Baby Update

Yesterday, I went in for another ultrasound to see how big the baby was getting. The baby is about 6 pounds now. So it will probably be around 8 pounds at birth. Not as big as they thought! That is good news!

The lady who does the ultrasound can never really say anything much more than that. And I had an appointment with my doctor today, so she could tell me what she saw.

Well....I never made it to that appointment. My doctor called me bright and early today, saying that she wanted me to head to the hospital for a few test. (not the best thing to wake up to!) From the ultrasound she saw more fluid than normal around the babies head. She said she wanted to get it checked out.

So I called Donnie, and had him come home from work to take me to the hospital. They watched the baby for a few hours. (listening to the heart beat, recording contractions, and baby movement) When they determined that the baby was a okay, I was able to go home.

However, now I get to have this done every week. (one doctor said twice a week) They want to make sure that the fluid is not there because of an infection.

I did get a super cool bracelet from the whole ordeal!
