Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Looking at her hands and her feet and her everything and then she said this thing i noticed it on the ultrasound it was like what's that enter brain it looks as symmetrical to me and she said yes so they came in and talk to us and they said i think that normally we wouldn't even say this is a problem but because of your history so to get more technical seymour technical so there is a blood test that is a screen not diagnostic called the cell free dna test in their certain brands like we did that one at at twelve eleven twelve we actually yes i did too but then i want an ultrasound because in my trisomy eighteen pregnancy that didn't last i had a good self reason i suppose song give only which is so post to be super duper rare so they are like well you have this great harmony test i just don't think it's actually a thing said well i had a boss negative before yeah so they said well why don't you make an appointment maternal fetal medicine because of your history and i talked to the midwest later that day which was really helpful because they highlighted some of the other things that you would see in a baby with trisomy eighteen like rocker bottom feet and unable to open the hands and they're just a bunch of other usually it can manifest itself in different ways but organ upper maladies in so i could i could know that she did not have rocker bottom feet and in even in the twelve week ultrasound he could see she had a clear open hand even at a photo of it that i could go and look at and so there were things that i could say it's really unlikely that this is the case but it was nice to get a couple visits in with maternal fetal medicine anyway and i think we had our last appointment with them on trump's inauguration day so interesting what a time and the doctor came in and she said after i had another tra sound she said you just you just have a beautiful baby and that really was really helpful for me yeah i think that point we started thinking okay we can plan for this i still didn't feel like i was able to say i'm going to have a baby until hadn't baby in my but i we started to feel much better after that what was that you know for day one day two of luna's life you know after she was born like i had i mean we had an experience of kind of being disconnected at first and i guess i assume maybe incorrectly that it was very different for you what did if you liked to finally have her in your arms was wonderful yeah yeah i think that not everyone feels like they fall in love their baby right away definitely was in love with her right away yeah yeah yeah was best deal debris have this aim experience is you yeah yeah yeah definitely that's also yeah well thank you for sharing that can you so as you approach one year of parenthood what has surprised you the most oh wow the most probably the things that people tell you but you just when you experience it it's it's your own like oh this is true they weren't kicking what they said it was accurate i think the times of feeling really overwhelmed were surprising to me i think was surprising to me that i i had a lot of anxiety about her sleep in how she was taking really poor naps for a while there in that was i found that really stressful books about home importantly was is and yeah i found that really i had a really high anxiety about that so.
