Best morning wake-up call ever:
Our genetic counselor called this morning to let us know that the results of our amnio, and everything turned out normal! Yay!
This means that Baby Z tested normal on nearly all chromosomal disorders, including Down syndrome, trisomy 13, trisomy 18, and sex chromosome abnormalities (such as Turner syndrome and Klinefelter syndrome). Since an amnio is more than 99 percent accurate in diagnosing these conditions, J and I are pretty thrilled by these results.
In other news, J and I and Baby Z are on our way to San Francisco over the long Labor Day weekend! I’ve been to almost everywhere else in California but have never been to San Francisco, and since J used to live out in the Bay Area during his management consultant years after college, he’s going to show me all his old haunts this weekend. I was originally hoping to do some kind of a wine tour, but now with Debbie Downer here in my belly, I guess we’re sticking with a food tour instead 🙂
See you back on this blog next week! Have a safe and happy Labor Day!
