Well, the only reason I had the u/s is in case it was something that could be addressed in utero. Im not going to terminate no matter what, so it doesnt really matter when we find out, except for my peace of mind. and if it is something, we will deal with that, I would just like to know WHAT. But I xposted this topic in health adn healing and got the same sort of respones as far as people who have had this happen and it turned out to be nothing so I am a lot more reassured now!
Something happened before my u/s and I cant help thinking it was a sign. Just as the doc came in, a nurse stopped her and said she had a vistior from out of state, so she excused herself and was gone about ten min. When she came back, she was crying. She apologized and I said it was ok and asked what was wrong. She said the person who had just stopped by was a former patient, she had done the u/s on her now nine year old dd. On u/s the brain was hanging out of the back of the skull and the mother was advised that there was no way the baby could survive and she should terminate. The mom refused. The staff all thought she was nuts, but they provided prenatal care and the baby lived. At birth they had to remove part of the brain to sew up the back of the skull and the parents were told the baby would be a vegtable and still the staff thought they were nuts to have this child.
The family now lives out of state but stops by every couple of years to say hi and bring by thier perfectly normal nine year old dd. And the doctor said "that child was a sign to me, that I dont know anything".
By the time she told me the story I was crying. If that child has no lingering problems from having part of her brain removed, Im thinking I can handle an unidentified spot! I love stories like that! Doctors do NOT know everything and it is a wise one that can admit it!
