Baby Update

OK ... So we were supposed to have the big 5 month ultrasound on the 7th, but they canceled it because it was at the Dr's office and they said we need to have all our ultrasounds with the perinatologist at the hospital now. So yesterday was that appointment. Baby's heart & brain.... everything look good. BUT... they found that the liver is involved in the omphalocele. This means it's going to be a more timely process to fix our little honey when he's born. The perinatologist also suggested that if we did want to get an amniocentesis we do it now. She said after 24 weeks (I'm close to 22 weeks) the chance of it putting me into labor is higher. But if we wait to far into the pregnancy I could end up having the baby before even getting the results and it would end up being a lost cause. We really want to know for sure if baby has a chromosomal defect so that we can plan the delivery and all. It's kind of complicated... If he does have the chromosome disorder they won't even do the surgery. Needless to say, we did the amnio yesterday. I'm feeling fine now. And you'd think I'd be going nuts waiting for the results, but I'm not. I think Ive waited so long that what's a few more days? Plus I just have a good feeling, I think he's going to be ok :-)
