He told me to think about whether or not I wanted the prescreening blood test next visit. Roy and I haven't decided for sure, but we are thinking not. Doc said out of 1,000 women who take it, 50 will get a positive, and only 1 out of those 50 will actually have a problem, the others are false positives. If my test was positive, then I would have to decide whether or not to have an amniocentesis... To me, it seems unnecessary since even if the baby did have Downs or something else, we wouldn't do anything but keep it and love it, and prenatal care and infant care is the same no matter what, so why put myself through the possibility of worrying over a likely false positive. I am only 31, so I only have a 1 in 900 chance to have a Downs baby, and no one in my family or Roy's has Downs or any other neural defect. They can also see some signs during the ultra sound, which will be at week 20. Would love to hear your thoughts on this...
Oh ya, I did ask about how come my belly seems to grow overnight so I really look pregnant, and then all of a sudden look 3" smaller... he said that is based on my own bowels and systems shrinking and expanding, and it has nothing to do with the size of the uterus. Makes sense to me.
I got my hair cut yesterday. Super cute, I think. I got 2-3" cut off, so it's just at my shoulders right now, and has long layers, but flips out. Ya, I know, it's just a shorter version of what I always have... call me a creature of habit!
Below are a few pics of the wedding jewelry I have made. The bride is looking over them and will let me know which she likes most. Which do you like most?
