After arriving in DC yesterday, we had to get up at 3 am to drive up to New York City. We got to NYC around 8:30 am, had breakfast, and then rested for a little while before leaving to go view the party room at Sprinkles where my NYC baby shower will be held.
At 1pm, I had my nuchal translucency scan and my baby girl was a little show off. She moved around for a while and went to sleep as usual. The doctor had me raise my leg and bend it at the knee and move around a bit to do her scan. Her little heart was beating away. Her scan, of course, was in the normal range. Being that I had MaterniT21 at ten weeks, I already knew my baby had no genetic abnormalities.
My mother went with me to my scan and was excited to see how big this baby has grown since my scan she saw at 10 weeks. Her spine is now visible and her gums/jaw bone/teeth are forming. It is simply amazing to watch her develop !
After the scan, I met with the MFM High Risk doctor. She went over my medical records and she went over her plan of care for my pregnancy and my wishes/ birth plan. I was then sent to Quest Diagnostics for bloodwork.
My mom and I met one of my friends and we went to Amy Ruth’s for dinner and then over to Make My Cake to get cake slices. This celebrity bake shop makes all my event cakes including my birthday cake every year.
I wanted to check with the owner about the picture I sent her of the cake I want for my shower.
We then came back down to Time Square and then went to Garretts to get popcorn for my sister and my brother n law.
I am now completely exhausted and am watching television. I have my monthly OB appointment tomorrow.
