The genetic counselor called this afternoon. I tested negative!! : I have a 1:413 chance of Trisomy 21 (based on age alone I had a 1:950) and a 1:5000 chance of Trisomy 18. Anything over 1:220 is considered negative. What a nice Christmas present!!!
I thought it was strange that immediately after I vomited a few weeks ago I had an intense craving for a giant plate of Greek food.
Thanks ladies! I know mainstream testing and additional u/s are controversial here, so it means a lot to have your support. There's only one baby in there! The nuchal fold measurement was fine - 1.7 (The tech said anything under 2.5 is considered normal). Gross anatomy was perfect so far! They still need to combine these latest findings with my blood work though, but I feel great after seeing my little one kicking and squirming!...
I felt the same thing, and then when I hit 12.5 weeks I could distinctly feel my uterus apart from my abdominal muscles. With my first pregnancy (before my muscles were stretched out) I couldn't really tell where the top of my uterus was until it reached my belly button.
I'll be thinking of you too!
I have eaten blue cheese and feta throughout this pregnancy. There are not a lot of foods that sound appealing to me, so if I am in the mood for a soft cheese, I am eating it!!
I am a little nervous, but trying to stay positive. My first trimester blood work came back abnormal (elevated hCG), so I have been referred to a perinatal office for a NF ultrasound. Then I will have to wait 5 days for a genetic counselor to give me my risk ratio for Trisomy 21, 18, and 13. I took it for granted that all my tests were great with DD. Part of me is happy with my decision to receive all the possible information (I am a science nerd ), but the other...
I have no itch to shop with this pregnancy so far. I tried to buy a lot of gender neutral things with DD that would work if we had a boy next, so I already feel pretty prepared. I need more newborn cloth (or might do a diaper service for the first couple of months - haven't decided). I want a new sling and an electric breast pump (my hand pump just didn't cut it with DD). I mainly just need to make a few furniture purchases. The new baby's room is currently my...

Therefore my MW said to take ibuprofen and avoid tylenol. I just looked it up, and both tylenol and ibuprofen pass through breastmilk in extremely small / safe amounts.
