Amnio results

I am so happy! The results of my amnio showed no trisomy 18! We are having a healthy baby girl! I can't believe what a rollercoaster we've been on.

I also wanted to reassure anyone who is getting an amnio, it's NOT AS BAD AS YOU THINK. It really didn't hurt much at all, just a quick pinprick and then a small cramp as the needle goes through the muscle. Just a little bit worse than when they take your blood. I was expecting much worse, especially since I was alone. (We couldn't get a babysitter and my DS wouldn't set foot in the exam room so he and DH hung in the waiting room).

Anyway, Good luck to all of you, Thanks for being there when I was freaking out!

Dawn-

Congrats all around! That's great news & I'm sure you're happy to have a great little girl to go with the DS. Hopefully this means that you can now get off the roller coaster & spend the rest of the pregnancy just walking around the amusement park eating yourself silly. :)

Belly rubs!
