I've been thinking a lot lately about what I was doing last year at this time. I was very pregnant with Zadie, and I was blissfully unaware of what the future had in store for us! I was going to the high risk group for weekly ultrasounds because of my abnormally high level of amniotic fluid, a condition called polyhydramnios, but none of those doctors figured out why it was there. I googled that word a hundred million times, but never once stumbled upon Pierre Robin Sequence. In retrospect, I had noticed Zadie's small chin in at least one of the ultrasound pictures, but I had no idea it could mean anything. I had no idea it had a name, micrognathia, and that it would turn out to be the main struggle she would face. So, ladies, pay attention and question everything. But, don't make yourselves crazy because a lot of times, there's nothing you can do before the baby arrives, although preparation is always nice. This is the last ultrasound I had before Zadie was born. Notice the small chin!
