I have had a ton going on, so I actually almost forgot <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: . I'm due Feb 29th and although I feel HUGE I still have not felt the baby kicking or moving yet. I am sort of leaning towards hoping it's another girl so the circ. discussion/stalemate is moot. BUT whomever is in there, I can't wait to see you!<br><br>
Have you had an amnio? We are having it done because we do have genetic diseases that if caught early can save the baby's life. (Wilson's Disease among others). Also I'm a bit older than most mamas, 36. We had good friends that had the highest level ultra sounds, including a 3-D one and their baby had undiagnosed Down's Syndrome. It's something she would have liked to have been prepared for.<br><br>
All of these factors are why we made the appointment.<br><br>
Hope to check back later in the day!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

If you can, bring a walkman w/headphones with you. I found it relaxing to listen to Sarah Mcclachlan while going thru this procedure.

Hey Louise you sneaky mama!!!! When are you due??? I didn't know you were 'here'!!!<br><br>
Here's the update:<br>
Hey, I'm back and a little shakey but fine. It hurt much more than I anticipated. It is such a weird feeling, and to see the needle on the screen as well was a total trip. Just waiting for results now, I'm not worried about that but of course about hurting the little nut because of the amnio.<br><br>
I'll post ultrasound pics when I'm feeling more up to it. We didn't see any girlie parts or boy parts so I guess we'll have to wait. The pictures look amazingly like the alien in Close Encounters when it raises it hand--you'll have to see!! LOL!!<br><br>
Thanks!!<br><br>
Meg
