First trimester screening

We went for our nuchal translucency screen and the results came back normal. The doctor did not tell me the exact risk but looking at the measurement and comparing it with Laetitia's, it seemed more optimistic. Lae was 1.7mm at 7wks3days and baby's is 1.1mm at 7 wks4days. It seems like this baby is more active then his/her elder sis. Thank God for all the good news today and that our baby is healthy and active.

Some new stats on the baby:-
Head perimeter - 78mm
Tummy circumference - 70mm
Thigh bone - 8mm
Crown Rump Lenght - 64mm

Everything looks fine and here is a picture of the ultrasound.

As for me, I am feeling slightly better. Etienne and I just came back from a 4 days trip to Prague and I managed to be out and about for an average of 6 hrs a day (from 11am to 3pm and then from 7pm to 9pm). The rest of the time was spent sleeping in the hotel. It was a good thing that I changed and upgraded us to a better hotel in the city since it made it easier to get back for my afternoon naps. I am still taking medication to control the nausea and vomiting but I can feel my strength coming back.
