Then I thought about all the details that happened. It could not be possible that I would have missed my baby's nasal bone when I was scanning him before. I decided to get checked out again at my work, went to see a different doctor and a nuchal certified technologist to see if they could get a different result. I was told my baby was fine. Measuring 2 weeks and 4 days ahead of his estimated due date, but healthy. I wasn't surprised that he would be huge. My husband's family were known to deliver macrosomic babies. Still, I walked in my OB's clinic with a sinking stomach. The doctor assured me that the specialist was just being an alarmist, my blood test results showed I was negative for Trisomy 18 and 21. I was so happy, I could not get myself to get mad at the specialist who told me that she was confident with her abilities and that she suggest I do something invasive to make sure my baby is normal.

|The candy melt for icing had to be pink of course!|
|I made the cake coat too thick so it took some time to dry|
By the way, I am now 125 lbs! I gained 15 lbs for the last 20 weeks. OB says It's ok since I was underweight to begin with. I did not care at all. Having a 10 lb baby is the least of my concern. As long as he is healthy, I am happy. Tonight, I will get myself a pedicure. That is, if I can still reach my toes without hurting my belly.
