My daughter is pregant; she's due mid July. Because she has had a child w/spina bifida, her chances of having another child w/sb is increased.

Yesterday she got the results of her blood test and she was told that she got a positive result for sb. She's already pretty distressed and this news only added to her concerns. She was also told that the placenta was too low & it was cause for concern...

Well today she was scheduled for her 3rd ultrasound. Knowing how distressed she's been feeling her hubby called the hospital & managed to get the head doctor, in what ever department that has to do w/sb. Fortunately this doctor was able to make it to my daughter's appointment. The doctor said that if she had not had a child w/sb b4, he would read the blood results as negative (the numbers were like 1 out 107,000). He also did the special ultra sound & did a through inspection of the baby.

Good news: The baby is p.u.r.f.e.c.t,
her placenta is where it's suppose to be, and
it's going to be a boy!

My daughter was so relieved & happy that she cried. When she sends me a picture of the ultrasound I'll post.

Here's a picture of Morgan, my grand daugher. She may not be able to walk, but she's p.u.r.f.e.c.t just the same :)

Morgan work'n hard to pedal her adaptive bike w/her hands (no help from her legs).

Morgan's 1s time bowling (now she does it from her wheel chair).

1st pony ride ("I don't need to ride the pony. I just need a hug. ).

What a cutie she is and look at that determined look on her face, nothing is going to stop her :-D Glad that doctor did the exam and such so your daughter is reassured.

Did she go to Burlington? I went there when I was told that my Emmanuel had Downs syndrome. The Dr was excellent and very understanding. After he did the test he said that he saw no sign of it, to go on and enjoy my pregnancy. I had a perfectly normal baby. They have some great Drs there and your daughter is in great hands.
