@mwitter80:  First…deep breaths….in and out!

Right now, I know all you want to do is worry, but worrying will absolutely put stress on the baby. I know it’s impossible not to worry, but try not to google or anything until you’ve been checked out by a doc. 

Once you have been checked out by the doc, go from there…there’s only so much you can do right now, and most of it is beyond your control. 

Definitely praying for you and the little one, and keep us updated on all that’s happening.

@mwitter80:  I agree with PP. It’s so hard not to worry but google will only make it worse. When is your appointment? My prayers are with you.

@mwitter80:  as frightening as that is, when I was reading your post, I kept expecting you to say something that meant you were going to lose the baby, or there were serious complications,  so I was relieved to read what’s going on! I know that’s terrifying to think about, but there might not even be anything wrong, they just want to check. And if there is, you have plenty of time to prepare a plan of attack. And it sounds like this is something that is fixable.

Take some deep breaths and try not to stress yourself out – it’s not good for you or the baby. Stop googling! Nothing good will come of that!

 

Thinking good thoughts for you!

@mwitter80:  I just watched a maternity show this morning on the topic of ultrasounds.  They had a specialist who was saying that when there is a doubt, it is best for the technician/doctor to send you to an expert.  A normal technician/doctor’s job is to check everything out, but if there is a doubt, an expert should be called in to diagnose or refute whatever was found in the first ultrasound.  The specialist was saying how important it is to see an expert immediately instead of doing follow up ultrasounds with the same technician/doctor since it just causes unneeded stress to the parents.  I hope you take comfort in the fact that the expert you will see will be able to give you a definite yes or no answer.  You’ve been directed to the right person and at this point all you can do is pray and hope for the best.  Chances are, everything is fine and they just didn’t get a good enough reading from the first ultrasound.  Hugs!

@mwitter80: Google does make everything worse! Someone needs to put a parental lock on your google right now!

@mwitter80:  that sounds promising! but waiting is so torturous. Hopefully they get you in quickly and give the baby a clean bill of health!

Hopefully when you have the ultrasound done at the hospital they will be able to reassure you that everything is ok. From my experience they usually err on the side of caution and alert you of every little thing even though its most likely not an issue

@mwitter80:  The fact that they are not sending you in right away is reasssuring.  I agree with PPs, try not to worry. I know it is so much easier said than done, but Google is just such a PITA.

Easier said than done – but no more Googling and try not to worry!

Hopefully when the expert takes a look at everything, it’ll check out fine.  And if it doesn’t, it sounds like this is fixable.  Hopefully you don’t have to wait too long for an appointment.  Keep us updated on what you learn!

I had an ultrasound scare at my anatomy scan and flipped out – but then everything ended up ok. My stress caused more harm than anything. The ultrasound showed a cyst in my daughter’s brain which is a sign of Down’s but the cyst ended up dissolving before the next ultrasound. 

On another note, if your baby does require surgery it will be ok. My Fiance had a pyloric stenosis that wasn’t discovered until he was almost a month old. He had been projectile vomiting ACROSS an entire room and his parents had to put down drop clothes to protect te furniture. The doctors finally figured out what was wrong and took out about 8 feet of his intestines. He is perfectly fine and healthy now. He does have some GI issues if he eats really greasy food but that’s it. Surgery techniques have come a long way since then and at least you would be finding out sooner rather than later like my FI’s parents.

I hope my ancedotes have made you feel a little more relaxed!

Oh dear.  That is scary sh*t!  Definitely try to stay away from Google…but I understand, it’s what I always do, too.

I really hope this all turns out ok for you and your baby!  I think it’s a good sign that they’re not rushing you immediately, but I know that you just need to know what’s going on.  *giant internet hugs*
