(Everything has been ok in our pregnancy, but then I had my NT scan a couple of weeks ago (I was 12 weeks, 4 days).  Our scan came back abnormal for increased nuchal fluid.  Of course, our risk isn't calculated until it's combined with the results of our blood test as well.  I received a call from the genetic counselor and my PAPP-A level in my blood was low.  Both the scan measurement along with my blood level, made our baby's risk for Down's Syndrome jump up way high.  We decided to hold off on an amnio for now and instead did a new non-invasive blood test and we are currently in the agonizing days waiting for a call from the doctor with results!)

To get our mind off of the stressfullness that we've been dealing with, I thought it'd be fun to see if anyone is able to gather a pretty good gender guess based on a side view we received at our NT scan.  Again, these pictures were from when I was 12 weeks, 4 days. 

This is the same photo twice, just one is closer up and a little grainier, and the other is a further one that the detail might be more easily visible.  I posted them both so I'd love to hear your thoughts. I do see a nub, but I am no good when it comes to the angle of the dangle!

 We already have a little girl who is 5.  Obviously, there's the obligatory "We just want a healthy baby" statement, but I thought it'd be fun to see what your guesses are!
