Hi, just looking to get input on a couple of things from all of you experienced Mamas...
First, I had my 10 week ultrasound last week and saw a bouncing baby - YAY! The baby measured a few days less than I expected, but at the same time I think I ovulate a bit late in my cycle, so it makes sense. The baby had a heart rate of 160 - this is good for 10 weeks, right? The dr. said it was good, but she wasn't quite as excited as I was hoping for I guess.
Also, we signed up to do the sequential screening - not that we would do anything if we came back as high risk, but more just to be prepared. I understand it's an ultrasound and blood test and then another blood test at 19 weeks. I didn't have this when I was pregnant with my dd, but I wonder if that's because I was 27 then and am 30 now? Does anyone have any feedback about sequential screening - positive or negative? I'm just wondering what the thoughts out there are.
