2nd u/s update :)

Thank you for your good thoughts. The RE said, "Baby's looking good" and we heard the hb!!!! We could see little arm buds. So cute!

Here are the stats:

CRL 2.36cm

GA 9w1d +/- 5 days (ticker indicated yesterday 8w3d)

EDD 3/6/12 (ticker says 3/11/12)

hb 166bpm

We will go back in 2 weeks for the nuchal scan and some blood work. At yesterday's visit I also had blood work and an exam. How early was anyone else's nuchal scan? Is that the NT? I've seen it recommended at 11-13 weeks, which I guess I'd be measuring about that in two weeks. I think though that by LMP it really would be 10 weeks.

Hey Lydia, I am lurking over here at PAL and I just saw your update and wanted to say hi and congrats! What a great u/s! I'm so happy for you. I hope you decide to join the March EC soon. And I agree with you, that does seem a bit early for the NT scan. My doc does them at 12 weeks.

YAY for everything looking good! I loved seeing the little arm buds :)

I had my nt scan at 13w5d, it cannot be done after 13w6d. That was my first appt with my new ob since I had to switch and I asked about it so he did it fit me in that day. I'm not sure how early they can do it, but I know they cannot accurately do it after 13w6d.

Yay for a fabulous u/s! I'm so glad you saw your little monkey and that he/she is thriving. Way to go momma! My NT scan was at 12w5d, and as Torie said they aren't done after 13w6d. I think the window generally starts at 10 or 11 weeks. :-)

Thank you for your replies, everyone. I'll be sure to ask the RE before we do the scan just to be sure. I really would not want to get an inaccurate result.

As for joining the March EC...I think about it. I had thought I'd do that after the 2nd u/s. Now I think I'd be more comfortable waiting a little bit. I guess it's the PAL brain. I hope I feel ready for the EC before too much longer.
