Good news all around!

First off, thank you all for your support. You're such a wonderful group of ladies!!!

I called my peri's office this morning and they said to come in for peace of mind. They did a quickie u/s and Nugget was just where s/he should be and moving arond a lot. Perfect!!!!! My dr. did and internal exam and said my cervix was long and closed so the bleeding wasn't coming from my uterus, and there was no new blood. Awesome. There were no signs of where it was coming from so she said to just take it easy for the next 48 hours. Phew. Now I just need to relax. Wish I could have some wine to help. LOL.

And I also got a call about my sequential screening results. This was part two of the blood work and we got great news...risk of Downs is 1:10,000, risk of Trisomy 18 is 1:10,000, and risk of neural tube defect is 1:3,000. Excellent results!!!!

And lastly, I think I felt Nugget move!!!! I've heard it feels like popcorn or "quickening" and that is just what I felt. I know it could have been gas, but after the bad night I had, I'm going with it being my baby moving :D

Ah, today is SO SO SO much better than yesterday!!!!

This is such great news! I had some spotting a couple of weekends ago at 21 weeks (isn't it crazy this stuff always happens on the weekends?) I'm glad you got some good reassurance as well as the other good news about your results :-) Bleeding or spotting is always scary and frustrating, especially when we've worked hard to get there. Hang in there... :-)

Maria,
The first thing I did when I got off the plane today, was call Katie and make sure everything was okay with you. I am so happy you got good news. Nugget is probably jumping up and down (that is what you felt) for the good news.
We are all here for you.

Maria,
Don't give Katie any ideas about Wilson being my first grandchild's name. I laughed out loud at your post.
