We're Expecting A......


I finally went for my second ultrasound and they found a huge blood clot that needs to heal up and that's why I was bleeding at 13 weeks and still spotting now.

They also found a cyst on the baby's brain, but the doctor said that the cyst will heal up. However, it is an indication of a possible gentic disorder ( either down syndrome or Trisomy 18 ). BUT, because they only found one marker ( and there's a total of eight that could be found ) he gave me my statics, and really I still have a 99.7 percent chance of having a normal baby.

So, I'm going to go back in 6 weeks to see if the blood clot has healed up and make sure the baby is still growing and give the baby another good look at.

Here's a picture of my little rascal:
