My scan is Friday and I am a ball of nervous. I keep googling "false negative NIPT". Even without a trisomy there are so many anomalies or issues...it's scary. What if baby has a severe cardiac defect? Am I emotionally ready to make a decision regarding quality of life and termination? Cue the week long panic...and I'm off starting tomorrow for the rest of the week so I don't even have the distraction of work. So so happy for all the wonderful news so far, ladies!
Can I ask----has anyone ever had the 1 in 10 chance of a bad gender scan aka they didn't see it was a boy? I am guessing that's the only way that runs.
I'm starting to panic about the possibility that the ultrasound tech won't tell us ANYTHING about whether or not baby's systems are looking normal. The absolute last thing I want is to be left in the dark during the whole scan. Maybe an irrational fear...but my next doctors appointment is in a week, and I don't want to wait that much longer to learn if everything is okay or not. I'm probably jumping to worst case scenario, but I'm afraid the tech won't even answer our questions like "does that look normal"? Im just really scared to have a bad experience, because it's not as exciting for them as it is for me...it's just another baby on a screen to them.
