Everything looks fine. Baby is measuring 10 days ahead of LMP. I've been insisting O was 3 days difference. The peri finally agreed to change my EDD officially to 11/1/11. He was very confused about how much bigger the baby is actually measuring. The machine consistently gave 10/25. I asked if this could raise any concerns as far as the baby and he said they normally forgive a week's difference. But that's still a pretty big difference. A week ahead of what I'm almost absolutely sure of?
Anyway, the nuchal fold looks great. I got the blood work and discussed the CVS and Amnio procedures in detail. He said to see what the bloodwork says, then the quad again in 4 weeks and if any flags are raised, he would consider an amnio only because they never confirmed if my last losses were my body or the baby. He is pretty confident my clotting issues played a big part and believes everything will be ok since I'm taking lovenox.
I've been wondering what is going on with my stomach. I was pretty sure what was sticking out is my uterus, but couldn't be sure because it's supposed to be in my pelvic cavity still... Well, the tech confirmed that indeed my uterus is in the middle of my abdomen. Its tipped already, but the pregnancy has flipped it completely. That explains why I'm so big already. When it tightens, you can clearly see it. Kinda freaky looking. LOL!
I guess that's it. I see the OB on May 10th, and I'll have the quad screen in 4 weeks and the next ultrasound with the peri in 5. At that point, so long as everything is normal, I'll be released and only under the care of the OB.
Glad they changed your DD. How exciting that you are moving right along. Sounds like they are watching you very well. Feel free to post on PAL also if you need addditional support. So great to see good updates.
