Quick Update – NT Scan at 11 weeks 4 days

8 09 2009

I had my NT scan today – it was the first time I saw the babies move and it was out of this world phenomenal.  So, yes, the babies look fine and were right were I thought they were (I found both hbs on the doppler on Sunday – not planning on using it again until I get crazy anxiety).

Baby A:  measuring 12w5d (what???  I was like is this okay, measuring so far ahead and they said yes, completely fine), heartbeat 156, nuchal measurement 1.2 (which is awesome – they want to see below 3)

Baby B: measuring 12w1d, heartbeat 150, nuchal measurement 1.6

So yes, my little Sprouts are growing and doing just fine.  It was amazing to see their skinny little legs, arms, fingers and toes.  It really is the most amazing thing I have ever seen.  

I have lots sadness, weird guilt almost, still a bit out of place – about all of my fellow IF and recurrent miscarriage ladies out there – I think of so many of you every day.

Great news on the NT scans (and doppler)! Sounds like you’ve got one big baby in there if it’s a few days ahead. Though measurement error about now is supposed to probably be 5-7 days.
I succumbed and listened in with the doppler at work again today. In another 2 weeks I’ll out myself, and then won’t be ashamed to say I’m sneaking in to have a check. For now, I’m just “casually wandering” around L&D if I’m on call or doing epidurals, and heading into the triage room as if I’m bored (while secretly just checking if anyone’s in there).
Freaked myself out today though since it took me a little while to find the heartbeat (had totally moved house from last time).

I think of you very often too Lisa. And I’m really sorry that I have not been as supportive as I’d like to be usually. Terribly sorry about that. Thanks for always reaching out to me and letting me know you care. I tear up each time I get a note from you. But no, don’t stop writing – it’s not that type of tears. 🙂

Glad all’s well with the sprouts!

Fabulous news! I was grinning from ear to ear while reading about little arms and legs and good god girl, things are looking great. How wonderful and magical is that? Congratulations and sending much hope and love for more great peaks in the weeks and months to come.

I am so glad that you are sprouts are doing well. And thanks for thinking abt me. I am at a point where almost all my fellow blog buddies that I started with are either PG or already have a baby. So its very hard to find the motivation to blog and be positive abt it. Thanks for letting me know that you are there. ((HUGS))

Miss MVK

Awesome news! So happy all is going well and your Sprouts are thriving. Good job, mama. 🙂 I know that you feel betwixt and between, but remember that your happiness is important and does not take away from the sorry or sadness you feel for others. You can feel both.

Lisa, what fabulous news!!! I’m so happy to hear that the NT measurements were great and that you got to see the Sprouts moving about–it must have been absolutley amazing?! Did I miss that you got a Doppler? Where the heck have I been.

I hear you on feeling like you’re in a weird place. I’m right there with you. I feel guilty posting my happy news when others have such sadness in their lives, but after much thought I decided that I’d want them to do the same. I know that when I was going through a loss I’d just stay away from the pregnant bloggers until I felt ready, so I hope they do the same. The last thing either (any) of us wants to do to a fellow IFer and recurrent miscarrier is to inflict more pain and I just hope they know that.

It has got to feel SO GOOD that they are measuring so far ahead- I know I would breathe a big sigh of relief that the m/s didn’t keep them from growing as well. When’s your next u/s?

This all sounds so very exciting and good!
