Last Look

I had an ultrasound today.  I wasn’t expecting to have another ultrasound, but my new doctor wanted to know the location of the placenta, which was not included in my medical records from the US (in fact, there was no information at all from my last u/s at 18 weeks 5 days).  But also to […]
