Pregnant after a Loss

OMG- Harmony blood Test results came back early!

WOW! I was not expecting them to come a week +1 day after the test!

The results: AMAZING--1 in 10,000 chance for Downs and "low risk" for the other Trisonomies, as well as the Monosomies (which have a history of false "high risk" findings in this test).  I was terrified of getting a false(or real!)  "high risk"--- our first baby had Monosomy X, aka Turner's Syndrome (after the Nuchal revealed fluid all around the baby at 13 wks, a CVS confirmed complete/non-mosaic Turner's).  ANYWAY-- low risk for everything?!?!  Really??  I just cried and cried with joy.  And I was at work.  Actually I ran out onto the sidewalk, as no one at work knows :)  So I cried on the street in front of half of Sydney.  Our Nuchal is next week and I feel I can walk in there with my head held high- I'll still be a mess, but I'll be a slightly more confident mess.

What an amazing feeling.  And the bonus is we got to find out the sex: it's a BOY!  So crazy.

I have to be honest and say I felt a little crestfallen that it wasn't a girl.... I so badly wanted a healthy girl after the loss of our sweet, tiny girl in July.  But this will be helpful: It's not a replacement for the baby we lost, and having it be the other sex will make everything feel very different, and I'm happy about that. 
A BOY!! I can't even get my head around it.  If he turns out to be anything like his father, we're very lucky parents.

Thanks for listening.... I'm over the moon.
