Surgery now knowing I was Pregnant
kofiernest posted:
Hello all, on December 26th my wife found out that we were pregnant. Before this news on November 30th she had back surgery which took about 2 hours. A week before the surgery she also took several MRI's and X-Rays for a back sergeant. We saw the Gyn and after an ultrasound he told as that she was eight weeks and five days pregnant. The ultrasound did not show the baby. There was a heartbeat, which I think is good. We told him about the surgery and he advised us to go see a genetic counseling so we are waiting for our appointment. We are both stress and very afraid for the health of the baby and my wife. Does anyone have any experience similar? Any advice and help will be great. Thanks
