The Nuchal Translucency Screening Test

Living in a large metropolitan area, we have easy access to technology so we decided to go ahead with the test. It's non invasive and very reliable so why not, especially since it's covered under insurance. With any test like this, mom and I talked about the chances, however small, that we may get unexpected or unwanted results. As you can imagine, it's not a fun topic so we'll rely on the fact that Down Syndrome doesn't exist in our family history... at least as far as we know. $10 copay.

But the best part of the test, more baby pictures! Wow, the baby1.0 is growing incredibly fast! Mom and I just got back from a run which is now down to a fast walk (for me) and a very slow run for mom. She probably only has a couple more weeks of running left and is now moving towards more lower impact exercises. (Mom just disagreed, so we'll look into how far along you can be and still find it comfortable to run). Also, we're a bit further along than originally predicted - 13 weeks and 2 days as of today, a full week difference from the first "estimate". Our new delivery date is November 26th - Turkey Day!!

Total Baby1.0 cost as of 5/23/07: $89.60
Baby 1.0 is now 13 weeks and 2 days!
