sweet relief!

I am so relieved to report that my baby looks absolutely normal and healthy in the detailed ultrasound I had this morning!  <big sigh of relief>

the value of prenatal care

Things were sailing along so smoothly, I was starting to think, "what's the big deal about prenatal care?"  You always hear how horrible it is not to have it, but I guess besides nutrition, you don't really need it unless something goes wrong.

how will I get through the next few days?

I am skating on a numb surface holding me just over a sea of panic.  Some degree of denial is saving me from the horror of possibilities presented by my positive screen for open neural tube defects.
