I didn't get news I was hoping for. Wasn't the worst news but not the greatest either
. I do have a new antibody Anti D I do believe she said. I will now be traveling two hours away to see a specialist. I just want to cry
. But my dr isn't too concerned. Worst case scenario is fetal death. I've been looking on the Internet and I think I scared myself more than I was. The ratio of this antibody is 1:32 and I'm only 12-13 weeks along. That is when they start to worry. It is likely my baby will need blood transfusions. That's is done through amniosyntesis (sp?). It will also result in frequent blood work and ultrasounds to monitor the baby for anemia. It's highly unlikely I will carry to term according to what I have read online. But the plus side is the doctor knows about it and has gotten on top of sending me to a specialist. All I can do is trust my doctors and hope for the best. I did get to hear the baby's heartbeat and it is good and strong
. I guess I will hold off on spreading my good news until I know a little more. I have only gained a half a pound according to my scale. According to the scale at the doctor's office I have lost 3 lbs.... I will go by the scale I have been using for almost a year now. And as always I will keep you guys posted as soon as I know anymore. I hope everyone has a great week. Thank you so much for listening to me to vent. I don't know what I would do without you guys
