I saw the high risk doctor today. Everything is FINE!! No side effects whatsoever! He said the radiation is out of your system completely ten weeks after the treatment!! No worries there. The Big Guy took it like a man; he cried! He is so happy. What a turn around from a couple of weeks ago.
What is the freakin figures part? Well let me give it to you verbatim. This is the conversation between the doc and the ultrasound tech.
“Is that a twin?” Wha?!
“Or is it just a bleed?”
Me: “I don’t like the sound of either one of those words.”
Big Guy, still flying high from the good news, “What words?”
Me: “Twin and bleed.”
Doc: “Have you had any bleeding during this pregnancy?”
Me: “No, none.”
Doc: “We’ll have you come back in five weeks and we’ll be able to tell for sure then. We’ll also check the neck for Down’s then.”
Me: “Uh okay.” Complete look of panic at the Big Guy.
Big Guy: “Don’t worry about it! Everything will be fine!”
The doc could have said there were five babies in there and Big Guy would be thrilled now that we know there are no side effects.
So August 8 we’ll find out if it’s one Scoop or two. Freakin figures, more waiting.
