First off...sorry I wasn't able to post earlier. A combination of really bad news and being rushed to pick up my uncle and drive to Lynchburg made it virtually impossible to post. My mom's dial up is horrible and I would have been on there hours compared to the few minutes it takes me here.
I'll start off with the good news....Eddie and I are having a BOY!!!! We are very excited! We have a name picked out, but aren't telling anyone until after he is born :)
Ok...the bad news...After being in the doctors office an hour longer than expected on Wednesday, the doctor came in to tell us that our baby boy has a Choroid Plexus Cyst on his brain. Basically, this is an indication of a disease called Trisomy 18. This disease is "not compatable with life" (That was the exact usage of words from the doctor)..basically, if our son has this disease, he will not survive outside of the womb. We are having a more detailed, specialized ultrasound on Monday that will look for other indicators. They say this cyst is present in 1-2% of all pregnancies and usually will dissolve and go away on it's own. There's nothing we can do but wait and pray at this point.
I have never been more scared in my life and at a time like this, I should be happy and celebrating, but I just can't seem to bring myself to do that :(
