Well this morning we set off at 8.15am for the hospital, I was pretty nervous.
Arrived in plenty of time then they doctor took me through to the scan room. It was a lovely doctor who I had seen before on one of my hyperemesis admissions, Dr Holmes. He didn't waste any time and got right down to scanning where we saw a lovely strong heart beat I was so relieved as part of me thought it wasn;t going to be there.
When he put the needle in it was a lot sorer than I thought it was going to be and I did struggle to stay still but I couldn't look as he extracted the amniotic fluid, hubby said he took quite a lot. When he finally removed the needle he rescanned me and said there was still plenty of fluid around the baby. he also pointed out our baby's stomach and lungs and showed us its face eyes and the lens in its eye it was very interesting.
I was still a bit sore and went to bed when I got home for a lie down and slept for 2 hours.
Will get a call with some results in a few days but the main important one will be in about 3 weeks. x
