Oh, that swoosh sound, yes! I've been thinking of getting a doppler, but we don't really have access to Amazon or something similar in Malaysia, internet fraud capital of the world! To answer a question above, my research is about music and history, and we'll be here until November, and then head to the UK (Yorkshire) where baby will be arriving (I'm really from Michigan but have a job in London). That is, if my family can handle it--we've been in Indonesia for the last two months, and it may be all our 3-yr-old and my husband can stand to be away from our normal life 'til November (it is not Malaysia itself, but the temporary nature of the arrangement). In which case, we'll come back a little bit early.
Anyway, I hope that I can get a NT scan here--I'm sure I can, it is just a matter of finding a private clinic that does it. I for one am feeling you all about the fear that you'll get to the ultrasound and nothing will be there, or the measurements are way off. I'm just happy about feeling consistently pregnant-abdominal pressure, breast soreness--and hope that everything is on cue. It will be so reassuring to have a positive 12 week ultrasound... please, please, please!
I really want to go for a swim later tonight--the condo that we're renting has a nice pool--but I bet anything that my son won't give me 20 minutes of freedom, knowing that I'm in the pool and unavailable. We'll try a setup where my husband takes my son around the premises on his scooter, while I get in a few laps of front crawl (alternated with breast stroke--I am pregnant, after all). I'll report back on how many laps I get in!
