since my last proper photo update, i’ve had the amnio which did go very well (as amnio’s can be). the scan also confirmed that i was measuring 6 days ahead and my estimated due date was bumped forward to june 20.
so the amnio? much better than the cvs. in terms of pain and procedure, it was quicker and less painful for me. maybe because i knew what to expect, it was just not as bad as i thought. again, i made sure to rest for 3 days (no heavy lifting, though i did have to pick up Jovie of course) and i only had a few cramps/pain.
on tuesday, 10 days later (6 working days), our genetic counsellor called me with the first part of the test results – no Rett Syndrome detected in our June bug the next part of the testing (the chromosome results), will be available by the end of next week hopefully.
i still suspect that this bub is a boy, i swear i thought i saw something on the screen but the technician swiftly changed positions…. we will find out either way in the next couple of weeks through either the chromosome testing or my 20 week scan in a couple of weeks.
at 18 weeks, my morning sickness is completely gone but i need at least a 15 minute nap a day to survive. i’m loving being able to eat clean again, i’m still drinking heaps of water. i’m wearing almost 100% maternity clothes now, lucky that i’m finding bargains thanks to the summer sales!
i can feel little bub move around almost every day, there’s some definate kicks in there but he/she is alot quieter than Jasper and Jovie were at this time. my days and evenings are really busy, so i make sure to spend 10 minutes at the start and at the end of the day just concentrating on the bump.
time is going past pretty quickly, i cannot wait to meet this little one x
