I had my 6 week check up with the gynae yesterday. Frustrating as it was, the first things he asked me after the general small talk was: “Are you planning to have a another baby” and “don’t you want a girl?”
The frustrating part is, he planted a seed of hope.
The Neo-Natal Nurses blatantly told us that we shouldn’t have another baby, Oliver was green enough and the next baby will be worse. This freaked Kobus and I out and we vowed there and then to stop adding to our family.
Yesterday however my doc recommended that we have blood tests done in 6 months time and assess the risk in having another baby.
It can’t do any harm I guess, as long as I don’t put my heart on it. I can get a little obsessive.
