So, dh and I are expecting after 4 miscarriages last year and finding out that I have a blood disorder that was probably causing it. Oh, and I'm 40.
Anyhow, we went to our 12 week appointment yesterday. I was terrified that they wouldn't find a heartbeat and I would be going through another miscariage; but there it was, the thrumming of little horses in my belly!!! YAY!
Only then we get the "talk" from my dr about advanced maternal age and the expiration date on my eggs. UGH.
Now, dh and I had talked about amnio's and screening. My understanding was that we agreed that if anything was wrong, they would more than likely be able to tell from US. (Dh is a biomedical engineer, so he kinda knows what he's talking about)
But NO! DH throws me under the bus in front of the Dr and says he thinks we should do the amnio. :/
So, I agree to have it done. Dr says he's never had a miscarriage from an amnio, blahblahblah.
But, what do I DO with the information if it isn't good?? How am I supposed to wait two whole weeks to find out the results?
I guess I was really just looking forward to being able to take a breath and relax and ENJOY this pregnancy. Now I'm even more stressed.
