Thank you Dawn! We're doing fine. I just started the seventh month (week 28) this week so there's only 3 months left to go!
We're not going ahead with the preparations yet as there are some problems. A blood test that was done more than a month ago discovered a possible infection with CMV. It's a virus that can be extremely dangerous to the fetus
We're doing further tests now and I hope we get some good results tomorow. If the results are not so good, we'll need to do another blood test and then maybe an amnio. Overall chances are really good so we try not to worry. Our doctor estimates that the chance that the baby was infected in one in 200, so we have like 99.5% chance that everything is okay.
Still, I prefer not to buy things until we get the all clear... The grannies to be say that we would be better off without all those tests anyway
but in Israel prenatal care is very good and they get you to do every possible test there is.
Sorry about the long post... I didn't want to worry people so I didn't mention it. But you did ask...
