12 week ultrasound
Tue, 09-11-2012 - 5:11pm

Today I had my 12 week ultrasound and as far as I could tell it went great! I couldnt believe how big the baby was, I really didnt know what to expect but to me the LO was so big.  The tech printed me out pictures of each hand and leg and the full body, I love that I can see close ups of the little hands.  :smileyhappy: .  The tech was trying to get the nuchal translucency measurements but the baby would not move so she could get better measurements; we tried coughing and she had me walk around and use the bathroom and finally the baby moved but sat strait up... I told my fiance the baby is stubborn like him, haha. Finally she got some measurements and they were 1.6mm which I read is good so im not worried.  I still have to wait on the blood results, but so far with the measurement and my age im pretty sure my risk is very low.  I'm so relieved and happy. :smileyhappy:
