Beautiful Bert

The news from this morning’s NT scan is excellent.

Bert measured 6.4 cm, which had him at about 12w4d, which is pretty close to the 12w3d that he is. His due date is still October 30. The scan together with my MSS bloods puts our risk for Trisomy 21 at 1 in 25,000 – pretty good odds!

Here’s a photo from the US:

I’m sure that the sonographer tells everyone that their baby is lovely, but she used the words “beautiful”, “perfect”, and “photogenic” so much that I think Bert must be particularly lovely (not that I’m biased or anything). She even took extra photos because he was showing off with cute baby poses.

I’ll try to figure out how to convert the DVD so I can upload some of that too, but for now this grainy pic will have to do!

  16. Great pics! Our little one never would pose for the camera, so I think you got lucky!

    Also, you are allowed to be biased about your baby. I think it is required for all parents!

  17. Congratulations on Bert! I was excited to find your blog via iclw because I, too, am a PCOSer and am about 5 days behind you in pregnancy. I’m due November 4th.

    Love your belly pics, too. Wish I could say the same about mine but it’s not even close to being cute.

    Anyway, nice to meet you and I’m looking forward to following along with your pregnancy!

  18. That is a great scan pic! It’s so amazing how different it is from what I saw at 10w3d. I can’t believe they change that much in 2 weeks! Enjoy, congrats, and happy ICLW!

  19. What a great pic… congrats, and here’s to a healthy pregnancy.
