12w5d - Time for an u/s and a nickname

Today we had another appointment with our ob/gyn for an u/s. All is well with the little one, our Insider. For the first time, it really looked like a tiny human, wriggling about this way and that.

The Insider is 6 cm from head to bottom, about the width of my palm. Dr. Sunshine pointed out the beating heart, the developing brain, stomach, bladder. I'm amazed she could make all that out from the scan, but I trust her experience and skill. All looks well, and we were very happy to hear that.

Next was an attempt to measure the nuchal fold. It took some patience, because the Insider wouldn't sit still. Not that we minded looking at the screen some more.
After a while, the doctor did manage to get a measurement - 1 mm - which is very good.

I had blood drawn for a triple test, and will get the results next week.  If those results are good too, we won't be doing any invasive testing. If not, we'll see.

To say we're overjoyed is an understatement.

Mac wouldn't stop wiggling either for the nuchal fold test. And he is a great big 7 year old now!

That's fantastic news, Lut! I'm so happy for you and your Insider. (And very pleasantly surprised that you're already at the end of your 13th week! My, how other people's pregnancies fly!;))

Yes, it is amazing how much the ultrasound professionals can make out, isn't it?
