I'm just copying the same post I put in the Oct DDC (too exhausted to add more like I planned). Here is my update from my appointments today:

I've been MIA for a few days since I haven't been feeling that great and can barely function when I get home from work, but I'm jumping on here to update you about my appointments.

First thing this morning I went for my NT scan and blood work (1st trimester screen). I was so worried before going that I didn't sleep well last night, but as soon as she turned on the ultrasound I saw the baby moving around and felt overcome with relief.

Baby looks healthy, his/her heart beat was 158, and he/she posed perfectly for the NT scan. The NT measurement was perfect at 1.6. I won't get the blood results back for a few days, but I feel much better with today's results. We also got to see that the baby has the proper two brain halves, saw the profile of the nose and mouth, saw the ears, and counted all the digits on the hands (see pics below). The overall average measurements were consistent with a due date of Oct 15th, but I'm sticking with the 14th since the other two ultrasounds I had said either 10/13 or 10/14.

I then had my first midwife appointment this afternoon. I am switching from the OB who has been following me through the first trimester (and through my miscarriages) to a home birth midwifery group. This is the same group of midwives that delivered my daughter at a local birth center. I'm very excited about delivering with them again, and of hopefully fulfilling my dream of having a home birth. She let my daughter find the baby's heart beat with the Doppler, and she found it right away.
