Fast Forward to Our First Ultrasound

Around week 15 (October 22nd 2008) I went in for an ultrasound due to some light spotting I had one night. They did not find a cause for the spotting, but they did find another problem. The ultrasound tech said it looked like a cyst in the kidneys and that the bladder was distended, but could offer no other information. There were no doctors there at that time to explain anything. The nurse told me not to worry, everything would be fine and they would get me a referral to a perinatologist for high risk pregnancies. I wanted to cry just knowing that there was a possibility of something being wrong, but held back my tears since I did not know if the problem was even a serious one.
