S P A C E | Seattle, ‘Excerpts from The Dive’

3 September @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$7

‘A shadow under my heart whispered something else. This isn’t going to bode well. In pregnancy, you get weird dreams, but one of them shocked me awake. I saw something happening to my foetus, something not good at all, involving so much blood. I shook Yoshi to consciousness so he could hold, and settle me. That wasn’t even two days before.

That’s how I wound up at Swedish Medical’s high risk unit, on the table, awaiting the needle. The one that got the fluid, for an amniocentesis. Such a big word, and I didn’t even know what it meant at the start. There was so much I didn’t know, before. But I did the research you do when you’re weighing all the risks. One in four hundred babies that get tested spontaneously abort. Did I want to take that risk? Or did I want to chance it that the foetus would be normal, after all, without a birth defect?…’
