Now I can relax

I appologise in advance that most of my posts recently have been about the baby... Sorry!

Anyhoo... had ANOTHER scan today.
There was a heart beat *thumbsup*! Bubby was wriggling around quite a lot which was totally cute!!! But apparently a pain for the sonographer... see she had to find this tiny wee little vein in baby's brain and measure the blood flow through this vein to see if baby is anaemic or not (that is the main side effect of that nasty virus I had a while back).
After a number of attempts bubby held still for about 5 seconds... long enough to get the picture and measure, phew!!
The results... blood flow is within the normal range for a baby of 16 weeks gestation! WOO HOO!!! So we have been cleared!! That was the last of the parvo related scans! I am so relieved that baby wont need a blood transfusion, nor will he/she have to be born 6 weeks early!! Everything can now proceed normally!!! YEEHAA!!!!
I do however have another scan in 2 weeks... the normal 18w one!

Praise God for a healthy baby!!!!! I am a very happy Mummy today :)
