Back from Cape Cod and NT Scan today — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Back from Cape Cod and NT Scan today

Hello all, I am looking forward to getting a snack and reading over everything I missed while I was away. My family and I had a great time at Cape Cod and thankfully it kept my mind off of our NT scan which was today. I am always so nervous before an appointment!

The scan was unsuccessful but we are just happy that baby is doing well, measuring a couple days ahead and hb was a strong 152! The nurse said that there is a 50/50 chance that they wouldn't be able to do the measurement today which I found strange because up till today I had not recalled anyone posting that they couldn't get measurements done. Our LO was on it's side and not facing us. I poked and prodded a bit, went to the bathroom and when I came back LO had flipped over but was again on the opposite side not facing us. LOL, it was still fun to see it move around and it was wiggling its little tushy for us. ha! So cute. 

I still did the blood test, but honestly DH and I didn't care too much. We just wanted to see LO once more before our next u/s which won't be until 20 weeks. Overall it was a nice experience and I am very relieved to be entering into my 2nd trimester tomorrow (according to my doc. office). Hope everyone had a good week and I will catch up on posts soon!

    Welcome back!  Congrats on making it to 2nd tri, what a milestone!  Sorry you couldn't get measurements on LO.  My little girl would not cooperate for her 3d/4d u/s - they let us try 4 times and we never once saw her face.  Sometimes they are just stubborn (like their daddies.)  Glad everything else went well.  I know the 8 weeks until your a/s seems like FOREVER - but I promise you 2nd tri will fly by!
