Ultrasound tomorrow

2 Dec

Tomorrow is our Level II ultrasound and I am scared shitless. I wanted to have it as soon as possible so we could have more real answers and start planning for what’s to come. But I am also dreading it. I’m dreading that they’ll find out more is wrong than we all thought.

I’m afraid what they thought was gastroschisis is actually a much more serious omphalocele. I’m terrified that something else is wrong, something separate but equally devastating. They never got a chance to check for the regular NT scan things last week. I presume they’ll check for them tomorrow.

I’ve been putting off thinking too much about everything until I had more information. But after tomorrow, I will have more information. It will be time to think and deal. Maybe that’s the scariest part of all.
