Today I should be 16 weeks pregnant. I should be feeling flutters and rubbing my growing belly. Instead it has been 2 weeks since we had to say goodbye.
I had my post op yesterday. I am healing well physically and the doctor was very kind. Chace's neural tube defect was very rare and the doctor reassured me that I did everything right, although I will always wonder what happened, what disrupted his neural tube growth and caused the Acrania?
For now, I am on 4 mg of folic acid daily in addition to a prenatal vitamin. We are hopeful this will curb any chances that this nightmare could happen again. I am hoping we can try again in the New Year...New Year, New Beginnings.
