Britta - It's difficult to even imagine how stressful this must be for you as a mama. Indeed what you've described is every parent's worst nightmare. All my prayers go out to you for this to be a scare over nothing serious. When will you know more?
All you can do right now is try to let the Lord carry you a while. Keep us posted. All of us on here are in your corner - so you have people all over the world sending prayers and positive energy right now to you, your DH, your DD and your little guy on the inside.

Thank you for all the prayers and thoughts! We had a full afternoon of doctor's visits and she was handed over to a hematologist/oncologist. She has a CT scan first thing in the morning with tons of blood work, then the oncologist will meet with the surgeons and they'll come up with a plan of action. We will meet tomorrow afternoon to discuss the findings of the CT scan and schedule a biopsy. After that we will know more what we are dealing with!
Seeing all of these little kids getting their chemo treatments today was heartbreaking and I don't want to join them! I am trying to hold it together, as is DH, but we are both just on the verge of tears at every minute. We have a wonderful support group and lots and lots of people praying. Her pediatrician just called me (at 8pm) just to check in. She was thinking about us all day and couldn't wait through the weekend to hear an update. She also feels like this has totally been an act of God, bringing about all of her strange symptoms and what not so we could find this now. I feel like we have an amazing team of doctors working with us!
I had my prenatal appt this morning and my blood pressure was high...shocking! I am measuring a week ahead, no big deal, but baby seems just fine! I asked about how this stress will affect the baby and he said it should be ok. He is going to monitor me closely again, just to be sure, though!
Anyway, when we know more I will share! Until then, we are praying!!!!!
