1st Trimester Screening

I went out this last Wednesday (3/20) to the city. They don't offer the blood testing or the N/T scan where I live.

Wednesday U/S gave us all a lot of hope as both babies had wonderful N/T measurements. If you are not sure what I'm talking about, check THIS out.

I was told we would not get the blood results back for a few days, so imagine my surprise when I received the blood tests the evening after, yesterday.

Both babies are perfect :)

Even though they are not mine, I was still relieved to hear that. I got a video of the babies made and sent it to the IPs, they loved it.

12 Weeks

This blog has been neglected a bit, and I apologize. I was on bed rest for the last two weeks due to a sub-chronic hemorrhage. I spotted a bit, but nothing really major. The bed rest was more a precaution from the fertility clinic as I hadn't been released to my doctor yet. 

I have been now, and I am off bed rest, finally. Tomorrow we have a N/T Scan. This u/s they will measure the fluid behing baby's neck. Abnormal results COULD mean a chromosome abnormality. We will combine these results with a blood tests that also checks for abnormalities and determine if a more invasive procedure is needed. (Amnio, cvs, etc.)

We had our last U/S on Monday the 11th and both babies were growing well and were dancing away. This last Thursday we had our first OB appointment. 


Still sick. I'm on zofran every 8 hours and that is SORT OF helping. But not much. I still gag at basically anything. It's crazy. I'm over it.
