The Unexpected

I went to my 32 week checkup yesterday expecting the appointment to be my regular 5 minute appointment where they take my blood pressure, listen to the heartbeat, measure my belly and send me on my way. 

4 hours, 1 blood test, 2 emergency vascular scans and a referral for a growth ultrasound later, I was on my way. 

My OB was concerned about some leg cramps/pain I was having so she had me head to the hospital immediately for some leg scans to check for blood clots. Thankfully the tech didn't see anything big so I am hoping the doctor that reads the scans finds nothing else.

The OB also mentioned that the baby seems to be measuring small, so we need to have another ultrasound next week to check his growth. I am so scared something is wrong with his development. Googling intrauterine grown restriction was terrifying. I feel incredible guilt for doing or not doing something to help him grow. I feel an indescribable worry. Our appointment is next Wednesday so fingers crossed I can keep it together until then. 

Any good vibes you have to send our way would be appreciated!
