Tell me about it, Shiloh. It took me hours to wrap my head around NT stats: MoM (multiple of the median) and all that. The thing is, though, you won't have to worry about amnio unless you have some very specific pointers, plus, when I actually had mine done by a very experienced doctor, the nurse told me that his rate was less than .01%, so it does depend on skill.. And hopefully, like Serafina (hooray!), you'll get enough info from tests (if you decide to do them, that is) to give you confidence. Serafina, how far along are you? Is this already the 11+ week scan we're talking about? Or did you just have the blood work done? In any case, I'm glad you're relieved... it must feel good.
I, on the other hand, am 8 weeks and I haven't been to the doctor yet. I'm not normally nervous, but I would very much like to hear a heart beat when we go in for the first prenatal on Thursday. Especially since I've had no pregnancy symptoms--no morning sickness, no nuthin' (except for sore boobs--but this was exactly how it was with the first two pregnancies, so that itself is not too worrisome). Not only that, but I'm trying to figure out how to schedule a NT test, since I'll be leaving the UK at 11w1d and from then on I'll be in the Netherlands (at least for three months). I don't think you can find a midwife and get booked for an ultrasound in that quick a time, although we'll see, I suppose!
