First Ultrasound YoungAndCrazy Due December 23; 1 angel baby; Washington 103 posts
May 24th '16

On the 19th I went in to my doctors appointment and they told me they were going to do an ultrasound. 

First off, it's been a couple years and last time I was pregnant I had to go to the hospital for any ultrasounds so that was new to me. 

But my doctor decided to check and see if this baby has Anencephaly like my son did. 

This was the other surprise because I guess since the last time I was pregnant they began to be able to see that birth defect earlier than 11 weeks. 

I was 8 weeks, 6 days at this appointment and was really nervous because I hadn't prepared myself. I didn't think I was ready to know yet. And my fiancé wasn't able to come because he was at work and it was too short notice for him to leave. 

But not even two minutes into the ultrasound, my doctor turns the monitor to me and says "see, this one's head is perfectly round." And I started crying. He turned to me and said "your baby is perfectly healthy". I am the happiest woman in the world. Thinking that I might never get to have kids and then finding out i have a perfectly healthy little baby growing inside me right now. I am so grateful and so excited. It's still a long road ahead. I'm sill high risk and I don't know what's going to happen but at least I know that this baby has a chance. 

Thank you to all who've supported me through the past couple years and the people who've just started supporting me through this pregnancy. The thoughts and prayers are always welcome and I'm so glad this world is so full of such amazing women like yourselves. I will continue to update throughout my pregnancy.
