My bp was 124/82 which is really good for me since it was 154/98 at my first OB appt. I got to hear the heartbeat. The NT fold was 1.8 and anything below 3 is good and I did the integrated blood screening which the results will be available in 7 to 10 days AND will be able to confirm the gender and I'm only 12weeks! Because the blood test checks the chromosomes, it will be able to verify the gender at the time too! I would truly love to be able to say it doesn't matter any way but with a late term miscarriage at 18.5 weeks and a high probability of Trisomy 18 and my youngest having autism, the results of the test will be a HUGE weight off my shoulders and I need to know at least what to prepare for. Hubby wants to know the gender but I want to be surprised and my Mom doesn't want to know. Not sure if hubby will be able to keep it a secret and I now I can't so might be easier if no one knew...I just had a positive feeling overall for once!

Great news!

I had a high blood pressure reading at my first OB visit, too, but it came down at my next one.  I have a history of pre-eclampsia, so I'm really sensitive to blood pressure readings. 

I'm glad some of the weight will be easing off your shoulders soon. . .

Mine said that they may start me on an aspirin regime at my next visit due to my preeclampsia, did yours mention it to you?

 No, they haven't.  I was under the impression that there was little they could do, prevention-wise.  I have a visit in a couple of weeks with a high risk specialist, though, so I'll see what he has to say. . .

My OB forbid me from taking asprin because it can cause the heart on the baby to not close properly... O.o

I'd probably weigh the pro's and con's, especially if you don't need it "yet"

I have a high risk visit at the end of this month. I wonder if they are going to do all this testing with me too.
