Nuchal translucency and PPAP-A test tomorrow

I am so nervous about taking these tests. I am so afraid it's going to show something wrong.

I know it's not necessarily accurate, so even if the test comes back high risk for Down Syndrome or Trisomy 18 or 13, it doesn't mean the baby will have it.

I have told myself that I wasn't going to let myself get attached to this baby until we found out whether everything was all right or not, but I can't help it. I already am. I love him or her or want to have him/her in my arms come the end of November.

I hope we get the good ultrasound tech tomorrow. She will tell me what she sees. I wonder how long I will have to wait for the bloodwork results.

My friend's doppler came last week. We've been using it almost every day. Mostly the heart rate has been in the 120s, but today, Brian found it for just a second at 168, then the baby moved away from him.

Anyway, I guess I'm just rambling because of nerves, but please wish us luck tomorrow.
