Thankfully, the ultrasound tech was unbelievably kind as she began the scan. They told me the baby was measuring at 12 weeks - not the 14 weeks we knew we should be looking at. After a minute, the tech asked her supervisor, who had come in to assist, “I’m having trouble finding the baby’s heartbeat. Can you help me?” Without turning around, the supervisor said, “There’s no need.”
And then she walked out the door.
