I am not sure what to tell you because I am not a doctor or a medical professional. But I can actually understand where you are coming from. I do not want to scare you with my story but maybe it might help you feel like you are not alone or even a bit better.

When I was expecting my son, I had a late first ultra sound done. And the doctor called with the results and told me that there were growths in the brain area. She said that in most likelihood it would disappear by the time my son reached the third trimester. They wanted to wait for another 8 weeks to do a second ultrasound to see for sure what was going on or if those growths had gone away on their own. My ex husband and I were in turmoil. We did not say nothing to many because for one my mother was going back East to visit friends for a short time and we did not know what or how to explain it to anyone either. After about 4 weeks of endless worry and stress I finally demanded the ultrasound to be done. But during that time frame, the doctor that I had been seeing for my care told me that it could be downs, certain dna/genetic disorders, and even the baby born and not live long because of other things. It was too much as you can see. The final week came and after that 4 weeks we went in and the looked. The doctor that did the ultrasound results did the ultrasound himself looking for those things that they had discussed before. Mind you that when I went for visits the heart rate, movement was fine and response to outside sounds were good. So we did not understand this diagnosis to start with. After a long several minutes the doc said that the baby was fine and would be healthy. That was the longest 4 weeks in my life. I did not know if my child would make it or not and it was hard to handle that ontop of being pregnant. So, I just wanted to share that with you. Its not easy going just one night let alone 4 weeks to find out what is going on.

I suggest some hot tea, a warm shower, relaxing music, and maybe a good book to go with it. Take it one day at a time. Do not put more into it than there is unlike the doctor I had do. She gave me a worse case scenerio every time. I changed doctors but stayed in that clinic. And even then I could not handle more tests. The new doc was sure I was making a mistake but after all we had just been through I did not want to push it further. So please take a big breath and let it out and do not let anyone tell you more than what is going on for the tmoment.
