Clubfoot Guest Blog Post – Part 1
This is a Guest Post from the Lovely Crystal over on Crystal Clear As Mud.
Crystal has a great blog and she is also Canadian. Come Back tomorrow for Part 2 of the Club Foot Series.
While I was pregnant, I always found going for ultrasounds somewhat nerve wrecking since our first pregnancy, before our daughter, ended as a missed miscarriage. Was everything ok? Was the baby growing as he/she should? Am I doing what I should? The questions were always there.
When we found out we were pregnant with our second child it was no different. We had been for an ultrasound at 12 weeks where we heard the heartbeat and saw our baby. All was well.
So we were very excited to go for the ultrasound at 21 weeks, as we were going to find out the sex of our baby! We found out it was a boy – exciting! What we weren’t prepared for was what I happened to notice on the screen. At around 18 weeks, they do a more in depth ultrasound. So they are measuring everything – heart, lungs, head, limbs etc. But the ultrasound technician seemed to continually be going over his feet. That is when I noticed that his one foot looked like a little different than the other.
This is how our clubfoot journey started over 5 years ago now, there have been a lot of ups and downs along the way, which I have described in a series of blog posts so that other can know they are not alone.
