We got the results of the CVS and the AFP back. The chromosomes all look good, and they said that spina bifida was highly unlikely. I can't even begin to tell you how relieved we are. Sure, there is still a possibility of other anatomical problems, and those will be determined by ultrasound and MRI, but very nearly none of them are as likely to be as bad as the chromosomal stuff we were worried about.
I feel like I can finally start to really believe this baby's going to make it.
Oh! And it's a girl! We were pretty sure before, due to ultrasound, but now there is no doubt, since they saw XX!
