What's up, Doc?

I love my OBGYN.

He immediately made me feel at ease, he answered all my bajillion questions, and even though there may be some challenges ahead, he didn't get all DOOM-and-GLOOM on me about it, which was so refreshing, I could've kissed him....but I didn't. That would have made things awkward...

Oh! Oh! Oh! Annnd, he said I should be able to travel this summer which means that we'll be able to go see my brother and sister-in-law over 4th of July weekend. We're so stoked for that, as we'll (well at least I'll) miss their wedding in October. :(

In summation, my OB is currently my new buddy.
I hope this burgeoning relationship keeps trending toward the positive!

As for the details of my visit, he said that everything looks good, but he wants me to see a specialist just to talk about and get informed on how my CP may interact with the progression of the pregnancy.

I am also scheduled for an ultrasound to make sure that we have my due date correct and to double-check that development is on the right track.

Last but not least, he wants us to talk to a genetic counselor. There is a history of Huntington's Disease in my husband's family, so the doctor wants us to speak to someone about possible outcomes, testing, etc.

It's a lot to absorb, and we have a lot to think about. It's definitely a tricky situation, at best.

Anyway, I should be getting the results of my pap and blood work today, and I have a consult with the genetic counselor AND I have my ultrasound.


As per the usual, I just want everything to be okay.

Cross your fingers for me, kids!
