Phew!

So I had my nuchal screening ultrasound today and I have to say, even for my cranky self, I found myself almost teary at how cute my little bundle is.  It looked great and it looked like a little baby.  It had all its fingers and toes and was wiggling around and looking cute.  We got some great shots of the profile and its hands and feet.  We did try and get a crotch shot, but it wasn't very cooperative and there really didn't seem to be much at this point to see.  Here is a picture...


The technician was really nice and she tried to get all angles for us.  She showed us the two different parts of the brain and pointed out almost everything she was measuring.  Apparently the little bundle is measuring right on for its age and it all looked good.  They pricked my finger and took some blood and will give me the actual number/odds of downs and trisonomy 13 and 18 in about a week.  But the doctor did come in at the end and told us that they like to see the fluid behind the neck measure less than 2.5mm and my baby measured 1.9mm, so I will take that as a good sign.  They gave me a DVD of the whole ultrasound which I plan on watching regularly...  It was a good day.  I will leave you with another shot of the little cutie.
