24w2d appt/ level 2 ultrasound to look for downs markers

Oct 21, 2010 - 8 comments

So I went to my regular appt first yesterday. All 10 mins of it lol I gained 2 pounds in the last 5 weeks.. I pushed my appt back a week so they would be on the same day that's why 5 weeks in stead of 4. Heart rate was around 155. I found out that I can't pick a dr to deliver my baby. My ob office is a BIG office and who ever is the ob the day I go into labor will deliver him. :( not to thrilled about that. Also found out that as long as there are no issues I may have a midwife deliver me. Not sure how I feel about that either... I am super paranoid given my background.

Ok so the level 2 us went great at the other dr office the tech was extremely rough with the wand it was pretty uncomfortable but I didn't complain. My desire to know if he was going to be ok was greater than the discomfort. The tech found no markers for DS. He is still a he lol He is butt down still which she said is ok this early. He weighs 1lb 6ounces... And is perfectly healthy!!!  However it does look like he has DH's nose..poor baby lol the dr. Lowered our chances to 1% but still asked if I wanted the amnio..of course my answer was still no. I can live with 1% because anybody has those odds. Needless to say I am relieved and thankful. Feeling super blessed and excited!!

I am so thrilled for you! 1% is nothing really and hopefully (even if he does have your dh's nose) he will be born beautiful and completely healthy!
