Surprise

Today I decided to call the doctor regarding a totally non-baby related issue. They worked me in to see the nurse practitioner, and she was phenomenal. She decided to go ahead and check on the baby while I was there, and as we were finishing up she asked me about fetal movement. It had decreased a little, which I thought was normal at 37 weeks, but she said she would just feel better if we did an ultrasound. The rest of the day was a blur. The ultrasound tech left the room to call my doctor, and they sent me immediately to the hospital for monitoring. All went well, but the doctor called all the family in and informed us that the ultrasound showed fluid on Harper’s brain. She sent us home but told us to expect a call from the fetal specialist, and to be prepared to have to deliver at Duke.
