Nuchal Translucency Scan
Yesterday our wonderful surrogate had our 12-week Nuchal translucency scan & today we received the report, we are pleased to say everything is looking great.
So far through this pregnancy Harry is being a great distraction & unlike our pregnancy with Harry we don’t have the time to think about it every minute of every day, because of this we seem to be able to enjoy the journey & stress less about things that are out of our control.
We just love this scan photo of our little baby WAM2 waving.
There is a single, live intrauterine pregnancy. The foetus is in unstable presentation. The placenta is along the posterior uterine wall extending up to the fundus. No evidence of placenta previa seen. Foetal movements and heart activity are present. FHR ---- 167 B / M. CRL measures 5.4 cm. which corresponds to 12.3 weeks. Nuchal translucency is 0.7 mm. Presence of nasal bone (2.0 mm.) is observed. Ductus venosus wave form is normal. There is no evidence of tricuspid regurgitation. FOETAL ANOMALY SCAN:
