Waiting

The week has literally flown by. Work has--mercifully!--been really crazy, with tons of things happening, so it has kept my mind busy.

I went in Tuesday and signed all of the consent paperwork, and also looked over the results from my screening tests. I have gotten great comfort from seeing my numbers, and then comparing them to women on the various boards who have had much worse results, but perfectly healthy babies. The doctors that I am going to are very experienced, and their miscarriage rate is very low--almost approaching that of amnio. That eased my mind a bit. I also learned on Tuesday that they likely will be able to take the sample transabdominally, rather than transvaginally, which is also some comfort to me, because the infection rates are thought to be somewhat lower transabdominally.

So, tomorrow morning is the big test. And then we wait. The results probably won't be in until Monday or Tuesday. I would get them in 24-48 hours if the test wasn't right before the weekend. Ugh. Hopefully, the test will go just fine, and the results will also be fine.
