We had our 4D / anomaly scan at Peek-a-Babe today. What an awesome experience. It was amazing to see your features in such detail.
Shortly after we started, the lady said that she's not happy with your top lip . . . I knew right away what was wrong. For a few weeks now I've had a nagging, overwhelming sense that you have a cleft lip. I have no idea where the thought came from, but it wasn't a conscious one.
You were moving around so much that it took a long time before we could get a good look at it, but when we finally did it was very clear to see.
I don't know how I knew, but I'm glad I did because it helped to cushion the blow a bit.
It will mean surgery for you eventually - to correct it - but I pray that it is just your lip and not your palate, and that you will only need one operation.
It sucks that we will have to go through all the drama that comes with surgery etc. (which, of course we know all about because of what we went through with your brother); but I pray that you are able to feed and develop normally. I know that you are a very special soul and I thank God for blessing us with your life. We love you so much already!
Always, mom xxx
Today was a difficult day. I was feeling very overwhelmed about everything and sad for what lays ahead. I know you will be fine. I know God will keep you safe; but surgery is a huge deal and I hate that you're going to have to go through all that
