7 more days

So I still have to wait 7 more days to hopefully hear those joyous words of you are having a healthy baby and it is a boy or it is a girl.

Part of me is so nervous but I can't wait to know if things are still looking okay. The peri that we are going to has seen on u/s what has happened to Sean's brain which is reassuring and frightening all at the same time.

I go for my first 17 P shot this Friday. I was suppose to start this past Friday but I couldn't get the medicine in time. My doctors office only gives them out on Fridays because that is when there are the most nurses in. I am so scared because I know it is going to hurt but I will suck it up to hopefully keep this little one in for as long as possible.

7 days and counting.

I can not believe I am 17 weeks already

Wow has time flown by I can not believe I am 17 weeks already. It is crazy how fast this is going:) The only thing going slow is waiting to go to the high risk peri and know that things are okay and we are having a healthy baby and if the baby is a boy or girl. Only 17 days to go!!!!

I go to my regular OB this week and will be starting the progesterone 17 P shots. I am sure that will be lots of fun, but whatever will hopefully help keep the baby in longer I am game for.

I have not gained any weight as of yet I am still down 8 lbs..... I know the weight will be coming though:)

I am feeling flutters all of the time and I have felt two kicks so far which is nice and reassuring.

Until next time the count down continues............................

Appt with a high risk peri

So we are all set for our first appointment with the high risk peri. They called us and scheduled it for June 1st. We will be going every 4-6 weeks for an u/s and to watch the brain development because of what happened with Sean and the closed lip schizencephaly. We will be going to Loyola where the peri I will be seeing has actually seen this on an u/s before.

The first hour and half will be with a geneticist and the next hour and half will be an u/s and hopefully after they tell us everything is okay we can find out if it will be a little boy or a little girl.

So far things are going pretty well, I have lost 10lbs thanks to being so sick the first three months but now that I am almost 4 months I am feeling much better.

I did the NT u/s and blood work and I am a little nervous about my down syndrome numbers but the doctors told me to not worry about them now because we will be doing another test at 17 weeks and we can go from there.

My NT u/s results were 1.2mm which are good.

My trisomy 13 and 18 were 1:19.501

My down syndrome 1:424 ( every where I have read people have 1 in 10,000, or 1 in 2,000

But I am just going to relax, breath and wait no matter what we will love the child the same it is just nerve racking.

I know some people have odds of 1:100 or less but with Sean my numbers were much higher.
