13 week ultrascreen, etc...

Well, I've FINALLY been released from "pelvic rest" and "light activity"!! Hooray! The SCH that was around our vanished twin has receded enough that it's now irrelevant in comparison to our healthy baby BOY. happy.gif I can finally, finally, finally do things any "normal" pregnant woman would do (i.e. exercise and have sex!) and I'm absolutely overjoyed about it. And, I don't have to go back for an ultrasound for an entire month, which is wonderful... but I have to say that it's been amazing to see our baby dancing around every week. I'll miss that part.

As for the ultrascreen, we've been struggling with whether to do it for a couple of weeks because of the blood work aspect... Since we just lost the twin a three weeks ago, we knew I'd very likely have elevated hormone levels and we were concerned about getting a false positive.. In the end, we decided to do the nuchal fold measurement but forgo the blood work. At the office, I was confident this was the right decision, but now I'm a little nervous about it. The nuchal fold measurement was great, so my OB sees no cause whatsoever for concern. I hope we did the right thing!

As always, thanks for your support. I couldn't have made it this far without you!
