...Where there is life there is hope!!!!

Good news first....
Where there is life, there is hope!!!....
I am extremely happy to report that our prayers were answered!!!…. My online friend Kathy got great news yesterday after her follow-up u/s, everything looked good and baby Benson was as happy as can be with a strong heartbeat again!!!

And now, a little update about my life these days:
I had an appointment with the endocrinologist yesterday to check on my thyroid levels and everything looks good. No need to increase my meds at this point, which is great, and I hope to keep the good news coming after my u/s this afternoon.

I don’t know if my u/s is like the big u/s that those of you living in the States get. This one is a very detailed u/s performed by a genetics specialist. Here they call it “Level IV -Genetic u/s”. After the u/s I will get a report and a copy will be sent to my OB/GYN. We will discuss the results with the specialist during the appointment and then with my OB/GYN next week. This is the u/s were we will know for sure the gender but it is the last thing I am really worried about…. I just want everything to be fine!!!!

I wouldn’t be honest if I tell you that I am completely relaxed. Every time an appointment gets closer I get nervous and anxious, …. Well this time is no exception, I guess I was fine during the past few days but then today I really feel the anxiety. The T is not going to be able to make it today for the u/s as he has to attend the Christmas party for all the employees at the warehouse. I will be going all by myself so please send me all your good vibes, thoughts, and prayers!!!

The u/s we get in the States is a level II u/s. I think they have Genetic u/s here too, but those are more detailed and I'm not sure what circumstances cause you to get one.

I hope yours goes great! Sorry the T can't join you.
