So, the doctor's appointment. First, some perspective. Joshua has said several times: "No matter what, he will be our son, and we will love him." And it won't even be hard to do.
As far as the results from the doctor...is there a physical problem with Malachi? We still don't know. Something could be wrong. But probably not. We'll just have to wait and see, and try not to worry in the meantime.
The specialist said things look good for Malachi. He does have one part of his brain that measures out of the ordinary. But every other thing checks out. She took a good look at his heart and his brain and they look healthy. He seems to be very healthy in the way he moves and responds. So unless something changes, she sees no need for concern.
There is a small chance that this one off-measurement could indicate something we can't see yet, but it is unlikely. So unlikely that if he continues to be so healthy for the rest of the pregnancy, the doc wouldn't even discourage me from a homebirth. To me, that seems very significant.
