NT Scan and My Birthday!

I had a fun and eventful weekend! It started Friday afternoon with my NT scan. Everything looked normal and the Squatter was sure giving us a show. Squatter was doing flips and leg kicks the entire time. The tech was having a hard time taking the measurement. Finally she was able to measure the fold at 1.7. Glad to hear the measurement is within normal range. I will get the official results this week sometime. The tech said most likely it will be an automated message with my results – to call the number in a week for my message. They will only call me in person if it’s bad news. Now every time my cell rings with an unknown number I will have a mini freak out!

Squatter measured a couple days ahead of schedule! They sent us home with a 3D video of the Squatter. Usually the 3D images creep me out a bit but I have to admit that I watched it about 10 times this weekend. It’s so nice to see everything moving and working like it should!

Yesterday was my Birthday…the big 36. We had plans to go to dinner with friends on Saturday to celebrate but I feel so crappy in the evenings I changed it to a birthday breakfast! It was fun and I was able to eat. I made everyone go to Cracker Barrel – so yummy! Yesterday was low key – hubby took great care of me and did all our laundry. It was a nice birthday. I managed not to puke until dinner time! A record for me! I will be 13 weeks on Wednesday so I really hope I can start to enjoy food again soon!

  5. Yeah Squatter! And happy birthday! And thoughts towards a decrease in the puking. 1.7 is happy (yes I did use the calculator at perinatology.com to figure out the percentile for each of our twins this time)

  9. Happy birthday. Sounds like you got the best present of all- a nice peek at the Squatter! I'm with you on the nausea/vomiting. People keep telling me how much better I should feel now that I'm in the second trimester, and I want to punch every one of them. :)
