Today's Doc Appointment

Another day another doctor appointment! Today’s appointment was with my regular OBGYN. She monitors my pregnancy and listens to the baby’s heartbeat. It was weird being back at her office.  It was the place I went to pre-spina bifida diagnosis. After the diagnosis it has been all specialists at three different hospitals.  I have felt great so far during my pregnancy and I always felt like such “star” patient before.  Now going back today it was a different story. I can’t help feeling like maybe I did something to cause this.
My doc today was very nice. She thinks the prenatal surgery is my best option which made me feel better about moving forward with the consultation.  Everything else looked good too. The baby’s heartbeat sounds great. My favorite part of the appointment is hearing Andrew’s heartbeat. It is the best sound in the world! Please keep your fingers crossed and prayers going that things go well for us on April 21st and we are selected for the surgery.
Thank you everyone for all of your support! I don't know where we would be without it.


  1. So glad everything looks great! You will be in my prayers... April 21st is so close!!

  2. I Hope everything goes well for you! Speaking as someone with Spinabifida i love your blog and you are extremely inspiring with your great attitude!

  3. Thinking of you every day Kelly! I know what you mean about bedside manner...I'm sure it was nice to go back to your OBGYN and have some reassurance there! And (although it may not have to do with their expertise) it helps when they are nice on top of it. You are being so strong - very proud of you!
