Ever seen the painting "The Scream?" Great painting, interesting and apparently my kid has the same sense of humor. While going through the first trimester screening for Down Syndrome I mentioned that I was concerned that my kid had only one arm and why the hell does my kid have only one fricking arm? So the Doctor changed the view by moving the wand around and gave me a top shot of the bean. The bean looks like the Scream doesnt the bean?
After about 20 minutes of poking around the Doc couldn't get the bean behave and play nice for the camera. So he starts poking my belly, literally poking it trying to get the bean to move and roll over. The bean didn't like this one bit and after about 5 minutes of poking the bean got pissed. I'm watching the screen and I see this little arm go up towards the end of the screen and it started banging on the ceiling! The bean was beating back at the doc smacking him around with the U/S wand. I guess this is a true tribute to my Irish heritage!
So our bean is good. The tests came back very good. We have a 1 in 4223 chance of the bean having Downs and a 1 in 9661 chance of the bean having an extra chromozone. So we are skipping the amnio - things look good!
