We got the call! πŸ˜…

β€’58 Replies

The overwhelming sense of relief I felt getting the call from our midwife, brought me to tears. After our NHS screening flagged us as high risk for both Edwards & Patau, the NIPT test (which is based on DNA) came back as low risk!!! Phew!!! πŸ˜…

Now, after 8 agonising days of waiting, we can finally commit to thoughts of our future together with our rapidly growing little bouncing baby.

You can think a lot of negative thoughts in 8 days... we had to discuss whether we wanted to know the gender if the result was bad. We talked through life prospects of children with both conditions, the horrible termination options & likelihood of natural miscarriage (and how it would be handled) for a baby of 15 weeks +

Some very dark thoughts... my heart goes out fully to the poor couples who have had to handle bad news and a firm diagnosis. πŸ’• πŸ’•

The silver-lining on the passing stressful cloud, was that we now know that our little bouncing bean is a little boy!!! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ Haha!

We just hope he doesn’t inherit too many of DH’s traits, or else we will have a right tear away on our hands πŸ˜‚

So, so, so, so happy!! πŸ€— Thank you to each and every one of you who have offered such heartfelt support over this past week. You are all truly beautiful humans & I wish you all the happy endings you deserve xxx

Yay! I am so happy for you: such good news. Now you can (do your best to!) look forward and be optimistic. Wishing you a healthy and peaceful rest of pregnancy. When is your due date? xxx

Wishfully in reply to Flimzee

Positivity is my middle name from this point onwards! πŸ˜‰ We are due 15th December (Christmas baby πŸŽ„) xx

Flimzee in reply to Wishfully

Oh how lovely! That is actually my daughter’s birthday! I am only now starting to relax a bit and looking forward at 23 weeks! Good luck with it all xxx

Wishfully in reply to Flimzee

Oh wonderful! 15th December is a good day to be born ☺️

I’m glad you’ve been able to relax now (I was positive I’d be relaxed after our first scan at 7+4, but every milestone is a worry).

So that was the first trimester! It’s been relatively kind to me, but (except for when I have post-meal bloating) don’t look pregnant at all! When did you get your bump? Xx

I’m due tenth of December and a tiny bump popped out on Monday, the day I turned 15 weeks. It literally came from nowhere.

Oh brilliant! We are really close together 😊 Will see if it pops at the weekend then πŸ˜‚πŸ€ž

My husband literally said β€œwhere did that come from, I was only looking at you getting undressed last night and it wasn’t there!”

It’s not obvious when I’m dressed, thankfully, as I don’t want parents at school to know until September- my new class don’t need to be worrying all summer about their teacher going off on leave.

Flimzee in reply to Wishfully

I popped pretty early with this one (I think because everything is (ahem) looser! I didn’t want to tell people at 14 weeks but had to as people were already guessing. It was definitely bloating but in a baby bump kind of way which was fortunate! With my first I definitely had a baby bump by my 20 week scan xxx

I guessed with my oldest friend at eleven weeks when she was having her third... and all I did was drive past her walking on the street! It definitely shows more if you’ve had babies before!! πŸ˜‚

What a wonderful news! What a relief it must be. Now you can relax and enjoy your pregnancy 😊 I am really happy for both of you πŸ’–

Thank you mimisquiz77 😊x

I am soooooo happy for you!!! You deserve happiness!!!
