We interupt this weekly broadcast for an exciting interim report!

Just heard from the midwife today, and we were given the "all clear" on our genetic screening tests!!  Which is very exciting news to this genetic counselling gal :)

Our risk for having a child with Down Syndrome went from my maternal age risk of 1 in 287 way down to 1 in 11000 - woohoo!!   And our risk for having a child with Neural Tube Defects went from the population risk of 1 in 600 to 1 in 4700 - woohoo!!

Needless to say we're very relieved and ever so happy!  Next up, the anatomy scan on Sept 6th.  Once we get an all clear on that ultrasound, I'll really be breathing easy.  But I am definitely feeling less concerned as the days go by.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program!

A Very Relieved Mama!
