    Hi everyone,

    Well I wasnt expecting this at all, but I am so happy and can relax that everything seems to be healthy and growing well :) :)

    I have just been for the blood test for the combitest (for Downs) as here in Holland you do a blood test (at 10 weeks) and the measurement of the neck (around 11-14 weeks) and then they calculate the chance of Downs (my boyf and I agreed before we were even pregnant that we would at least do this test to check the %).

    I was just expecting that she would take the blood, but she said, lets do a scan to make sure everything is well and to make sure your dates are correct... so with a big smile up I went onto the bench and lied down.... and there my baby was lying comfortably.

    The woman then pushed on my stomach and little Mini began to move their little legs and arms and then progressed to have the hiccups, haha, so cute :cloud9:

    And she moved me forward by 3 days.... she said that at the next scan they can double check these dates again.

    Here are my pics....

    Thanks :hugs:

    I have to go back in just over 2 weeks time to measure the neck (as this is done by another medical practice and not the midwife) and at this point the blood test results will be in and they can give us the %. Praying and keeping the faith that everything is OK ;)
