So DH and I went to the high risk office today. We sat with the nurse for a couple of hours, and we did a very thorough interview. She was very niche, and tried to help me understand the dr. rotation crap. I still don't buy it, but I DO feel more confident in their ability to relay impt. information from one dr. to the other.

I explained to the nurse about my anxiety and mental health issues. I know that pregnancy is exaggerating the feelings that are already there, but the anxiety is so bad that I haven't been able to rest at all. I've been catnapping for the last two days, which isn't good.

I have to see what I can do...if I wasn't the sole provider right now, I'd readily admit that I need a medical leave until these issues are under control.

I see the dr. next week, and then they will decide on a course of action.

Rebecca...they are sending me for genetic counseling and MFM. We got genetic counseling after we lost Jonah...that info wouldn't change, would it? In a few months?
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!

No, it wouldn't change (which is why we didn't repeat the counseling we had after losing Ethan), but sometimes different practices want to redo things like tests and ultrasounds and counseling for themselves, I guess they want to make sure everything is done right. The only thing that might be different is your age - if you crossed the 35 year mark between Jonah and now, the genetic risks change a bit. But if everything is the same and you feel confident in your prior counseling, you could always ask to skip the new appointment.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!
