Evidence of J

I know this is going to sound very weird, but I just received access to my medical records via a new online service called PatientSite (that's not the weird part). I looked up my records for my current problem, but also, right there, were the records from the ultrasound and CVS procedure we had when we were having J tested prenatally for NF! It really was just about 10 years ago! Look at this!

Approved: MON FEB 1,1999 3:45 PM
Procedure Date:02/01/99

EARLY OB ULTRASOUND AND GUIDANCE FOR CVS:
LMP : 11/20/98. AN INTRAUTERINE GESTATIONAL SAC IS SEEN AND A SINGLE LIVING EMBRYO IS IDENTIFIED WITH A CROWN-RUMP LENGTH OF 39 MM REPRESENTING A GESTATIONAL AGE OF 10 WEEKS AND 6 DAYS. (this is J!)
THIS CORRESPONDS SATISFACTORILY WITH THE MENSTRUAL DATES OF 10 WEEKS AND 3 DAYS. THE PLACENTA IS FORMING ANTERIORLY. THERE ARE NO ADNEXAL MASSES AND THERE IS NO FREE FLUID. SONOGRAPHIC GUIDANCE WAS PROVIDED CHORIONIC VILLUS SAMPLING WHICH WAS PERFORMED TRANSVAGINALLY BY DR. A.
POST PROCEDURE SONOGRAM DEMONSTRATED NORMAL EMBRYONIC CARDIAC ACTIVITY. IMPRESSION: SINGLE LIVE INTRAUTERINE PREGNANCY. ULTRASOUND GUIDANCE FOR CVS.
For some reason, I'm finding this very moving. It was really hard going through that CVS procedure and not knowing whether we'd continue the pregnancy or not. But somehow it all worked out. And here I am, 10 years later, kind of in a similar place. Maybe, once again, it will all work out?
