We got our genetic testing results back today.  They came back abnormal for neural tube defects.  The doctors office called and I let it go to voicemail not thinking it was them.  I checked the voicemail and they asked me to call back and I knew immediately what it was.  I called back, and when she told me I was just in disbelief.  After almost 5 years of TTC, I had Abby, and she was born with birth defects.  Another year of TTC and we had a miscarriage.  And now this.  Im devastated.  I've done nothing but cry since they called this morning.  I know there is a chance it's wrong, but I dont exactly have really good batting averages when it comes to normal, healthy pregnancies and babies.  I've spent 17 weeks praying for a healthy baby.  I've bled, and hurt and worried and since my appointment last week I've FINALLY, finally felt at peace.  I've felt the baby move, and I've actually felt some attachment.  And now, there is a chance that this baby could have a birth defect incompatible with life, or born with major birth defects.  I've been counting down the days until I find out the gender (13 more days!) and now I am counting down the days until I can get into the perinatologist's office to find out exactly what is or isn't going on.  We could definitely use some prayers if you've got some.
