Amniocentesis

Amniocentesis
Current mood: calm
Category: Life

You know, chalk it up to pregnancy brain, old age, too much drugs in my youth, or a combination of all 3, but I don't remember letting you all know that Daniel and I decided to go ahead with the amnio that my ob/gyn AND the fetal specialists have been pushing for. I guess we decided that it's better to know, and this way, if there any special needs, even medically speaking, then we're giving the baby the best chance at survival, by having prepared not only ourselved, but the medical providers.

It's scheduled for tomorrow morning, 9:15am. Apparently there are no restrictions for me for afterward, so assuming I'm not feeling poorly, I'll be going to work afterward. (only restriction: no heavy lifting) The results from the amnio, I understand, aren't immediately available. I believe they take 7-10 days to grow, so I will not likely have any immediate news.

I just wanted you all to know. I know you all care, and will keep us in mind in your way.

Thanks for checking in!
