A Little Anxious

It was so nice last night to finally feel the little guy move. It was different from when I was pregnant with Isaac, much more pronounced. I halfway wonder if I've been too busy to notice the flutters I remember feeling before. This one also seems much less active ... I'm sure I'll eat my words once he/she is out! ;0)

Unfortunately we also received some news that has me a little anxious. My blood tests results for Down Syndrome came back higher than average ... which just means my doctor is recommending me to see a perineonatologist (sp?) for more testing. Given my age, past miscarriages and certain levels of hormones they come to some 'at-risk ratio' that determines whether further testing needs to be done. While I know that more often than not, further testing reveals all is well I still worry. I also don't relish the thought of an amniocentesis ... who would! The idea of an incredibly long needle/tube entering my belly into my uterus to aspirate some fluid makes me shudder. Our appointment for a consult is on the Friday morning we leave for Florida ... it gives us something chew on while we fly out. We'll keep you posted.


  1. I hope all is well. Enjoy Florida.

  2. Hang in there. It'll work out. You guys are in our thoughts and prayers. Florida will be good for you all.
