Baby at 14 Weeks, 2 Days
We were induced to an quasi-emergency ultrasound about a week back. After Katleyn had a routine monthly checkup and some bloodwork, everything seemed alright. However, soon thereafter, in a call from our doctor’s nurse in which she said there was an abnormality, we were told that we needed to get in for an ultrasound ASAP. We were also told that the due date probably needed to be adjusted. There was no explanation of what the abnormality was. Needless to say, we were a bit apprehensive.
A couple of days later, we went to have the ultrasound done. We expected to see either our nurse or doctor there but, alas, we were greeted only by the ultrasound tech. She was very nice and did an excellent job. She recalculated the due date to April 14 (which gave us about 2 more weeks of preparation time) and said everything looked fine. She made no mention of any particular reason why the ultrasound was ordered and even was a little puzzled as to why the test was ordered at all.
A subsequent phone call to the nurse cleared everything up, sort of. She explained that she didn’t mean to say abnormality because, apparently, there wasn’t one. Which leads me to this question: Why did we have this quasi-emergency ultrasound done? We already had one scheduled in the not too distant future. And I can see no difference in treatment or pre-natal care. What was so pressing about an adjustment of 2 weeks in the due date? I just don’t know.
Well, here’s what our baby looks like about now:
