baby number 2

Sep 20, 2011 - 0 comments




Second pregnancy, and i feel like she's going to give me the hardest time ever about everything. I was first diagnosed with shingles at around 12 weeks, probably due to the stress of having a second child and not sure of how we're going to make this work with a new home and what working challenges i will have to overcome. My doctor had me on medication for a week, all the while worrying if this outbreak could have or would have affected the baby. Four weeks later, and i get a phone call from my OB about my quad screen results. At this moment i was just thinking, oh great what else can go wrong. They set me up for a level 2 ultrasound to rule out the posibility of ds. I drove 45 minutes out of the way to this new doctors office, only for them to tell me i have to come back in 3 weeks for them to do the full anatomy scan. Everything "looked fine" to them which was a little reasurring, they gave me 2 profile photos of my baby girl, and as i studied these pictures i couldn't help but notice her upper lip looked a little off. I tried to calm myself, telling myself it's just a pictured produced by soundwaves, ofcourse it's not going to be perfect, or she could have just been making a funny face. As for now, i can do nothing but hope for a positive anatomy scan from my regular OB in 2 weeks.
