11 week appointment #8

October 8, 2014

Well, we had our first appointment with our OBGYN.  I can't even begin to describe how nervous and stressed I felt.  Was everything going to be ok? Or would we again be in that small percentage that had another little one to say goodbye to?

As the ultrasound started I felt like I was just holding my breath and preparing for any outcome.  And then we saw it....


 Jake and I both started crying.  It was instant relief for that moment! I wanted to just stay in that moment all day.  I could've sat and watched the ultrasound for hours!  We are both so grateful!  And we're very grateful for that moment of relief.

Our Dr came in after the ultrasound and said that we couldn't of had a more perfect ultrasound.  That everything looked perfect.  She gave us the extra 'go ahead' to tell our families and friends.  She said that it was less than a 5% chance of anything going wrong at this point.  Jake and I looked at each other like 5%?! That's high! It was less than a 1% chance of having a child with Anencephaly...and that happened.  So, we've decided to only tell our parents for now.  But, we are both so anxious for the day we tell Jillsie!

  1. I know you started this blog as an output for you both and you hope to help others with infertility and Anencephaly by sharing your story. But, I wanted you to know that it also helps me. After I read, I better understand how you and Jake must be feeling. I think about you all the time and wonder how you are doing. Reading your blog makes me feel better and I hope I can be more sympathetic to those around me with similar trials. So if nothing else... thank you for writing :) Love you 4, soon to be 5!
