In a world where everything seems anything but, “normal” is a very comforting word to hear. I am far too drained from yesterday’s post to write anything substantial today (and thank you all so very much for all the love and support since), but I’m just driving by to say that I heard from our perinatologist today that the results of the Penguin’s early genetic screening were “well within the normal range.” To be exact, our risks are 1 in 5000 for Down Syndrome and 1 in 10,000 for trisomies 13 and 18. And we hit 13 weeks today. So while I know all too well that there are never any guarantees, our risks of things going wrong keep dropping. Even having been on the worst end of the odds when we lost our precious Hudson, that is still a relief.
