So my appointment yesterday went a lot better than I expected. We really didn't come away with any answers so I was a little bummed about that...but what was I thinking? I was hoping for this to be easy and it's going to be anything but easy. The good news is that there doesn't appear to be any major problems with the baby, which is very good news for us. Not all the results are back so we still don't know everything.
I gave blood...lots of blood. 10 vials to be exact. The lady kept pulling out more and more vials and I kept wondering if they were all for me, sure enough they were. I survived it and I didn't faint when I was done.
Next step is to get all the results from my blood work back, hopefully we'll get some answers from that, then on to the specialist in Dallas on April 11th.
I prayed for strength to get through the appointment yesterday and God gave it to me. Of course I cried a little, but I was able to ask questions and carry on a conversation....I was really proud of myself. No matter what's happening...I feel SO blessed. I have the most wonderful husband in the whole world, a wonderful and supportive family and the best friends ever! It's hard to feel sad all the time when I'm surrounded by so many blessings every day!
