I have my anatomy scan tomorrow and I am so terrified and excited at the same time. I am getting close to the point at which I lost my daughter (24 weeks), and I am so scared that the u/s will give us bad news. I don't really have any reason to think this, but I can't help worrying. Ugh. Please wish me luck, ladies.

***UPDATE***
Thanks for thinking of me, everyone. Sorry I didn't get to update everyone yesterday. My laptop wouldn't connect to the internet. Anyway, the scan seemed to go well. The baby was measuring right on time and was very active. We also found out the sex. We're having a baby boy! It is just strange that yesterday was such a good day, but today was so terrible. We met with the developmental paediatrician again to discuss Connor's autism diagnosis. She wants to run genetic (chromosomal) tests on Connor to determine if his autism has a genetic component. She told us that it wouldn't affect the treatment for Connor but that it would be important if we decided to have more children because we could have another autistic child. I didn't mention that I was 5 months pregnant, but I've been crying my eyes out for the last couple of hours. I am scared and nervous enough because of the stillbirth, and now I have this to worry about. I can't help feeling depressed when I should be feeling so happy. I feel so badly for both of my boys.

I know how you feel. That is how we felt about the 21 week ultrasound. I lost Roald at 24 weeks but didn't find out til almost 25 weeks and we go on Monday for a level 2 ultrasound at 23 weeks and I am scared ****less.

Our anatomy scan went well last week until the end when we were told she was measuring small like Roald did. But I doubt you guys will get any bad news. I'm sure you will get to see a healthy kicking baby tomorrow!!! I can't remember....you haven't found out the gender yet have you??? That will be so exciting to hear what you're going to have! (I want to know!)

Yay for having a boy!!!!

In my experience, more often than not, pervasive developmental disorders (autism spectrum disorders) are completely random, with no genetic component. Most of the autistic children I have known or worked with had entirely unaffected siblings. I am praying for you that all of the tests will come back negative.

Thanks, girls. They are mailing some lab paperwork to me, and then he will go for his tests. They are taking blood to check his DNA, iron and lead levels.
