12 week ultrasound scan!

My little Chickpea!

This was a successful trip to the hospital for the NT scan at 12 weeks for little baby. NT scan stands for Nuchal Translucency which helps to identify any risks of chromosomal defects including Downs Syndrome in a fetus. The scans are usually taken during the 11-14 weeks of pregnancy. They look for the thickness of soft tissue at the nape of the neck of the fetus. My results are half complete because I still have to go in for a blood draw so that they can compare the notes from both tests. So far the the ultrasound looks perfect! I could not tell you how relieved I was to hear just that. I was able to see the little chickpea swallow, move the tiny hands, wiggle.... It was amazing and my husband got to share the moment with me...
