I had my NT scan today and will receive the results in less than a week. After my scan I met with my doctor who took note of my enlarged uterus and when he looked at the scan he noticed my fibroids have almost doubled in size in the last month. The dating on my u/s is still measuring right on, but when he felt my uterus he said Im about a month larger than I should be because of the growing fibroids. I am nervous because that puts me at an increased 2nd tri miscarriage as well as a premature birth and pre term labor.
We did see something on the scan that made even the tech laugh at this early stage......what appears to be a boy!!! Here are a few pics from my scan. Im being cautiously optimistic
What a great set of pics. You must let us know how you get on with those fibroids. I still find it amazing that they can see so much at such an early age. I have my NT scan booked for Oct 14th. Keeping fingers crossed for you.
LOVE the pics! Remember that being over 35 puts us at risk for all kinds of things and it's rarely anything to worry about. Your fibroids are probably the same thing - just a little nusiance. Wishing you the best!
Thanks for the well wishes and kind words everyone. Little one was so active during the scan!
Sewergrrl you are correct and thanks for putting it in perspective. I guess I was taken aback because I had just come from what I thought was a good scan and then my OB was like "Wow, you're uterus is like a month ahead in looking at it". I'm hoping the fibroids will just stay at the size they're at but all I can do is take it a day at a time. Hugs to everyone!
As for the fibroids ... I'm in that boat too. But take heart, my perinatalogists tells me that most of the time they only grow during the first trimester. So maybe they are as large as they are going to get.
