This is the update from 4 weeks ago. So two weeks ago we went to see the genetics counselor and a level 2 ultrasound. The genetics counselor just went over our histories of the families and the different types of chromosome problems that this baby might have. She said the only way to make sure this baby doesn't have a chromosome problem was an amino but I refused it because I didn't want to take the chance of losing this child too.
Then we had the ultrasound the cysts that they saw two weeks early on the brain has dissolved and disappeared. But they are still on concerned with the umbilical cord only have one blood vessel verse too. They high risk doctor came in and said that there is a little extra skin behind the neck but he isn't sure that is a sign of downs or not because of the way the baby was positions.
Today we had an echo of the baby and the heart looks good. But the baby was cooperating with the position to get the last image they needed so have to go back in 2 weeks. But they said that everything looks good from what they saw today. So we are happy but still nervous but I don't think the nerves will ever come down until this baby is born crying or breathing.
So I will update more in two weeks when I go back to the obgyn and have the other echo.


  1. I wish this could be easier for you. I refused an amnio too. I'm glad things are looking good so far. I hope they get a good clear view of the heart next time and that it is fine.
