Well, today I had an u/s and met with my dr. Dh and I saw one healthy 8 1/2 week old baby with a strong heartbeat of 182 beats/min. We also saw leg and arm buds. It was very exciting.

Since I am 35, I have the option of having an amino. and other tests. We chose not to have them done. (due to risks and/or too many false positives.) My dr said the chances of me having a healthy baby are very good! Yeah!!!

My official due date is 8/26/07, but I will be having a c-section probably the week before.

Thanks for all your prayers. Please continue to pray that I have a healthy pregnancy and baby! Thank you!

BFP prayers for all of you,
Susan

Susan,

I am so glad you had a good appointment. 182, my guess is it's a girl (all three of my girls had fast heart rates, but it is really an old wives tale).

I also don't blame you for opting out of the tests. I had a false positive on my quadscreen for downs on my last pregnancy. It caused a lot of undo worry and stress. I won't be having one of those again.

Have a wonderful and uneventful 31 weeks!

Thank you!

Yes, I am a worrier, so I don't want or need to worry for no reason. I will just let it up to God to watch over me and the baby.

Thanks, and I hope you get a your BFP soon!

Thanks, Sheila. I hope the next 31 weeks are boring very normal.

Hoping and praying for a BFP for you,

Thanks! Yes, maybe it is a girl. But, the Chinese birthing calendars say its a boy. I guess we will have to wait and see...

I think we are going to wait to find out the sex of the baby. I love a good surprise!

Praying for a BFP for you this next cycle,
Susan
