Ugh, I woke up to a voicemail on my cell phone from my OB's office "Hi Amy, this is Kristine from Dr L's office, we're going to need you to come back in, please give me a call." My heart stopped! I thought OMG, something is wrong with Jackson! Or I remembered that I just had my 1st 1hour GTT the other day, and thought OMG what if I have GD already!? I was so scared. I had to run to the bathroom to get sick before I called back because I was so worried.
So I call back and am on hold FOREVER till someone finally answered...
Girl: how can I help you
Me: Hi my names Amy, someone called me earlier and said I needed to come back in to see Dr L but they didnt tell me why.
Girl: hang on a sec.....on hold.....How far along are you right now?
Me: about 20 weeks.
Girl: okay we need you to come back in at 22 weeks for another ultrasound.
Me: OMG why??
Girl: hang on a sec....on hold again.... We didnt get good enough shots and measurements of the baby at your anatomy scan so we need to redo it.
Me: So there's nothing wrong with the baby>
Girl: Oh no not at all! We just need to redo a few pictures.
Geeze! Couldn't they have left that on my voicemail so I wouldn't have FREAKED!?
So we go back in on Friday the 22nd for another u/s and I'm taking her word that everything was okay.
I'm glad we get to see the baby again but man, I just about passed out from fright this morning.
20 weeks today and I cannot believe we have made it here. We are halfway through our pregnancy and only 140 days away from meeting our miracle face to face. It makes me cry just thinking about it. I feel so blessed and lucky to actually be here after all we have been through. It still seems so unreal and like I'm going to wake up from a very good dream. So thankful and in awe...
