We had our N/T scan today- and admittedly I was pretty nervous going into it. It was my first time having an abdominal ultrasound, and as the tech put the gel on my stomach I just prayed we'd see the baby looking active and healthy.


I cried the entire time- watching the little babe moving around with its heart beating strongly (167 heart rate). He/she looks like a real little person! The doctor said everything looked really great from what he could see. From my research one of the things that the N/T scan checks for is the level of fluid behind the neck, and anything over about 2.5-3mm can put you into a higher risk category. Our measurement was 1.2mm- which sounded perfect to me! I wished I could lie there all day watching the baby move around- it was so much fun to see.

I've been calculating my due date based on the day I am pretty positive we conceived- which puts me at 11w6d pregnant, due November 29th. However they plugged in my due date based on my last period- which puts us at November 25th- and the doctor said the baby was measuring right on track with that due date (measuring around 12w3d- must have BC's tall genes and my overachieving nature!) Of course time will tell and the baby will come when he/she is ready, but it was kind of fun to measure a bit ahead of schedule.

And now, without further adieu, I bring you baby Lambert, at either 11w6d or 12w3d, however you want to look at it:

Hi everyone!
