Re: December Appointments

  • @m6agua how was your appointment?

  • @m6agua my office gave us a sealed envelope so that we could open and it and discover together...  my husband was suspicious and convinced I already knew what it said (since I'm the one who picked it up) and then he refused to believe what was inside, suspected human error and they put the wrong card in  :D  He's just totally in denial that we are having a daughter.  At the next appointment that involved an US he had to ask doctors to confirm it's really a girl.

  • @pirateduck My husband is the same way. He really wants a girl, we know it’s a girl. BUT he said he won’t fully believe until the anatomy scan. He’s so suspicious that it’s wrong.

  • I’m so impressed at those of you who have the sex in the envelope and are waiting to open it. My mom is going to be told at the AS then tell us later at my birthday dinner and I’m already clime umm I don’t know if I can wait 4 hours 😂

  • @mamaj1220 I wanted to wait just one day to open the envelope with my husband on Thanksgiving, but we opened it the second I walked in the door when I got home!

    I only held on to our envelope for about 30 hours. Then my coworker opened it and wrapped it with the sleeper. So now the gift is under my tree and to find out I would have to open the wrapping/box which helps deter me. Also I’m super busy trying to do a bunch of other stuff and have DD to take care of, so I at least am not thinking about it every second.

  • @bananapanda My baby boy wasn't cooperating with the heart images either. Radiology called me today and I have to go back in on Thursday to see if they can get those images. I haven't heard any news about the other measurements and my Dr. says no news is good news. So I'm excited to go back for AS part 2. 

    Side note: Baby boy hasn't cooperated with ANY ultrasounds thus far. I wonder if this is foreshadowing how he's going to be after he's born :sweat_smile:

  • I’m glad all the scans went well today!

    @bananapanda It can be fairly common to have to go back to finish the pics of the heart. They have a checklist of images they need and with the heart they need certain angles. with it being so small, the baby moving, the heart beating, etc. it can be difficult. I was almost going to have to go back, the tech decided to try one last time and was finally able to get the pic. I also had to keep changing position, from back to side, and empty my bladder half way through.

  • @m6agua Same. Today's appt lasted 2.5 hours and they had me get up and empty my bladder at one point to try to get baby boy to move so they could get all the heart pictures they needed. Luckily he did.

    @jkr2019 36 weeks?! I'm going to think of you when I want to complain about being uncomfortable. I was talking to the sonographer today about triplets and she was saying it's so hard to get the middle baby, because there are hands and feet everywhere - I would love to see that! Even with my two, we'd be looking at one and there would be phantom hands and feet in the background. I wonder if you have a couple anterior placentas blocking the movement?  Anyway, good luck at your AS and I hope your dermatologist tells you you're fine. I got a bunch of skin tags with DS (so gross), but they all fell off after he was born.

  • @ruby696 i’m huge. And only five foot tall so I carry it all in front. And yes, the triplet ultrasound is a little hard to follow. There are just little body parts everywhere! So cute to imagine them playing/snuggling with each other in there. Even the sonographer gets mixed up sometimes and will accidentally start measuring the same baby twice and have to start over! I have one big placenta and it is anterior, so I’m guessing that is playing a role in not feeling as much movement.

  • @jkr2019 I'm 5ft tall too - I can't imagine fitting a third baby in there! Your poor back!
  • ugh...  my OBs office just called to cancel/reschedule my AS.  So annoyed.  I picked the day I picked and adjusted my work schedule accordingly.  It was supposed to be this week, but now I don't know...  nothing is going right lately.

  • I had my anatomy scan today and all looked well except they found a couple soft markers for trisomy 18/21. There were 3 echogenic foci in the left ventricle of his heart and a choroid plexus cyst in his brain. Apparently these are most likely normal findings but the fact that they aren’t isolated because there are two of them may be more worrisome. The next step would be NIPT testing, which we already had done and came back negative. So that’s positive. The stats lean towards this not being an issue but I can’t help but be nervous about it. The OB said if we are really nervous we could see a genetic counselor and have an amniocentesis. I don’t think we will go that far, right now we have a growth scan scheduled in 8 weeks. Feels so far away. Has anyone had similar findings on their anatomy scan?

  • @rachelg777 yes I did with DS! We went to a high risk specialist and he did a 4D scan and saw that the markers were actually calcium deposits and in his words “you should have just gone to the woods to have this baby you’re fine” we didn’t need additional testing after but were followed up towards 30 weeks to make sure they didn’t grow. Feel free to PM me if you want to chat more I know it is a scary moment to hear that ❤️

  • @mamaj1220 thank you for answering that is reassuring! ❤️  Did you also have the plexus cyst in addition the the eif? Do you know how many of the “bright spots” (eif) they saw with your DS? The rational part of me says the data says not to be concerned but I’m having trouble being rational.

  • There were 3 in his heart and no cyst that I remember but to be honest I kind of got lost when they said the eif could be a hole in his heart or soft triggers. And I know it’s impossible to stay rational everything runs through your mind of what it could be.

  • @mamaj1220 yes it’s scary knowing there is a chance something is wrong, even if that chance is low. Thanks for sharing your experience, it’s nice to hear “personally” of someone with a good outcome vs. reading studies and just seeing numbers. I think we’ve decided for sure not to pursue an amnio, etc. I’m hoping at least one of the two markers has disappeared at our growth scan in 8 weeks.

  • @rachelg777 since the NIPT was all clear I wouldn’t worry about a trisomy but would ask if there are other concerns with these findings.  Stay calm.  Sending hugs.
