Tomorrow's The Day

I don't know how I'll make it through the day. Tomorrow is the big ultrasound. I need to call my nurse this morning and make sure she took care of sending my medical records and Quad Screen. Tomorrow, assuming open legs, we find out the gender. Tomorrow, we find out if there are soft markers for Trisomy 18, and, if so, decide whether to have an amnio. I think it's going to come down to stats. If my chance of miscarriage is higher than the chance of Trisomy 18, I will likely decline one. But Alan and I are both people who do better armed with tons of knowledge, so I can't say anything for sure. I'm so nervous that I am afraid I won't sleep all night tonight. Ander is staying with my mom, since our appointment is at the crack of dawn (okay, people, 8 a.m. is the crack of dawn to me) in the morning.

If we find out the gender, and it's clearly correct, we'll share. If there's doubt, we won't. And we don't share the name until birth...not that we have one. Of course, we always welcome name suggestions...especially as we don't have a name yet. Sigh.

Pray, wish, or do whatever it is you do that everything is okay.
