(I realized in rereading the update post below that I think it sounds a little more scary than how we felt when we left the office. I also forgot to mention here that I really think my perinatologist is fantastic. Really sensitive and really aware of how scary this is for us and really, really there for us. He always greets E by name when he walks into our room. He actually came to the ER to see me last night, after we talked on the phone, because he was at the hospital with a patient having a scary labor but I had already been discharged. I mentioned how today he introduced us to the other doctors in his practice because I will be seeing one of them for a followup next week, and he just wanted us to know the other one because she is often the Attending Dr in the ER so if I ended up back there he'd want me to know her as well. He scheduled me for a follow up u/s in five days for our peace of mind, saying that usually they wait two weeks but he thinks it would help me sleep if I got checked next week, and then again the following week. Really Great Guy.)
He told me that he really thinks I'm going to be fine. And baby is going to be fine.
E asked me if I heard him, and then asked the doctor to repeat his words, and he (the doc) took my hands, and looked me in the eye, and said that he really thinks this is going to work itself out and be just fine.
I really want to believe him.
