Today I had my appointment with genetics to discuss first trimester screening vs. NIPT. We had pretty much decided on NIPT already, so I really wasn't expecting a scan--just a lab draw. But after talking with the counselor and settling on NIPT, she said they did want to do a quick scan to check overall measurements to make sure we were on track. So that was a pleasant surprise! I did have a moment of panic, though, because I had not mentally prepared for a scan today, and what if there was bad news?! As soon as she started the scan, I was instantly looking for that little beating heart, and was relieved to see it. And the little bean was bouncing around everywhere! All measurements were perfect: 12w4d (by LMP I'm 12w5d, so right on track), HR was 155 BPM, and NT measurement was 1.4. Everything looked great, as far as we could tell. So relieved!We got several good pics, though my phone camera is being uncooperative at the moment. Here are a couple, though.

Hey!! So good to see you! Thank you--this one was a (happy) surprise! I'm due September 14th. My little guy will be not quite two when this one is born.

How are you and your family doing? I was literally just thinking about you the other day as I was doing a Yoga with Adriene video. Hope all is well with you!
