Since we began our infertility journey, we have always fallen into the small percentage.
Whether it was a good or bad thing.
30% chance Kyle's surgery wouldn't work.
1-5% of getting pregnant on our own.
20% chance of miscarrying.
We lost our 1st baby.
1 out of 2000 babies are born with an isolated cleft palate.
Our baby has a cleft palate.
1 out of 14,000 babies' cleft palates are linked to a syndrome called Pierre Robin.
Our baby has isolated Pierre Robin Syndrome.
1-5% chance of having another child with a cleft palate or Pierre Robin.
Only God knows.
I am scared out of my mind for our future children. We saw a geneticist for Raegan and they did genetic testing to rule out any other syndromes that go along with Pierre Robin and a cleft palate.
Her results came back normal.
They tell me not to worry.
But how can I not. Every time someone gives me the "chances" of something and end the statement with "but don't worry it's a small percentage," I can't help but scoff.
I believed what they said so many times and then we would fall into the "small percentage" yet again.
I try not to focus on all of the small percentages we have and may fall into in the future.
Because one of the best percentages we ever fell into, was the 60-70% chance of IVF success.
In the end, she is worth all of it.
