18+ wk US-It's a Boy!!!

Had my big US today that pretty much confirmed I'm having a boy and a healthy one at that. I've just had a strong feeling for the past month I have a little guy in there. Also finally saw my exact Ultrascreen numbers and the risk went from 1 in 50 for Down Syndrome at the outset (just based on my age) to 1 in 447, and for one of the other trisomies to 1 in about 1700. The heart, other organs, and spine all look good. This time, though, we had trouble getting a look at the face because the baby was on his belly for most of the session, but he finally obliged us in the end. What a cute little elf! Overall, a very successful appointment that left me feeling warm and fuzzy and very reassured.

Oh congratulations!

Boys are great...so are girls. I have one of both so I'm good either way, but I gotta say that there is something about my little guy telling me how much he loves me that absolutely warms my heart!

Great numbers and sounds like you got to see a healthy little bugger in the there!

Can't wait until my 21 week appt...a week from Monday! I'm dying to find out!

XOXO,
Val

Boy 'o boy! Congratulations!!! :-D So happy to read of all the other positive news from your appt too!

I'm really curious to know too but I have another 9 weeks or so to wait - ughh. I have two boys now and I'm not so sure I'll have a clue what to do with a girl! I will feel equally blessed either way though.

I started out without any strong preference and still would be happy either way as long as the baby's healthy, but I've just had such a strong feeling I was carrying a boy since my NT scan that I would have been a little disappointed if my instincts had been wrong.

I'll be looking forward to hearing good news, whether they're boys or girls, from all of you too.

What a great visit! I'm so glad you feel better about the great numbers you received -- and I'm thrilled that you're so thrilled about having a boy. Congrats on a great visit. Now try to sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of your pregnancy -- well, as much as it's possible to enjoy pregnancy, LOL! Thanks for sharing the great news with us.
