Cervical Scan today

I had my 1st cervical scan today. I have been trying not to get into the nitty gritty of the results, it just makes me go home and google it.

Anyway, the tech said everything looked great, it is the size and shape (?) that it should be. She again asked if we wanted to know the gender - which to me means that she totally knows. Personally, I think this info should be in bold letters on front of my file. Something like "SHE DOES NOT WANT TO KNOW, DON'T ASK AND DON'T LET IT SLIP" Am I wrong?

I would hate to find out by accident (again).

I guess since I was there, she also did a basic anatomy scan as well. The baby was moving TONS and had a nice heartbeat of 170! It is cool to see things when she points them out. I got some 3D pics as well - which I will not be sharing because the baby really looks like an alien. There is one pic that the baby is giving the thumbs up and another one that looks like it is doing "touchdown". Already got a sports fan, just like daddy lol.

I go back tomorrow for my repeat glucose test, and I am hoping to get the results of the follow-up bloodwork (screening for down's). Although, I am not sure I will be able to get them, mainly because I am only seeing a nurse, not a doc. Which now that I think about it, I really do not like. This means that the next time that I see a doc will be at my "big" u/s which is not until the second week of May.

I guess I will have to talk to the nurse tomorrow because I am sure I can't wait till my 20 week appointment to get the results of my glucose test anyway. I will ask for the doc to call me. Plus, based on the results from the bloodwork, I may have to go see a u/s specialist.

I will update more tomorrow after the appointment

Based on that heartrate- my vote is for girl! I think, from what I've heard - Colin will make a great older protective brother to a little sister. Congrats that everything went well!

I would agree with Jackie on the heart rate I would say a girl ! You will have to let us know how you are carrying in a few months . Either all out front or all over ! Then I will make my final guess if it is a boy or a girl !
Awesome that things are going well, IM so so happy for you
