Presenting our baby...

Well today was the big day of our Nuchal Scan - the one where screening is undertaken for various abnormalities. There were a couple of glitches on the way. Our GP filled out the wrong form and a new one had to be sourced... and then we found out that I should have had the screening blood test a week ago, instead of today as advised by the Midwife at the local hospital. This meant that the Doctor in attendance could only give us a preliminary report. BUT she said that everything appears to be "moving in the right direction" and that there were no obvious abnormalities found. It was quite amazing to see our baby moving about on the screen and at one stage it rested its head onto its arm as if the whole ultrasound process was far to exhausting. So now we have to wait for the blood results which will hopefully come withing a week.

When we got home I showed the boys the ultrasound picture and Mitch was very excited asking if that was his baby, Harry asked to play the computer (grin)

Hope every one has a happy Easter - I know we will,
