First scan

There is my little bean! We went for our first scan today and according to them I am measuring 13w 4days. So only 4 days out.

That now makes my due date the 9th Feb, though with the c-section it will be more like the last week in January – but if my boys are anything to go by anytime from 36 weeks is a possibility!

I love getting the first scan done, it makes it all the more real and reassures me that everything is ok. They are happy that it is growing as it should and measuring as it should.

Didn’t really like the pushy midwife who took blood for the test of down syndrome – she was asking what I would do if the test came back high risk as course of action would be to get an amnio – which involves getting a needle stuck into your tummy to get some amniotic fluid to test, this carries a risk of miscarriage.
I told her point blank that I would refuse the amnio, and worry about it, if and when, and she was all like well I counsel people who have found out their child has downs, and why would you take the test if you won’t follow the course or action -the amnio – again I told her I wouldnt get the amnio, I wouldnt terminate either if something was to be wrong and again that we would worry about it if I needed to and in any case the test came back low with the boys so I can’t see why it would suddenly become high risk this time around.

Urgh!

There was a bit of an atmosphere after that and I couldn’t wait to get out, chances are I will see here again during the course of my pregnancy so meh.

Anyhow, all is going well and that is the main thing, have my appointment for my 20 week scan and just need tonwsit until about 26 weeks to try get a private scan to find out the sex 🙂
