As most of you know, James & I had our ultrasound done on Jan. 2nd. Our doctor actually called us on the 5th to let us know that there may be some developmental issues in her little legs. So they referred us to see a pregnancy specialist in the Perinatal department at Scripps La Jolla.
After waiting a painful 18 days...we finally had our appointment yesterday morning, where they did a detailed ultrasound and the results weren't too great. Her right leg isn't as developed as her left...it's 'significantly' shorter than the other. From the knee down...something is wrong. Her right foot may be missing some bone, making the ankle & heel (and possible the rest of the foot) very different & abnormal. On her left (good) foot, we could see exactly where her perfect ankle & heel is. Then on her right foot, it's curved without much definition to the ankle & heel. They made it clear that this is not "club foot"...it's just a growth abnormality that neither of us could have cause OR prevented. Of course as a first time mother...I can't help but think I did something wrong...I have to keep telling myself that this is not the case.
