Well we won''t know anything from the amnio for another week or so. They didn''t have enough fluid to do the FISH (preliminary) results so now we have to wait the full 2 weeks for the big results. Stay tuned!
We are done with the amnio!!!!!! It wasn''t the most comfortable thing I have been through but it wasn''t the worst either. We got to see Junebug wriggling all over the place. We saw fingers and toes and at one point (s)he gave us a nice profile shot then turned and looked right at us. We are pretty sure that there is a nasal bone (lack of one is a soft marker for DS) so that was nice. We qualify for getting the preliminary results (called the FISH results) so we should know about trisomy 13,18 and 21 plus the sex next Thursday. WOO HOO!!!! If we hadn''t qualified for the FISH results then we would have had to wait until around January 7th.
I found the heart beat on the doppler today!!! It is kind of early to be able to hear it but there it was. It was nice and strong and made my whole day!
I am 9 weeks 2 days today and thank goodness I am still feeling great. I get the "flahs" if I smell or see something that doesn''t meet my pregnancy nose standards hahaha. The first trimester tiredness has also hit full force but other than that I feel great! No morning sickness. Thanks to everyone who has checked in on me and Junebug! Life is good!
