So we had a checkup today....left with more unknowns then before. We had an ultrasound this morning (our baby has a cute butt!) and I wish after what we were told they would have sent us for another one right away. Here's why....the ultrasound tech I had this time was also the one we had the day we found out about Tea and today she pointed out to my husband and I the stomach and bladder and a possible fluid sac, however, our doctor though that the fluid was the cord and that the stomach and bladder were just blood vessels. So we left with even more questions. Is it possible God is slowly granting us a miracle? All I know is we are choosing to continue to have faith, I will continue to drink insane amounts of water and rest as much as I can. We go for a re-check in 3 weeks with another ultrasound, this time to look for the stomach, bladder, kidneys and fluid (as well as the gender as it is still unknown, though I think it's still a girl) but I am praying next time we go that God has slowly been working on his miracle baby and lets some more changes be seen. The good thing is my placenta has moved up so my placental previa is slowly disappearing which means natural delivery (which is what we want).
Maybe the 3D4/D ultrasound will show a bit more. Though there wasn't much fluid we were able to see the baby and tell where things were, like the cute butt and feet and the baby has moved (though I could have told you that) Still in a breech position but on the other side. Also, still turned inwards so getting a good profile pictures was a bit hard, we did get a picture and I'll post once I stop being so lazy. So I am hopeful we will be able to see a few more things with the 3D/4D even with the lack of fluid. I am very excited to see our baby. I hope she is as active as she was this morning during the ultrasound. I'll have to eat some Queso in the car on the way there, get her moving all around.
So here we are not sure what is really going on, our doctor seemed to think the tech didn't really know what she was looking at and still said there is not much hope but he doesn't know the power of God. If things continue to look like there may be a small possibility we may even carry to 40 weeks (not 35 like we planned) though we have to be careful if there is no fluid of a cord accident. So much more to think about, so much more to ponder, so much more hope but reality......I don't even know what to think, say or feel today. All I can do is pray, pray that God is giving us a miracle baby, beat the odds of medicine and science and we ask that people continue to pray for a miracle. Let Matea grow a functioning kidney and let her lungs grow, let our cute little butt baby live and thrive and survive. I am getting sick so it is time to rest and try to wrap my mind around what we heard today.....
Forgot to mention, baby is 1.5 lbs and measuring at 23W4 Days and we are 24W5D so on track so far.
