"Miscarriage?" Wu Xiaoxue was in disbelief.
"Yeah, your progesterone levels are so low that it's dangerous."
"Inject me with some medicine." Wu Xiaoxue was a doctor specializing in OB/GYN, so she knew how to protect her baby.
"Is something else wrong?" A bad feeling crept up Wu Xiaoxue's spine when she saw Huo Mian's hesitation.
"You're almost five months pregnant, so I screened you for Down Syndrome, and" Huo Mian crossed her arms and struggled to finish her sentence.
"What? Is my baby at high risk for it?" trembling, Wu Xiaoxue asked.
"Yes, she is." Huo Mian nodded.
Wu Xiaoxue's heart sank when she heard this
Not only was she faced with signs of miscarriage, but her fetus was also at high risk for Down Syndrome?
What's that supposed to mean? There was a great chance that her baby was going to be deformed? How is that even possible?
Wu Xiaoxue and Ning Zhiyuan were both young, and neither of them had any bad habits. Ning Zhiyuan only occasionally had alcohol and rarely smoked. How on earth did this happen?
She had been wanting to screen for Down Syndrome, but she thought she was too young to be at risk; plus, work was really busy, so she put this task on the side burner.
If Huo Mian hadn't done it for her today, she would've been ignorant until the birth of her baby
"Oh my god, what am I supposed to do now?" Wu Xiaoxue was in shock. She began to cry uncontrollably.
Although she and Ning Zhiyuan were in a cold war, she still loved their baby.
Their baby was innocent; she spent so much time and effort in keeping her safe, and now this happened?
"Don't worry, let's deal with the problems one at a time. We may be able to cure your miscarriage symptoms, let me inject you with some medicine to keep your baby safe. You need to calm down, controlling your emotions is critical, don't get depressed or overly nervous," Huo Mian consoled her.
"Does it matter if I keep her or not? If she's deformed, we might as well induce labor now"
Wu Xiaoxue's voice was so coarse that she could barely even finish her sentence
No woman in this world would be able to handle a situation like this, let alone Wu Xiaoxue.
"Your fetus is already 5 months old, and her hands and feet have already developed. If we induce labor right now, not only will you lose your baby, it is also extremely harmful to your body. You're a doctor, I shouldn't have to remind you of these things because you should already know."
"Huo Mian, what should I do now? I really want to give birth to her, I love her." Wu Xiaoxue grabbed Huo Mian's hand as she sobbed, tearing streaming down her face.
When her baby was 4 months old, she did an ultrasound, which revealed that her baby was a girl. Not only was she not disappointed that she was having a girl, she even happily bought her unborn child a bunch of infant dresses.
Now that she was faced with dangers of miscarriage and her baby was at high risk for Down Syndrome, Wu Xiaoxue felt like her entire world was crashing down around her.
"Dr. Wu, calm down, can you let me finish?" Huo Mian sat down beside Wu Xiaoxue and gently patted her back.
Wu Xiaoxue covered her mouth and cried silently
"Just because your baby seems to be at high risk, it doesn't mean that she's going to be deformed. We can't be pessimistic, currently, Jing Capital's Third Hospital is the only domestic hospital advanced enough to give you an amniocentesis, so I suggest that you take a few days off and go there to get a comprehensive checkup. If the baby is healthy, then keep her. If she isn't then that's fine, it just means that you two weren't meant to meet. You're still young, you'll get pregnant again." Huo Mian tried to be gentle in her words.
