Better Odds!

I just got a voice mail (and actually a letter in the mail) from Joan, the genetic counselor at MN Perinatal, today. Her voice mail said that this baby's odds have actually improved! This baby's odds of having Down Syndrome is 1 in 7,900 (Danni's was 1 in 3,700), and the risk of Trisomy 18 is 1 in 10,000 (Danni's was 1 in 5,000). They don't do the spina bifida test until 15 weeks though, so we didn't get those risks this time.

I love getting good news about this baby, it means so much more this time around to keep hearing that our baby is healthy. Of course, it was always meant a lot to hear good news about Danni, and that she was holding on and looking good, but after loosing her, its sets our hearts at ease to hear more and more about how this baby will be just fine.

12 Weeks, 4 Days
Sad that my belly button is already starting to pop
(That didn't happen until about 19 weeks with Danni)
