Update on the baby situation

Ok, breathes a sigh of relief. Measurement of the neck folds have indicated a chance of Down's syndrome of less than 1 in 500. Considering that the 'normal' risk for woman of Mrs M's age is 1 in 52, that's a pretty big difference. It is actually the same 'normal' risk for a woman 10 years younger, so that is a pretty positive sign. All other growth signs are normal, the baby is floating about just fine and is starting to really look human, with a little face and hands and stuff. Funnily enough, I got a very strange premonition when I looked at the scan that it is a boy, but actually I don't mind either way.
