Baby #2 ultrasound update

Today was my nuchal translucency ultrasound that screens for Down syndrome and trisomy 18. It went very well. The baby looks good and the scans and blood work were negative leaving us with a 1 in 18,000 chance of Downs. The baby had its hands up to its face and feet crossed at the ankles, just like Callie did when we had this ultrasound with her. The goatee looking thing by the chin is actually the baby's hand. The baby was lazy and didn't move much even when prodded by the sonographer. I say it was just tired and hungry since I hadn't eaten or a whole day.
Callie saw real rain for the first time since she was old enough to understand and can now say the word rain. As soon as I got there to pick her up she was telling me about the rain. So cute. I didn't get any photos of Callie and rain as it stopped by the time I arrived. Today was better than yesterday even though it wasn't too good. Counting the days until the yucky sick feelings go away.
