Facebook announcement

I had an early ultrasound at 9 weeks to double check my due date as I was not confident of my calculations.  Baby had a great strong heartbeat.  I left that appointment sensing some uneasiness on part of the tech, and intended to call and ask the OB if everything was ok, but did not follw up.  At 11 weeks, the midwife called to say that I needed to come back for an ultrasound at 12 weeks "to check some measurements they were missing."  I went for the ultrasound at 12 weeks and was told that yes, there were definitely some things wrong, but that we would need to go see a specialist for a definitive diagnosis.

At this point, pretty much only family knew I was even pregnant.  On Facebook I wrote, "It's terrible to announce this via Facebook, but better than any alternatives I can think of. I'm ~12 weeks pregnant and due February 17th. But, early ultrasound shows severe issues with the baby's brain development. We are being referred to specialists at Dartmouth and have an appointment on Monday afternoon. Please pray for us."
