These few weeks are when we are getting the nuchal translucency/ultrasound screenings. Basically I:
- go in for a blood draw before I hit 2nd trimester
- do an ultrasound with the fancier hospital sonogram machines - it takes much better images and they do a test where they measure a few things including your cervix length and the space between the baby's skull and neck. The thinner it is the less likely it has down syndrome. The OBGYN is the not the one who does this test.
- do another blood test in 2nd trimester
