The Results Are In!

I really thought I wouldn't hear anything until at least this Friday since they said it would take 8-10 days from the time I had the blood draw (this is for the MaterniT21 test).  Last night as I was trying to wrangle the munchkin out of the kitchen pantry my phone rang with an unfamiliar number.  Normally I won't answer if I don't recognize the number, but since I thought it might be possible that I was getting results I picked up.

I was pleasantly surprised when she said she was calling from MUSC.  Yay!  When she said "Are you ready for some good news?" I broke into a huge smile.  She went on to tell me that everything looked perfect.  Our baby does not have any trisomies and there are no issues with the sex chromosomes.  I breathed a huge sigh of relief.  I know we need to wait for the anatomy scan to check for anything else, but knowing that 2.0 doesn't have any chromosomal abnormalities is a weight off my mind.

After going through all of that she said she had a note in there for boy or girl and asked if we want to know.  Umm... yeah!  She then told me that we're having a healthy baby....

It's a secret.  I really want to try to keep it under wraps from family and friends until we do our photos next month, so no reveal here or on facebook just yet.  I guess you'll just have to wait and see  :)


  1. What a relief. I too know what I am having since being in the hospital for the last few days they did a detailed ultrasound and were able to tell. But same as you, I am waiting to tell. I mean, I just announced my pregnancy at 14 weeks, so I thought I would let that sink in, lol. I say 50% chance boy 50% chance girl, I am bound to be right:)

  2. Hooray for healthy baby!! I can't wait to see the pictures :-)

    1. I just hope that I look pregnant by then and not just chubby.

    3. Sheesh. I can't type.

      You never looked 'chubby' your whole first pregnancy so I doubt that will be the case!

  3. Yay! So glad everything looks good :) Can't believe you already know what it is!! I can't wait to hear!
