I was so relieved to see the little bean jumping up and down in there and to hear its heart racing...he was moving so much that the doctor could hardly get a photo! He is 5cm long (I am 11 weeks) and the back of the neck appears normal.
My amnio is scheduled for 7 April. I asked about FISH quick results and will have to pay 500 euros myself if I have it. (About 700 USD?) I'm going to try to plead my case based on age Monday and then if that doesnt work then we'll have to decide whether to bite the bullet...I wish i lived in Canada, where it's free!
My doctor also told my to stop reading up about the age-related risks because it is making me worry and at the moment everything looks just fine. He is right. I will stop. I was so happy last night I couldnt sleep!
