Met with my ob/gyn to have my pap & find out all of my results: bloodwork, great; all negatives where negatives need to be; found out once again that I'm AB+ ...and, oh yeah: the official estimate due date: Jan 8th. That baby implanted fast! I'm 9 weeks tomorrow!
And, here's something interesting: I learned about Maternit21, the blood test that can be done as early as 10 weeks & via the mother's blood, it checks for chromosomal abnormalities...and get this: the gender! Part of me would love to know as soon as possible (mostly, to prepare Evelia as she refuses to even fathom a sister!), but I'm also leaning toward waiting until the 18-week u/s...you know, the big surprise. I declined all of the other genetic tests, but this blood test might be interesting to have done...just for peace of mind, I suppose. Next appt is July 1st, so I won't know anything until mid-July, anyway. Hopefully this perpetual yukky-gaggy-exhaustion-headache will have subsided by then... Ha!
