I can't believe the big day is almost here. I'm nervous as heck, but also looking forward to just getting it over with and the results back. I also get to find out if it's a boy or a girl - I think. It's gotta be pretty accurate at 16w, right?
Please keep your fingers crossed! Nothing like starting the day with a three inch needle jammed through your gut!
Good news is I get to watch the ultrasound for about a half hour!
I'm still debating whether or not to do that FISH test, which gives you prelim results. The nurse said because I'm having the amnio on a Friday, I probably wouldn't get the FISH until Tues. She said there's a good chance I'll have the FULL results by that Friday, so I guess 3 days isn't worth $300!
Then again, I might have to wait over that next weekend to get the full results, which would stink.
What would you do? Fortunately, we could afford the FISH...
SO how was it? I loved your visual of the HUGE needle jammed in your back....ugh I hate needles.
Hope it went well and you are able to get the results next week... I kinda agree 3 days $300 just think what you could buy for your lil one ....I'm a WORRY WORT but more than that I am a shopaholic so I'd rather shop LOL
