On Thursday I am going in for my 17w alpha fetoprotein blood test. I am feeling pretty good about it and how things are going... so I am hopeful for a great result, with no worrying signs of Downs or Trisomy. My first alpha fetoprotein and U/S were both completely encouraging, so let's hope this trend continues.
In general, I am feeling well. Tried, but good. I am having a bit of a difficult relationship with food. I am almost totally ambivalent about eating, and my portion sizes are way down. Everything I am eating is super good though. No junk at all. In fact, I've lost about 10 lbs over the last 4 months. My OB isn't at all concerned, given my starting weight, but I am sure this trend will be turning around shortly.
Anyhoo... I'll let you know the results from the blood test just as soon as I get it. It does take a few days apparently to get the results. More waiting. We are experts at that, aren't we??
