Yesterday Chase and I went to my second ultrasound. Everything went great. we got the see the baby. She is getting so big, and was quite the wiggle worm. Moving around and flipping and wiggling. She definitely will be a dancer. =] We got to hear her heartbeat and everything was strong and normal. then the doctor said, "There is something that I am seeing that concerns me, let me show you what it is." My heart instantly dropped. She moved the picture in the screen to my tiny little baby's stomach and pointed out a large black circle. very significantly sized and I would even say large compared to the rest of the body. much larger than her hands, or feet and I would even say almost as large as her head. She told us that is was a pocket of fluid. She wasn't sure if it was on the stomache or kidneys, but may be a problem with the chromosomes. I automatically knew exactly what that was and my heart sunk even deeped. She told us that we would most likely need to go to a specialist to have it further checked out. Of course the tear flow had already started. Something so exciting turned so terrible in just a few seconds. She printed us out some pictures of our tiny little guy and then we went back to the waiting room to wait for the doctor. I was beside myself. I don't think either Chase or I knew what to say to each other. Finally after what seemed like ages, we got called back. The doctor came in and told me not to worry yet. She said with technology the way it is these days, ultrasounds pick up on things early enough that normally if the ultrasound would have been a month or two later, they would just take care of themselves. Dr. Zelenkov called the pocked of fluid cysts. She said that our baby has on the left side of it's abdomen and one on the right side which is a little bit bigger. She gave us a few possibilities of what could happen. She said that we needed to go meet with a Perinatal Specialist because they would be able to do a closer ultrasound and see exactly where the cysts are growing. She said she is pretty sure she got a clear shot of the kidneys so they probably aren't there, and they look too low to be on the lungs. So... on February 17th we go to meet with a doctor at the U to figure out for sure what is going on. Also on that day, we will find out what the sex of our baby girl is. I am terrified... but I know things will be ok.

Saturday we got our engagement pictures taken. Chase's sister Anisha took them. She did such a good job, even though both of us were a little freaked out about acting cutesy to each other on camera. =] haha
I know I write this in every single blog post that I write, but I don't care. I love Chase so much. I know that everything happens for a reason, and I know there is a reason Chase happened to me. He is such a good thing in my life and he makes me so happy. We argue like we should, both of us are very stubborn. But the best part about it is even when I am terribly angry at him, I can't stop thinking about how much I love him. There's something about his eyes that wins me over. Stinking brat. =] It's too bad for the rest of you that I snagged the most amazing person in the entire world and the rest of you have to settle. Haha.
Here are some of our pictures. =]
