Ladies, we have a date! I am very excited to say that we will be finding out whether we are Team Blue or Team Pink on the 11th February. Not long to wait at all! We had a midwife appointment today and apparently I am in perfect health. All my tests came back wonderful and I turned to the HG and said 'Well, that's a first!'. After 3 years of tests and ops that revealed bad news (low progesterone, blocked tubes, polycystic looking ovaries . . . oh look - a uterine polyp! And another one! You get the idea) it was such a relief to be told that everything is perfect for once and baby and I are in tip top shape.
We got to hear the heartbeat for the first time too which was amazing as until now we have seen it but not heard it. As it's been a month since our last scan, it was such a relief to hear a nice strong heart beating away. Even though my belly continues to grow, as the MS starts to ease off I haven't felt as pregnant which can cause a few nerves (but just a few, I promise!) so was lovely to hear that, even for just a few minutes. I am excited at the prospect of feeling some first movements in the coming weeks aswell, as apparently it could be anytime from here on in. I truly can't wait for that time.
I also got my official results from those risk factor tests for Downs syndrome and Trisomy 13 and 18 and they are:
Downs syndrome - 1:21,000
T13 - 1:100,000
T18 - 1:100,000
And at the bottom in capitals was written LOW RISK. Phew!
