You’re growing well

Though mummy just hit 30, daddy wants to be sure that all is well for you and me. So I took the first trimester screening package to make sure that I do not fall under the high risk pregnancy category.

Blood test was done at week 9 and an ultrasound scan of nuchal translucency (NT) was carried out around week 13 day 6. The blood test was not as painful as I’d thought, though three tubes of blood was drawn out from my left arm.

The scan took quite a long time, mostly due to the long long wait for the doctor to come and the other because you were not in the right position for the doctor to see your nose. Mummy had to drink plenty of water and attempt to cough a couple of times so that you’ll move to the right position for the doctor to scan.

All results from the above tests were good and the risk of Down Syndrome is very very very very low. Daddy and Mummy are both very pleased to hear that.

Grow well baby. We’ll meet soon!

Love,
Mummy

Upon arriving at the clinic on my appointment time, things just happened in a flash, I did what I was told and then waited an hour and half for the gynae to arrive.

The process went something like this: Continue reading “First visit to Gynae”
