Prenatal Test Results!

So we got the first set of prenatal screening results back a few days ago. Everything looks great and the good news is our baby doesn't have a fat neck HAHAHA!! Wait, let me explain. Here is a brief explanation of the test they did...
What is the nuchal translucency screening test?

This prenatal test (also called the NT or nuchal fold scan) can help your healthcare practitioner assess your baby's risk of having Down syndrome (DS) and some other chromosomal abnormalities as well as major congenital heart problems.
The NT test uses ultrasound to measure the clear (translucent) space in the tissue at the back of your developing baby's neck. Babies with abnormalities tend to accumulate more fluid at the back of their neck during the first trimester, causing this clear space to be larger than average.
The NT scan must be done when you're between 11 and 14 weeks pregnant. It's usually offered along with a blood test in what's known as first-trimester combined screening.

So we got the results and everything looked great. Our risk of Downs Syndrome actually went down to a 1 in 10,000 chance. I can definitely live with those odds!

So for those of you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to find out the baby's sex (Ehhhemmm, WILMA!! HAHAHA) I will be having an ultrasound on Sept 15th, HOPEFULLY they will be able to tell me then. If they can't tell then, I will have a 4-d ultrasound on Sept 26th to tell us EXACTLY whether this little one is a Greysen Elizabeth or a London Michael!
