Had my 12 week scan yesterday which was really cool! (If not TOTALLY weird!)
Seeing 'Baby Nutella' waving his/her arms about for the scan was incredible -and still slightly unbelievable...Even though I SEE a baby, it's still VERY weird to think I am carrying a little life inside of me.
S/he has 2 arms, 2 legs, fingers and toes, a fully formed skull and a heartbeat, so all good
Only thing I'm worried about is my Downs stats. Because of my age I started with probablity of 1:400 which really worried me. The measurements they did yesterday and my bloods changed the stats to 1:837
My husband was really pleased with this -as far as he's concerned, the odds have halved...which is true. But I've heard people say their's changed to 1:32000 etc etc and it's just got me a but worried.
The sonographer said that they consider 1:150 to be high risk so my stats are low risk.
I understand that if I'm 'low risk' then they wont offer me aminiocentisis...and I wouldnt want to push for it, what with the chance of miscarriage, if it's not been recommended as something I should have. But I'm still a bit worried
I just want little Baby Nutella to be alright
Are there any other Mums or Mums-to-be out there with similar stats at my age, and everything turned out ok?
