NT Ultrasound Yesterday

Just popping in for a visit. (I've been so sick lately...seems like the morning sickness really kicked in around week 10, but even worse has been the insomnia!!!)
Went for my NT ultrasound yesterday. The sonographer was a bit evasive, but said baby "looked real good". S/he was so active that the sonographer had a hard time getting good images...even went to the bathroom to slightly empty my bladder and see if that helped and baby was still uncooperative...LOL.
Afterward, I went for a blood draw and was told that it would be about a week before I had any results. I hope I don't torture myself!!!
My NT with Mary (in vitro baby) was normal and my NT with Ben (age 37, spontaneous pregnancy) was also normal, but I know the odds increase with age.
I must say that I was a nervous wreck going in there yesterday afternoon...I was just so worried that they were going to scan me and baby would no longer have a heartbeat. Just negative thinking on my part. Last year's m/c ended at 6w5d even though I carried through 10 and so when we saw little bean at 9w3d I should have been relieved, but I've just had so many losses.
I try to reason with God...really...should an infertile, multiple m/c, in vitro mom also have to deal with Down's or one of the other trisomys, but I don't think God works that way!
I'll keep you posted,
