What an asshat of a week!
This time last week we received a phone that shook our entire universe upside down. “After reviewing your 13 week scan our doctors have unfortunately found some fluid around baby’s neck, we would like to follow up with an amniocentesis test “
This is where the stick a needle In your baby area, take some fluid for chromosomal testing.
I’m fairly certain I just stopped breathing, I received a follow up call from the genetic counsellors, I ended up having to go into the office as they couldn’t understand me through the crying on the phone.
After an hour of being informed on the many issues that we could be looking at, I think I was numb.
My baby can’t be sick, and if he was, how sick? How much sickness could I handle? What if he was really sick?
The last week I’ve been completely checked out, how I managed to string words together is beyond me, between the spontaneous tears that attacked in many random places, the idea of my baby not being “ok” was terrifying.
Also, the idea of a needle going through my stomach and into my babies fluid was beyond terrifying.
When we found out we were pregnant we shot straight to elation.
I certainly didn’t think of how I’m going to tell our family and friends that we are facing a struggle
It’s our baby, our bundle of joy, i haven’t slept in days, worried sick about endangering him with a needle, and for what? I’m 16 weeks pregnant, I’m not exactly going to change my mind about having a baby! He’s in there right now kicking me, I’m going to love him no matter what!
Hardest fucking decision ever!!! I’m thrilled to say that our amazing doctor agreed to a scan this morning FOC before the amniocentesis testing was decided with a result of “ what we found earlier is no longer there, the baby looks healthy with no markers to indicate any issues”
I couldn’t have jumped off that treatment bed fast enough, a big thank you to all staff at #monashultrasoundforwomen
