So this is the first time I've written on our blog. Jess insisted that I write this one, not quite sure why.
This morning we had another growth check to see if the last two weeks in the hospital has had any impact on baby "c".
It started out with baby "a" who is progressing along very nicely. His head and stomach are symetrical and his legs and arms are growing as expected. He's currently weighing in at 2lbs 5ozs.
Next was baby "b" who is also progressing along very nicely. His head and stomach are also symetrical and his legs and arms are growing as expected. And what do you know, he also weighs in at 2lbs 5ozs.
Ok...enough messing around. I know why you're all here...
Baby "C" is doing amazingly well. The two weeks in utero at the hospital have definitely helped. Since our last appointment 14 days ago he's gained 5oz compared to 2oz at the last growth check. He's currently weighing in at 1lb 5oz. For those of you who aren't pregnancy savy, growth is measured in days. In the last 14 days since the last growth check he's grown the equivalent of 11 days. For comparison, at our last appointment it had been 13 days and he had only grown the equivalent of 4 days, so needless to say a large impovement. Dr. P is amazed at what's happening. Although this is very good news we aren't completely out of the woods. He still has absent distolic flow (but no reverse flow) and Jess is borderline pre-clampsia. For now we continue to monitor and see how things go. The promising news is that Dr. P had us schedule another growth check for 30 weeks, confident we'll make it that far.
God truely does answer prayers. Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us. It's amazing how many of you there are.
So for now we wait...
