Just got home from our midwife appointment. I actually took the day off because I'm a wreck, which is probably over dramatic but I'm a pretty emotional person at the best of times, much less in pregnancy!
Anyway, we got our ultrasound results. Everything looks right on track and baby looks healthy, amniotic fluid is good, placenta is nicely positioned (posterior, which explains all the movement I've been feeling). Those are the parts I keep reminding myself. Because she added "everything looks good except for one little thing", which is that they think "baby's nasal bone looks short for gestational age, however we can't get an accurate measurement from the static images". So....they're saying they THINK it's short but since they can't actually measure it to be sure off the images they got, we are going back for a better look.
I'm freaked out because it is, as our midwife put it, a "soft soft" marker....but she also said that at this point the nasal bone doesn't mean much anymore when it comes to screening because by now, genetics are playing a big role in how it looks (and yes, I have a small nose!!).
So now I'm super worried that either it's signaling a big problem, or that baby just has a problem with it's nose, or maybe it's all for nothing because right now it's only a guess until they can actually measure...our midwife was unconcerned because she said they are dealing with millimeters, it's so tiny still. But...I am still worried. And now I have to wait two weeks or more to get in, then wait another week for results. I'm not sure I can even enjoy my 3D u/s now. What if we see something terrible with it's nose?
I have been crying on and off since we got home. Anyone been through something like this before and had everything come out okay?
