. She gave us BUNCHES of pictures (but asked that we hide them until we were out of the office...she smuggled me photos! haha) and answered all of my questions...aside from gender, which couldn't be determined yet. She said that from her end, the readings and measurements look great and that the EDD of 1/11/12 is dead on! WOOT!

Awww what a special moment! Make sure you print what you just wrote to put in the baby book...he or she should know how special your first glimpse of their "life" meant to you!

Thank you, thank you! The hubs says that HE has a "masculine" profile. There is a nasal bone, but I'm not seeing enough of a "profile" to make such judgments. Methinks the man is dreaming!

I think your man is right.......I predict it's a boy too, but because of the nub

What are you hoping for ??? (other than healthy, that's a given)
