K got a call from the OB’s office today and was told that our doctor wants us to do a repeat anatomy scan. Apparently, she wasn’t able to see everything in our previous ultrasound. We’re trying not to fret about needing to redo this test and to just take it as another opportunity to catch a peek of Falco, but it’s difficult to not allow your mind to wander to the darkest “what-if’s” that reside there.
I’ve been doing some internet research to see if this is a common problem, and I’m learning that it seems to happen to a significant portion of pregnant people and usually without incident. Maybe this is just happening because of how Falco was positioned or because it was fairly early. I keep telling myself that if our doc was actually concerned about something specific, she’d tell us what that is, but again, it’s difficult to keep from obsessing. Please keep your fingers crossed for us. Our repeat ultrasound is next Thursday at 7:30 a.m. (sorry, K!).
In unrelated news, one of our dogs managed to pull a Houdini this morning. When K went to put the dogs in their crate before we left for work this morning, he yelled up from the basement, “WTF?! One of the dogs ate almost an entire package of rice cakes, made a huge mess and pooped all over the place!” My reply: “Wait – which flavor of rice cakes did she eat…?!” K was outraged and asked incredulously, “Is that really your main concern here?!” Ah, the joys of having pets. They sure know how to keep us on our toes.
