Waiting for lab results for yourself really freaking sucks. Waiting for lab results on your unborn child is cruel and unusual punishment.
The 3 weeks of waiting taught me that I have zero patience, and that we will believe what we want to believe. No news was good news, in my eyes. I had actually started believing they weren’t calling us because there was nothing abnormal found in the amniotic fluid.
Even after the cleft lip and palate diagnosis, you’d think I wouldn’t be so naïve.
I received the phone call from the genetic counselor while I was at work. I walked into a private room, and just listened. She revealed that the test came back abnormal and that Chris and I should come in to talk about the findings.
