Maternal Fetal Specialist

This afternoon at 3:15pm I went to the Maternal Fetal specialist, which in my opinion, was a big waste of time. But I understand it is necessary for Dr. F to have the 2nd opinion. We didn't learn anything we didn't already know. They'll send all their reports and whatnot to Dr. F.

I got there and filled out paperwork. I got my US next. Funny thing, the tech there did training at the CMH and she asked who did my US and I told her Beth and she remembered her and Dr. H too. Anyway, she finished up and then got the dr so he could look around too. The dr (can't remember name) was nice but I was annoyed at the fact that he seemed to think termination was the best thing and he made it known. Being the nice person I am I kept my mouth shut. Nothing he says is going to change my mind. Next we went and saw the genetic counselor. She just went over medical and family history and talked a little about anencephaly. So the rest of my appts will be spent w/ Dr. F and I am glad.

Anthony has mentioned to me about inducing around 30 wks but I just can't do that. I only have 4 more months to be w/ my daughter and I intend to have as much as that time as possible. I will talk w/ Dr. F our next appt and ask her what she thinks would be a good time to induce b/c I will have to be induced since more than likely she will not come on her own.

A burden has been lifted off of our shoulders. My parents are paying for Carleigh's funeral expenses. It's something my dad really wants to do for us and we are really grateful.

So many things to think about, to plan, and to do. It'll all start once we're back from our trip. So we will try our best to get all the rest and relaxation that we need in.
