> that all sounds like a lot of worry, and I know how anxiety can make you feel like a rat in an electrified cage, ... but it's not a real problem until it's a real problem, you know? Right now it's just worry for a possible (improbable?) future scenario. Try to see it from that perspective, if only a little bit. It's equally possible you'll have a perfectly healthy baby in a few months!

Thanks Tabitha!

I was freaking out a lot yesterday and getting depressed about losing my baby.

I thought about it some more and I think that I'll just skip the nuchal translucency ultrasound altogether.

I'll still get the NIPT re-test and hope that I'm in the successful 60%, but the screening process is really stressful for me.

Chances are that things are good. I would rather not risk a false positive.

I'll get the anatomy ultrasound at around 18 weeks.

I'm reading that the longer the pregnancy goes, the lower the chance that something is wrong. That makes sense because genetic issues cause the majority of miscarriages. Nature usually sorts it out by herself by preventing babies with major issues from being born. If the issues are not major enough to cause a miscarriage, then chances are, better than not, that they are mild enough to not be a major issue.

I want to enjoy my pregnancy, not be all depressed about it. I guess I'll just take my chances. It's actually less stressful this way.

How are things with you (and everyone else)?
