We went for our NT scan today. I have been worried about it for a while even though I knew it was a routine test and that we had nothing to worry about. The doctor said that in this test they want the baby to cooperate and turn to the side so that they can measure behind his head. She said if I normally do as I am told or if I am head strong. D laughed out loud!!LOL I am a stubborn and I always know best! D is the one that listens to advice and is more open minded. So the doctor told us that this one test will give us an insight into what our baby will be like personality wise. LOL
Once we were ready Peanut appeared on the screen and he looked so big compared to a week ago, he is now 5 cm, last week he was 3 cm!! He was moving about and we were able to see his little hands moving and feet kicking. At one stage he looked like he was waiving at us and was bringing his hand to his face. It was incredible!! It was the most beautiful sight in the world. Then the doctor moved the wand about to try get a good picture of peanut's profile and in no time she got a really good picture. She said he was definitely like his daddy!!LOL She measured the part behind his neck and all looks great. She then saw his nose and his long spine and all looks as it should be. She was so happy that she did not advise us to do the blood test as I am 29 and all looks so great. We both felt so relieved that our little Peanut is healthy and strong.
Now the fun part..Dr.S got a good view of his "bits" and she confirmed what she thought she saw last week... we are having a BOY!!! She moved the wand about and pointed to something and said that she saw it from all views and therefore she believes it's not the umbilical cord or his leg/foot. We wait and see but we trust her knowledge in this matter and so far we are getting excited at the thought of having a little boy.. our Gabriel! We would have been as happy with a girl, as long as our Peanut is healthy and happy that's all that counts!!!
