Ultrasound Info!

The baby is doing awesome! S/he is now measuring 11 weeks (which is 3 days ahead instead of 3 days behind!) My mom was so excited because s/he was flailing around in there a little bit of the time! It was pretty cool, if I do say so myself! It's really neat to have multiple ultrasounds and see the changes in the baby. Just a week and a half ago it really just looked like a little blob or a gummi bear or something! Now it looks like a whole baby!



Not the best picture b/c it's a picture of the picture but you can see both feet in this one! One (in person) you can see like the footprint of it!!! Soooo cute! I think I'm in love-again! ;)

I've also decided to skip the Nuchal Test Ultrasound (as well as the "quad" blood test) that tests for certain "defects". I talked to my dr and she said with my views on having the baby no matter what (because that's what I believe-even if it would be the hardest thing I'd ever make it through) that there's no point. Because if any of those tests come back with possible problems the next step is the amniocentesis. Since there is a risk of potentially causing a miscarriage (with the amnio) of a perfectly healthy/"normal" fetus...I wouldn't really want to do that. So, she said there's really no reason to do the screenings (the NT U/s and the blood test)!!!! I'm happy with my decision and feel like it's the right one for me. We'll continue to have regular ultrasounds as long as the dr sees it as a good thing...other than that? We're good to go!!!! :D
