Let me tell you that was the longest two weeks of my life waiting, crying, worrying, PRAYING!! and just really trying to come to terms with anything if it were to come back that way. This was also filled with a lot of sleepless nights.
Well on Thursday I made the call to get the results... well not what I had thought when the nurse tells you i'm sorry in your case the doctor will need to call... yeah NOT ok to tell a pregnant mommy who already has a lot going on. So I gave the nurse my info for the doctor to call me back.
Now it truly only took the doctor probably 5 minutes to call me right back ( that has to be some record for a doctor ) but within that 5 minutes I had a COMPLETE breakdown. Bawled my eyes out, text my husband what the nurse had said, cried even more, had a panic attack and of course cried even more. I wasn't crying though that I was upset something was wrong I was crying because well my hormones were kicking in and I was worried. Worried what this was going to mean for our family. No matter what we were gonna love this one!!! But I was worried how we would get by on one income with 2 disabled children, worried what stress was going to come on us not just as parents but as a married couple and a family. I wanted to make sure whatever was coming our way we could handle like pros and show ourselves that in the end we were worried about nothing because well We got this :)
Finally the phone rang! It was the doctors office I quick stopped crying answered and it was my amazing doctor. Her first words were I wanted to be the one to tell you the good news! Oh my heart sank! IN A GOOD WAY THOUGH!!! She called to tell me our little one's test all came back negative. Now we know that yes things can still come about because of course what they tested for was nothing our son has going on but it is nice to rule some big things out of the way. I was sooooo happy. Then came even more good news!
Now at our last doctors appointment we found out what we were having and were very excited! But with this testing it FOR SURE tells you the sex due to the blood work. We are happy to announce that we are having a little BOY!
Of course we were so happy we are having a healthy baby boy! It was even better getting to see the huge smile on my husbands face when he came home after work that day finding out the news!
Well... Now I'm 20 weeks!!! Yes thats right 20 weeks!! CRAZY this pregnancy is already half over! It seems like just yesterday that we found out we were pregnant! Although it has gone by fast I sure hope the next 20 dont go as quick!
