NT Scan

About a week and a half ago we went in for our scheduled NT Ultrasound Scan. It was pretty cool. I honestly wasn't even that worried. I think for the first time in a long time I actually wasn't worried about anything pregnancy related... weird. The baby was being a little stinker. She/he was so cozy and was sleeping. Didn't want to move so we could get see the spot behind the neck that we needed to see. So we poked at it (God I can't wait to stop calling it an "it") for about fourty minutes until it finally flipped and we got what we needed.

Anywho everything looked great. I got my bloodwork results back last week and they came out "negative" is what my nurse said. I was expecting a ratio, so I'm not sure. Whatever. I'll ask my doc tomorrow at my appointment.

I meant to update last week but I've been feeling like death. Migranes. In the Emergency room for dehydration. More migranes. I read that you might get headaches but shit! This is awful. I still feel awful. Last Sunday (meaning, not yesterday but a week ago) I got a mild headache. I just brushed it off thinking it'd go away. Well it didn't. It got progressively worse throughout the week and by Wednesday night I could feel a migrane coming on. Thursday I woke up feeling like I got ran over by a freakin semi! I had THE worst migrane ever, super dizzy and nauseous because of those two. I was puking. I felt so awful I called my nurse right away. She called me back and told me I should go into the ER cause it sounds like I could be dehydrated. I didn't want to so I waited it out maybe an hour to see if I started feeling any better after taking some Tylonol. I didn't, so I told Husband it's time to go to the hospital. Ugh. I went, got some IV and pain meds, they took a ton of blood and ran urine tests. Everything came back fine. Even got to hear the baby's heartbeat on their piece of crap doppler! It was good at 172. They sent me home with some pain meds and I went on my way. I'm still not feeling good but soooo much better than Thursday. Hell, even much better than Saturday. I was in so much pain again Saturday that I actually called Husband and my mom crying. This is honestly worse than ANY morning sickness I experienced.

Anyway, here are the Ultrasound pics. While waiting for the baby to flip the tech took some 3-D ones too! So awesome!
