I hit the 18 week mark today and had an ultrasound and got the INFO that I’ve been dying for. Yes. The genders. My bets were on two boys (secretly what I was hoping for). Husband said one of each. Well he was right. Baby A is a girl and Baby B is a boy. I think ultimately this is perfect. It’s the homerun pregnancy in that 1) I don’t have to be jealous that someone else has a baby of the other sex – i.e. no more yearning for further pregnancy hopefully! 2) I can ease my mind in that there is no more pressure for infertility treatments in the future. So we’re happy. Very happy. And see these ultrasound photos. There is some serious weener and flap action going on. It’s so amazing that you can see it like this!
More importantly though is that our risk assessment for midtrimester was low for both Down syndrome and Trisomy 18. Down risk was 1:5,100 and Trisomy was 1:10,000. I think we’re done with any further testing on this matter.
