Sorry I am combining two weeks with one but it has been a crazy two weeks for me. First off I want to wish all the moms out there a happy Mother's Day and I hope you all had an amazing day! I worked on Mother's Day but then got to spend the rest of the day with my family which was great! I had a good time, and it has become one of my favorite holidays since I became a mom. Father's Day is right around the corner, and I am already trying to think what I want to get Paulie for Father's Day! We will see; I still have a couple of weeks to think about it.
This week we also had a bit of a setback. In my last entry I wrote that everything was okay with my ultrasound and that the baby was perfectly healthy. I went back on Wednesday for my follow up because at the first ultrasound they couldn't see her heart too well and she was covering her face so they wanted me to go back. I went back and after the ultrasound the doctor came into the room and said that the baby still had the echogenic bowel which once again had me scared. I guess the doctor didn't see it last week because at this ultrasound, it was there. Once again she told me what that meant and that it could be Down syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, or an infection or she could have just swallowed my blood for the subchronic bleed. So now fear has set in again, and I don't know what to expect. I am nervous but I feel like deep down inside my little girl will be okay.
Tomorrow I am going to visit with my doctor and we're going to talk about whether we should have an amniocentesis done. I think for piece of mind, I will probably have it done. I had bloodwork drawn this past Friday for cystic fibrosis and any infections so we should be getting the results one of these days.
So that sums up my week. I am staying calm and hoping that this ends up being nothing. I'm at the halfway point of the pregnancy, 20 more weeks and my baby girl will be in my arms, God willing. I can't wait!!
