Yesterday was the NT scan - to be honest I'm a little disappointed in how it all happened.
I drank my water and got the the appt. 20 mins early as requested, they took us in 10mins late, but I didn't really care, I just wanted to see that beautiful baby and relax :)
So the radiographer introduces herself, mentions the reason for the test, and then comments that this is "a Dr. H creation". I smiled and said yes, although on the inside I was thinking why does that matter and it stung a little.
So she started the scan, she was not very gentle at all, it felt like she was trying to work her way down to my spine... we could see the baby right away - kicking and squirming away. There was a beautiful profile where the baby had it's legs stretched all the way out and looked amazing - I asked if we would get a picture from this scan and was told this is a diagnostic test, then she told me she needed quiet to do her measurements.
We spent the next 20 minutes in silence, while she moved the wand around, ground in a bit, and made notes. At the end of it she handed me the towel to wipe myself off, and i asked if the baby measured on target - meaning 12w5days, she told me all results would go to my doctor and she wouldn't discuss them with me.
She handed us a u/s picture she took at the end - a blurry shot of the babies spine... I think I left the room in shock. So I sit here and wait, wondering when we will get the results - I don't know if the doctor will phone us, or if we have to wait till our follow-up appt mid-Jan. We've done the first set of blood work, the second set is due between Jan 5 and 15th.
I was so looking forward to the scan, and although I did get to see the baby, I just feel a little let down. I am a naturally inquisitive person and I really like when people explain things to me, I left feeling quite dejected. Which seems so silly because I got the see LO, who is super active and that should have let me smiling like a fool.
Tomorrow I am 13 weeks!
