So, if any of you were patient enough to read my post a few days ago regarding my 18 week appt/ anatomy scan, you know that the u/s tech said all looked healthy, but OB looked over the numbers later and said that the femur was measuring just a little short.

Wow, Tiffany!
I am so happy for you. Such an amazing experience. And may I say, God bless your OB. I can only begin to imagine how much relief and joy he has brought to you.
Congratulations on your healthy boy!!!!!!!!!! Wish you that it goes just smoothly from now.

That is amazing! What a great OB you have, he sounds really conscientious. I'm so glad everything looks healthy. I understand your concern about Down's, I feel the same way since I'm 36. But keep in mind that while our risks are slightly higher than younger ladies, that just means we have only a 99.5% chance of having a healthy baby as opposed to 99.99% (or thereabouts)! I know plenty of "older" moms who've had babies into their 40's, including my own grandmother, and no one I know has had a baby with any issue at all.

I'm so glad you have such a fantastic doctor! And it's great you get another sneak peak at your baby boy. It's funny that you mentioned the difference between the baby and the pregnancy. I will admit that it's a distinction I never thought of.

Thanks to you all for your kind words and support! It really is so wonderful to have a board like this where we can say things we might not IRL, and where everyone understands :)


Thanks again for sharing in my good news!
