On a follow-up note from my Monday post, there was not too much new to report from my trip to the doctor and the midwife. Initially, Dr. Fuller thought the ultrasound tech's pictures showed the dark space on our baby's palate to be gone, but when he started looking at it himself, he did find it again. He told us that there is a possibility of it being a high arch, but more likely to plan for a cleft palate. In his conversation, he sounded so sympathetic and sweet, and very positive about H4's future. I have appreciated meeting with him both times, though especially on Monday. His first words when he walked in were "I just finished looking at the ultrasound pictures the technician took and you have such a beautiful baby!" He's a very kind man who I can tell genuinely loves what he does, and loves helping out families. He even asked if he could see some follow-up pictures after H4 is born and hear how everything turns out because apparently, the perinatal department rarely gets to see the babies in person after the birth(just for the ultrasound). H1 really liked talking with him too. Here's a 3D of H4!
