Great news! The blood work is already back from my nuchal scan. This determines your risk factor for Down's and the Trisomy's I discussed a post or two ago.
At my age (38 UGH) I had a risk factor of 1 in 176 for a Down's baby before the blood work. After blood work I am 1 in 2,726....AWESOME.
Risk factor for either of the Trisomy's at my age before bw was 1 in 275. After bw 1 in 5,956!!!!!
The nurse said that was FABULOUS!!!!!!! She said that puts me in the category of a pregnant TWENTY year old rather than my age. My first thought is gee....I wish I felt like a pregnant TWENTY year old....well and still married with a husband etc....ha!ha!ha! Not that I'm knockin' that don't get your panties in a twist and leave me nasty comments....Oh, and could I have the BODY of a pregnant 20 something??? Yeah, didn't think so.
Anyway, I couldn't leave the ole blog for a week and not share GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!
YEAH BABY...we're nice and healthy so far and we're gonna stay that way!
