Early Screening Update

Our appointment on Monday, December 8th went very well. The baby looked healthy with no signs of Down Syndrome. Of course we have to wait 10 days to find out the results of my blood work. The results will tell us if the baby has any other chromosome disorders. Our doctor was very happy with the growth of the baby and said that he/she was very active which was apparent in the ultrasound. The baby was moving from side to side as if it were trying to escape the wand on my belly. This ultrasound for Kevin and I was amazing. We saw the baby move his/her hands, feet, legs and mouth. At one point the little lips were moving in a sucking like motion. Boy, that really got me and of course I was hungry too! :)

We are so relieved, at this point, to know that the baby seems to be healthy, have all the fingers, toes, arms, legs and to be "normal", as the doctor said. So, in this case, no news is good news and we are just elated. Thank you God for our blessing!
