Hi i went for just a standard scan at the fetal assesment at 20 week scan. Everything was going so well and it was all laughs and sighs and then the sanographer got very quiet and we knew somwthung was wrong...thats when they dropped the bomb of what is worng with our boy. Shocked and overwhelmed....i went back to them for amniocentesis for a chromosone test... that was not easy. 2-3 weeks i had to wait for our results. The waiting and not knowing was killing me. Then after 2 weeks we were told that the results came back normal. This was a little glimmer of positive news. We meet with the Prof and two other Dr's to discuss what is the next lot of steps. I am trying to stay positive and have a visual of us leaving the hospital with our little boy...who we have named Maxx... i pray everyday that Maxx lungs develope with enough room and that his heart does not get compromised... this all feels like a terrible nightmare and i cant wake up. How am i to carry on with a smile on my face when my heart is aching so much? How do i react when people ask about me being pregnant and start asking personal questions? So many roller coaster of emotions.... is anyone else have the same feelings and have the same going on...or gone threw this and have advice for me?
