update on NT scan and on...

Jul 05, 2011 - 10 comments

aahhh it feels like forever since I wrote some thing on MH ..I'v been so busy lately SIL went into surgery 2days ago and had to spend SO much time with her in the hospital since there's no1 with her. very exhausting especially the hospital is SO far away from home and u need a driver to pick u up n drop u off or get u any thing every time u need to eat, drink, change etc....
Well its over now..she had some complications during surgery and thats what made it more difficult to cope but she's doing good and recovering well.
Ok, so I had an appointment yesterday at 17:20 like most of u know..streets were SO crowded didn't get there on time since I was in the east n the hospital was in the south..anyways had been drinking water cuz they asked for a full bladder ..which didn't make my journey any easier of course lol..anyways I'd called in earlier n told them I'm running late they said its fine..arrived there at 18:00 and finally went in at 18:20.
sonographer started doing the usual checking the for any deficiencies malformations etc..then checked for the size of the baby. well turns out I'm 15 weeks not 13 weeks 4 days like I thought I was..which really confused me cuz that means I conceived on CD 6 or 7! cud it B that all the OPKs arent effective enuf to detect ovulation? y didn't they turn ++ when I tested? or did I NOT test cuz I thut it was TOO early to ovulate at this point?
hmm another thing that I thut wud effect the dating is the baby's head..cud a bigger baby head give us misleading info and shift my dates ?
then she started checking for the gender and said it "might" b a boy..she just doesn't like to confirm such things as early as 15 weeks she said I'll no for sure in 2 − 3 weeks..which is bearable hehe..

Overall everything was great, baby was healthy asleep in the beginning but woke up after all the pushing n poking hehe Thank God placenta was good no deficiencies were pointed out n more pictures will b given later when I c my Dr today for the official feedback!

I'm so grateful for everything thats happening to is has been SO generous to me and wish ALL u ladies get as lucky as I am right now..

love u all!

hey hun, great to here everthing went well, I kow what you mean about dates being confusing lol.. when I had my 12 wk nt scan it put me at 12wk 0 days, witch ment i would of concieved cd 3.. lol... just keep in mind they go off a 28day cycle and size of baby can very after the 12th week, as they can grow at slightly different rates.. it may just be that he  is growing at a slightly faster rate.. ( at least it a week less you have to wait to meet your baba..hehe)..

i'm still waiting for my results from downs test.. its been 10days now..argh.

I agree with jhannay...I bet you are 13wks just like you think you are. Maybe you just have a big baby growing in there ; ) hee hee.  I highly doubt you would've O'd on cd6 or 7 (not that that doesn't happen, but only because you had a blatantly positive opk later on that month around when you're sure you conceived). Baby is probably just growing fast and strong which is wonderful!!  Boy or Girl he/she will be one very loved and blessed baby!

Absolutely healthy is most important, baby boys are wonderful but little girls are sweet little peas too. Either way, happy and healthy and you'll fall in love the second you see him/her.  190cm what is that in feet??  My DH is only 5'8 and a half lolol so we'll probably have a shrimp : )
