Got some bad news from the Doc today
So my doctor's office called today but I missed the call so they told me to call back as soon as I get the message. I called back but they said the Doc was at lunch so try back in a bit. So I called back in an hour and they said they couldn't tell me anything and that I had to wait for the Doctor to call me back. Finally she called me back and apparently when they do the genetic testing for serious genetic defects it turns out I am a carrier for one of them. I'm glad she didn't beat around the bush but it's very serious and it's life threatening for the baby. Depending on the severity they can only live 2-3 years. The only way to know for sure if the baby has it is if my boyfriend goes in to get tested to see if he is a carrier as well but he doesn't have insurance so they want us to pay between $900-$1200 before they will do it. I told them we can't afford that so now the Doctor is sending us to a Perinatologist for genetic counseling and to see what other tests they will or might have to perform on me to confirm. I'm so scared and so upset right now. Sorry for the long post I just needed to get that out cause I have been crying all afternoon.
