Just hit the 21 week mark, actually, and had the 20 week sonogram last week.
Everything "perfect." The tech kept pointing out things that could be bad - let me look at the heart because often the major vein and the major artery can be switched, ok, nope, looks great. Ok, let's look at the bones of the arms and legs because you can measure differences that might indicate....nope, all fine. Ok, the spine, let's make sure it's not open, nope. It was a running patter and she was quick, so it only got to me a little. Good grief there is a lot that can go wrong.
I think for once someone in my doctor's practice actually looked at and read my history in advance of seeing me, so I think she thought she was being helpful. I just looked at the screen as one fat tear rolled down the side of my face.
And that was it. The check up was just a chat with the doctor. I'm just one of the regular patients. Nothing different or unusual about me at all. And I don't know how I feel about that.
