I have my u/s and amnio. I am so nervous. I have done a good job of not thinking and not worrying about it, but now that is is almost here I am so nervous. I will just die if there is something wrong with this baby. I have been preparing myself all day for the worst. Like them saying OMG we have never seen such a deformed baby or something like that. I know that wouldn't happen, they would never say that, but I am trying to prepare for the worst and hope for the best, know what I mean? It is hard though. I don't think you can prepare one way or the other....

oh well, think of me tomorrow. Of course I won't have amnio results for 10-14 days but they should be able to tell me based on the u/s if they see any markers....

Oh and strangly enough, I found out I was pregnant again on the 3 month anniversary of losing Cassie, now I am having this test on the 6 month anniversay of losing her. Hopefully that is a sign she is watching over the baby and it will be ok...

I think she is watching out for you and this baby! I actually got pregnant with this baby day that Charlie was actually due... there have been so many signs that he's with us and watching over us this time... The hardest thing is waiting for the amnio that darn amnio to come back... With Charlie, they DID see the markers on the ultrasound, that was what prompted us to do the amnio... I will keep my fingers crossed for you! I have my AFP test on Wednesday, this is what raised all the red flags with Charlie (then went to the level II us... then the amnio) Anyway... I'm nervous about getting just that done! lol! I am confident that we will get through all this testing then be able to breath a sigh of relief. Ü

Susan, I'll be thinking abotu you today. I hope the amnio goes well today and I hope baby passes with flying colors. Please let us know how it went when you get back. I know that you are going to be on pins and needles the next 2 weeks, I understand what you mean about expecting the worst. I think it's just a protection mechanism, and also sometime to boost us when things do turn out alright. Which I am sure things will for you

well, there isn't much to report. It didn't so much as hurt as it was uncomfortable. We don't know much new so we will just have to sit and wait for the results. They couldn't tell the sex either. The umbilical cord was between its legs The tech felt bad but I told her it was no big deal, we are going for healthy and we will find out from the amnio anyway.

I am exhausted from the stress and now it is the waiting game for the phone to ring with the results. The DR said she didn't see anything to cause her concern, but she couldn't tell me for sure everything was ok either or they wouldn't need amnios (no kidding).

Thanks for the positive thoughs and I am so glad I am done with that part!

(((hugs))) I am glad it went as good as it could. Now the yucky part - WAITING - it's a dirty word in my book. I hate the waiting. I want all answers yesterday if possible please! At least when it comes to this stuff. I will be praying you get hte best of possible results. I am glad you aren't in any discomfort.... We're all pulling for ya!

Argh, waiting! Hate it! At least it's over and I 'm so happy you were able to get it done despite the doc's offices' mix up.

Your little one is being sneaky with the gender revealing. Moving the umbilical cord to cover things up, tsk tsk

Waiting is a bad word in my book too.
I'm glad it went well. When do your results come in?
