Just wanted to find out what experiences you all had when you went for this first trimester scan. They are saying we may also find out the s_x. I have to go on Monday 6/2. I'm a little scared and hoping everything is ok with this little one. Comments appreciated!

I had an NT scan at 1 weeks 4 days, everything look great with the baby and they gave me a due date and such based on how big the baby was and all that.. they couldn't tell the gender but my 20 scan said girl :) good luck with finding out the gender.try not to be to nervous about everything (i know easier said than done) the NT scan is not a diagnosis... so if they tell you your baby has some extra fluid or whatever dont freak out, same goes for blood tests the percentage for false positives is astonishingly high. I chose not to have any blood tests done just because in my opinion I felt there was no reason to stress about that stuff because no matter what shes my baby and I would love her not matter what. anyway, I kinda went off on a tangent lol sorry. good luck Im sure everything will be great. good luck, congrats on getting to see your little one on Monday. ultra sounds are always neat :)

I will be 12 weeks 5 days when I go. I'm just nervous being older (ugh!) and the last time I was pg at the 2nd Trimester scan they told me my dd could have Trisomy 18. Anyway, she didn't but it just blew me away b/c I was expecting everything to be ok. I can live with Downs, not trisomy 18- that's a horrible death sentence. I will try to be positive and congrats to you on your little girl!!!

Heather lol i thought wow a big baby at 1 week ,,congrats.......i just had my NT scan last week i am 12 weeks preg..DOnt be nervous Cindholhm just sit back and watch and enjoy the little one.....ANyway my test came back that the risk of ds is the same for me as it would be for a 20 yr old......thats low i forget the numbers but not much of a risk...MY blood work was good too...I dont know if i should have a cvs or an amnio..I am not that scared about ds but some of the other trisomys are horrible and a death sentence like you said Cindholm..........I am worried about the risk of mc with these invasive test....I also dont like suprises omg i am going nuts love to all
