Had my 2nd prenatal visit today-I was scared at first because the dr couldnt pick up a heart beat-however, he sent me to have a sono done-and all is perfect! baby has a heartbeat of 162 so happy!
the dr also asked me if I wanted to be seen my genetic counselers. I chose to go ahead and do it. he did say i really didnt have to since im just now 35-but I guess I just want to do it for peace of mind-well, maybe. I heard that they give info and risk numbers that are pretty nerve wrecking.
I am hoping that all goes well--and that i dont have anxiety attacks over the results Lol
I'm 36 and just had my genetic counseling appointment today. It was hard waiting for the doctor to come back with the nuchal translucency results, but he said everything looked great so that was a relief. We opted for some blood tests too, just to be sure. The office I went to is really modern, they don't do the risk numbers or anything anymore, it's just the nuchal translucency and how that looks and then a blood test that sequences the baby's chromosomes in your blood and is ~99% accurate with a yes/no answer for each chromsomal problem.
