Reassurance scans

What if the scan shows a problem? What is an ultrasound scan? An ultrasound scan sends sound waves through your womb uterus. These waves bounce off your baby as echoes. Hard tissues, such as bone, reflect the most sound waves and so make the biggest echoes. These appear white in the image, and soft tissues appear grey. Fluids, such as the amniotic fluid surrounding your baby, appear black. This is because the sound waves go through them with no echoes. The person performing the scan sonographer will look at these different shades to interpret the images.

My dr says he thinks everything’s fine. Can’t help but be worried as it’s my first pregnancy.

About two to three weeks ago while changing my ostomy, I noticed an off white area on my stoma. At first sight I thought it was a piece of adhesive from my appliance that rolled up on my stoma. Since I believed it to just be adhesive I attempted to get it off. Idiot Disclaimer for myself: Okay back to the point, my mind started to race.

I called all my doctors and started to make appointments to figure out what was going on. This is the picture I took with my phone the first time I saw it. The first appointment with my surgeon a couple of days after finding the white area was scary.

What should I do? Here are a few things to consider: When a woman is upset about something, most women talk to their friends and lean on their support group. Guys, on the other hand, typically view themselves as weak and incapable if they voice their feelings or lean on other people for help or support. The way women handle difficult emotions is much more psychologically healthy and healing, but it is what it is. Next, make sure that you give him space the right way.

What does that mean? If you start offering help or support to him, a lot of guys will actually resent it. Playing therapist typically backfires for the reasons stated above. When he feels relief from you, it will be easier for him to work out his own issues. Finally, on that same note:
