Nuchal Results are Back

And they look nice. My particular favorite is the mere 1 in 10,000 chance that this baby has trisomy 13 or 18. The Down's risk wasn't nearly that low but was still "in range," or screen negative.


I'm watching my friend's son today (he's 15 months) in addition to D. Two kids. Wow. A taste of the future, one would hope! I'm starting to show a bit. It's easier to hide a pregnancy longer when you never really got out of the maternity clothes from the last one. I think my students are starting to suspect. We did a lab last night in which they do urinalysis on urine samples that they provide. There were many inappropriate jokes, but one student made a big production to me about how, if we wanted to, we could see who in the room was pregnant right now. I was tempted, but I kept my mouth shut. I haven't told any of the other faculty yet except the department chair, who needs to know in case things go south and he needs to find a replacement for my fall classes. I'm seeing a few of the other faculty next week, though, so I may have to let the cat out of the bag at work at last. One of them was the department chair 2 years ago when I called her one day and said, um, I can't give the two exams I'm supposed to give tonight, and by the way, I'm in the hospital and won't be finishing the semester.

That was fun. Let's hope that doesn't happen again anytime soon, shall we?
