My amnio test results

I went to see the gynae with great anticipation yesterday. The nurse had called me the day before and said that my results were out. She said to her knowledge, it was normal. However, I still did not want to have too high hopes in case she read wrongly.

Anyway, we all went and Ryan had a great anticipation about finally being able to see the baby. I actually meant through th scan, not physically seeing it, but he had other thoughts as usual.

When our turn came, the doctor smiled and said .... "Firstly, the results said that you are fine and everything is normal ... secondly, you are going to have a baby XXX!" I was a little taken back as I had been debating if I wanted to know. Just before we entered the clinic, hubby said maybe we should just find out since it is already tested. We had laid a bet on it and I won! Darn! I should have betted for something more than just dinner at Shang.

But we left with a lightt heart and felt happy that all was fine. Except that Ryan was upset because he did not see the little baby. He had asked the doctor if he was going to cut it out of me and refused to talk to the doctor when he learned that it was not going to be today.

We are now looking forward to have the little one arrive in January 2009.

I'm so happy for you. I have an 18 week ultra sound and possible amnio scheduled for tomorrow. I know it is a bit late in the game, but I've only recently started panicing about my first trimester screening results. (1/2000 for Trisomy 21) I'm a worry wart you see, and I'd rather take a 1% risk then spend the rest of my pregnancy in a paranoid fit.
