All is well. I got my early risk screening results back and they are normal. My numbers were, to quote the nurse, that of a 20 year old. My Trisomy 13 & 18 was 1:10,000 and my Trisomy 21 was also 1:10,000. I had no doubt that everything was fine. Truth is, I only did the screening because it meant I got to see ultrasound pictures lol.
My belly is protruding a little, but I am thankful that I still, for the most part, fit comfortably in my normal non-work clothes. Sometimes as I sit at the computer or lounge around watching TV my pants feel a little tight so I undo my button but so far that's about it. My work clothes are another story. So far, I can still wear my suits, but 3 of them I have to use a safety pin and wear a longer shirt over the waist. 2 of my others still fit normally, but that probably isn't going to last long. I have noticed I'm overflowing in my bras too. Hee! I went to the mall today and did a little looking around. I tried on a bra (D cup OMG!) at the Motherhood store and it fit. It fit so well that I didn't buy it because I figure I still have a heck of a long way to grow and I was afraid I'd outgrow it by the time baby gets here. Normally I'm a small C cup, which is perfect in my opinion for someone of my body frame, but trying on and fitting in a D was thrilling. hee It's the little things. I hope they don't get ridiculously big though...
I really hope I carry a cute little round bump in front with no other gain anywhere else. Since I'm on the topic of wishful thinking, I would also like to ask for a healthy, but smaller baby. Somewhere around the 6-7 pound range. None of the 9-11 pound baby craze my family seems to have. Seriously. I was 8.5, my sister was 9, my 1st nephew was 10 and my second nephew is going to be somewhere around 10.5-11. No thank you.
My anatomy scan appointment is scheduled for Feb 17th and I can't friggin wait.
