Hi blogland 🙂
Happy Friday! I wish today was next Friday. The next 7 days would be over.
I’m not sure how to post about anything when I only have one thing on my mind.
Yesterday, we got to see our SWEET baby, Cohen 🙂 While almost everything looked great, our doctor has a bit of concern with the LOOK of the left side of his heart. Yes, my immediate reaction was to break down. The doctor didn’t seem super scared or concerned. He was calm and just told us he isn’t certain if anything is wrong but he said he didn’t like the way the left side looked. He said he hopes that he is just having a hard time picking up the angle he wants to see but he has concern it could be developmental. I won’t go into too much more detail as we don’t really know much more. The more I talk and think about it, the more I break down. His heart was beating and that’s what counts. If the left side weren’t working at all, it wouldn’t be beating. However, yesterday it seemed as though the right side was compensating some for the left side. We are going to a Pediatric Cardiologist next week. Our appointment is scheduled for next Thursday morning. Of course hours after leaving the doctor I called to see if I couldn’t get in ANY quicker. Well, I have to be 22 weeks for the sonogram thing they are doing so, Tuesday would be the earliest I can go. They will look first thing Tuesday morning to see if there are any openings.
The heart was the last thing he checked so the first part of the ultrasound was very pleasant. Cohen was moving around and measuring right on track. Doctor said he had long legs & big feet! There was also a student in with our doctor so he did and showed us all kinds of neat things 🙂 We got a few pics I’ll post in my Prego Mego post Tuesday.
I know this will be a stressful waiting period but I certainly have faith that God has a plan. No matter how many tears I cry, there are going to turn out they way they are supposed to. I hope next week, I can look back and think these were silly tears of worry. I’m not going to call it something possibly being “wrong”…I’m going to call is a possible “issue”. While I hope there is no issue with Cohen’s heart, I know there is so much medical technology out there. Of course, he is also in His good hands.
I would also like to note, I have total faith in my doctor. He takes what he does very seriously and I know his is super cautious. I know a lot of girls that go to him. He checked twice in one day to get the neck measurements for my nephew. He also sent one of my pretty close friends to a Pediatric Cardiologist when she was pregnant because he wanted to someone to take a second look at her baby’s heart. Luckily, there was no alarming issue. There was a small hole and a little thickness but the Specialist didn’t have concerns after having the long ECHO done to check. While I do think it’s sometimes it stinks to have to worry, I much rather be prepared than under prepared. If it were any other doctor, I might not have even had an ultrasound yesterday for him to look. Thank God for an ultrasound every appointment. I know babies were and are born all the time with few if any ultrasounds. They can be helped at birth if an issue arises. Our doctor said if there is any issue, we would just start or create a plan of action.
Please keep us in your prayers and I will keep you all updated.
I know it isn’t realistic for me to ask you to refrain from commenting any scary issues on this subject but to please share the good comments or situations. However, just consider it. This momma doesn’t probably need any more stress currently :o)
I didn’t want this post strictly to be about the above because I really hesitated to post about it at all. I hate to worry if there may be no issue but how can I not. SO, let me see what else I have going today…..
I ordered the crib this morning! Here is it 🙂
Hopefully next weekend I can take the bedding to get made. That will take about two weeks. The crib may take a few weeks to arrive as well. I’ll be ordering the other furniture probably in the next few weeks.
Today, I’m getting to see some cuties!
I also got to see Jessica & Lucy!
I’m hoping this weekend hubby will take me to see this…..
I’m thinking of attempting this delicious sounding recipe this weekend ….
