Normal Chromosomes!!!

Shes a little 46 XX Baby!!!!!  A good number when it comes to genetic material.

Its funny - after the ultrasound I realized I was already pretty bonded.

There was something about seeing a structurally normal heart that meant to me that she wouldn't have to have repeated surgeries in her first year that to me was the turning point.  If she had downs after that point, sure I would be scared of all the challenges and the chances of stillbirth, but I wouldn't let her go.  I made peace with it before I got the results.

I still had the need-to-know aspect of my brain and I am glad I did the amnio anyway (still crossing fingers for no delayed complications) because I can't tell you how good I feel right now.

Its finally becoming real.  I am going to have a baby.

(happy tears!)
