19w6d - prayers for Baby

I got a voicemail to call the OB today, and before I even called them back, I was freaking out. I knew something was wrong because the nurse left me her number to call back and didn't say anything else on the message. I was crying before I called... and after, too.

She said the report from my 3D u/s (the gender scan) said to check the abdominal area for fluid. The nurse wasn't sure if it meant there was fluid in my abdomen or Baby's, and that the report was really vague. They are sending me to a specialist for a level-II ultrasound. It was originally scheduled for Monday, but Josh called and got it moved up, so it will be tomorrow at 3.

She also said they didn't see anything on the u/s I just had, so I'm hoping this is all just some kind of fluke. If not, I hope it at least is a problem with me that can be fixed and not a problem with Little Dude.

I'm really scared but trying to be hopeful that by tomorrow afternoon, all this worrying will have been for nothing. The idea of something going wrong after all this time is just unbearable to me.

Please pray for us! I'll keep you posted tomorrow.

Shannon...I had something similar happen and so I know the feeling. I am definitely going to pray for you and your little man. I know it's easier said than done, but try and give your cares to Jesus...because he cares for you!

Shannon...that happened to me during my first ultrasound with Matthew. They thought they saw more fluid than normal meaning there could be problems.

I stressed out for 3 weeks before they could get me back in. I had another ultrasound and everything was fine.

Praying for a healthy outcome! :)

Love you guys! Patty

Of course you are in my thoughts tonight. I hope you feel some relief after seeing Patty's comment above. You know you can call me anytime if you need anything at all. See you tomorrow.

I'll spin prayer wheels for you. One rotation is said to send out 1000 prayers. I'll say a few of my own too.
