Blood test

We've been waiting for blood screen results.

This is the initial screen that represents our chances of things like the baby couldn't wait to tell me. That was my clue into how much it had been bothering her.

Our friends in Seattle, the Ex-Neighbors, went through a different experience. Their son is fine but the initial screen said differently. I think that was lurking in the corner of FB's mind along with other thoughts: junior having two heads, being too much like it's father and other horrific abnormalities.

If the results are not good we would then have to have more extensive testing done to find out more. This would involve drawing amniotic fluid which can possibly cause problems.

Fabulous Babe called me today at work. The results were all fine. She's very relieved.

So far this pregnancy landscape is rife with landmines which we seem to be required to tapdance through. God willing they'll all be duds.
