Thoughts & prayers!

So we are all moved in to our new house! We moved this past weekend and are just about unpacked. I can’t wait to do a house tour when everything is set up and decorated! This weekend we will be finishing up the girls’ room and starting on Brady’s nursery. It has been kind of a catch-all for everything that doesn’t have a spot so that room will probably take the longest. I’m excited to start picking up pieces for it, though!

I can’t believe there are only about 12 weeks left of my pregnancy. I have about 86 days left until my c-section (we don’t have a set date yet, but I will be 39 weeks over Memorial Day weekend so it just depends on when my doctor is on the schedule). I have been trying to enjoy these weeks as this will be my last pregnancy, but we have been going through a lot.

I mentioned how Brady was at an increased risk for Down’s syndrome, but that the Harmony test came back as there being a .001% chance of him being born with it. We thought all was fine and dandy until it came time for my 20 week anatomy scan. They found a spot on his heart that I had to have re-checked at a specialist’s office. So off we went and when we got the ultrasound done, it turns out the spot was just a calcification that cleared up. But… the left ventricle in his brain is enlarged.
I had never heard of this happening before so naturally I freaked out. They didn’t seem concerned and says it will usually resolve itself. I scheduled another ultrasound for a month later, which ended up being last week. I had been praying on good news every night for the last month, but the ultrasound detected zero change. (Which I guess can also be a good thing, because at least it hasn’t gotten any bigger). We had to schedule an MRI in either Boston, MA or Lebanon, NH – both locations have hospitals that specialize in fetal MRIs – and where we went depended on who could get us in faster. Our fetal MRI is scheduled for Wednesday night up in Lebanon (we were hoping for Boston since it’s half the commute – but we wanted this done as quickly as possible so we could have some answers) so we will be making the 2 hour drive while my sister watches the girls.

Please keep us in your thoughts & prayers! We have been sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for some kind of answer.
