A little bit scary...



Things around here have been a bit scary in the baby department as of late. 2 and a half weeks ago we went in to the specialist to have my mid pregnancy ultrasound. The baby is growing amazingly well she is right on track for her due date, her brain looks great her head looks great her heart looks great and her joints at her hands and feet are also great which is huge. The one scary thing that they saw was something in her tummy around her bowel which can mean she might have infection in there or something called cystic fibrosis and also it can mean nothing at all... so of course I start freaking out!!! They decided to do a few tests on me to test me to see if I am even a carrier of the gene or not. Well last week the tests came back that I am... so the next step in the  process was to perform an amniocentesis. We scheduled the test for Friday afternoon. Thursday night on my way home from work only 3 blocks away from where I needed to be I was involved in a car accident. I drive a mini van and was stopped for a red light the truch who came behind me wasnt paying attention and drove right into the back of me and pushed me into a truck that was in front of me so my van was smooshed inbetween these 2 big trucks!! The guy behind me hit me hard enough that my stomach hit the steering wheel and also my head went flying forward and hit the back of my seat luckily I am a mad woman about wearing my seat belt so that helped. It took the cops 45 minutes to show up but when they did they decided that since my belly hit the steering wheel and my arm, neck and back were hurting that  I needed to be seen Layne came right away as soon as it happend and took me up to the hospital. They immediatley took me to labor and delivery to check on the baby. Not a place I pictured myself at 21.5 weeks. They found her heart beat right away and she was kicking like crazy they hooked me up to the contraction machiene and luckily I was having none. They monitored me for 2 hours before they sent me over to ther ER to have myself checked out. Luckily no broken bones just lots of bruisng and whiplash. They released me and gave me instructions to check in with my ob. Lucky for me the next day was my amnio. they were so good about everything and since the wreck was the night before they did another full body ultrasound to check over baby and she is still looking good. The stuff around her bowel wasnt as much either which is good news. Once the ultrasound was over they performed the amniocentesis which hurt like crap!!! I guess just another added pain from the night before.... now we wait for 7-10 days to get the results to see if indeed she does have cystic fibrosis or any other condition that they can detect. We are hopeful that all will be well with her. She is looking good and growing great but the chances she will have it are strong. The good news is there are alot of different kinds and how much they impact each individual person. Laynes brother has cystic fibrosis and has lived a faily good life and is in his 50's so we are hopeful. In the meantime please keep baby girl in your prayers. Every little prayer helps!!
