  • @splashmountain at some point one of my drs/nurses said they would only change the due date if I measured more than a week off, but if it was just a couple days either side of the EDD they would keep it the same

  • @louessbee had I not had Carrier screening I would have just gone on and had all the normal scans and seen a healthy baby and totally avoided a lot of unnecessary stress.  I totally get it.  For me amnio results may have changed which hospital I deliver at as well as impacted insurance decisions for 2020 because we may have needed a NICU or something.  If it will not change your treatment during pregnancy or when you give birth than it’s probably less important.  Also I trust when your tech said one of the babies was moving too much. They do a lot of amnios on a lot of babies and I trust them to judge a safe vs unsafe situation.  My baby pretty much slept through it, but had it been the day of our AS it would have been a no go because baby was wild.  Also it can safely be done later in pregnancy if you decide you want to as the babies shift around in there.

  • @pirateduck We might revisit if the MaterniT21 comes back hinky. But it came down to that I'm already delivering at a hospital with a level 2 NICU, because it happens to be our closest hospital (less than a mile away), and we wouldn't attempt a reduction because of the risk to the other babe, and we're not going to get results until we're past termination. We've also had carrier screening done and we're not shared carriers for anything, so that's another reduction in risk. We still have a small question-mark next to "potential spontaneous chromosomal abnormalities", but again, there's a good chance those would have been picked up on the NT or AS. But it would have been nice to avoid some of this stress, right? 
  • @louessbee ugh, the stress.  I sometimes wonder had I not gone through this if I would have just found something else to worry about...  there’s always something.  

    I wish my hospital had better facilities honestly.  However I am comfortable with my doctors and it’s an hour from home, which makes it the closest birth center by a lot, and the one we can most realistically make it to easily when the time comes.  The thought of going further to the city while in labor sounds extremely stressful to me, so the small local hospital it is.  Also it’s only about 20 minutes from my work.

  • @pirateduck Trying to go more than an hour away while in labor does not sound like fun, I agree. And you're probably right, there's always something to stress about!

    Thanks for sharing your experience with the amnio and for thinking of me. I really appreciated the realistic expectations and the kind words.
  • 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?

    With my now 2 year old daughter we had 3 different markers show up- one with three kidney, heart & brain. She turned out to be a healthy smart child with no genetic issues.  I honestly think its very common for things to show up at the 20 week scan and end up resolving themselves by the next check!

  • @4thonthewayinmay Thank you! That's super comforting. Did you have any testing or see any specialists after finding the soft markers or did you just have a regular growth scan?
