    now I am wondering what fanta pineapple is like....

    I'm still holding out on this all just being a wild goose chase! It doesn't seem like there's any consistency in what folks are telling you -- esp. if @more14's NIPT report had a 3 percent fetal fraction and it can fluctuate. U/S has all been fine for you. I wasn't able to do the NIPT because I had a vanishing twin that would affect the results (since it could catch the abnormal/passed twin's dna as well as the healthy one) and just relied on u/s to make sure everything was ok. It's important to remember that NIPT like Panorama and Materniti21 are very new additions to the OB's testing arsenal so there are probably lots of things we don't know about them still.

  • How far along? 25 weeks today

    Appts this coming week? I have a follow up ultrasound appointment on Monday. During the last ultrasound, they couldn't get clear pictures of everything because of the baby's position  

    How're you feeling this week? I feel okay, but I'm just starting to feel really big. Because I'm on my feet all day for work, my have started to swell in the evenings  I strained my back last weekend. My back is better but I'm still having some lower back issues... this time from the pregnancy probably. 


    GTKY:  Are you dressing up for Halloween?

    My son is going to be a dinosaur. I have a costume for my school Halloween parade. Every year, I throw on a witch's hat and wig, but that's all. I am excited to take ds trick or treating for the first time this year.
