Today went....well it went. There is now 2 kidneys......TWO!!!!! They can also see the artery so they are most certainly there, however, the fluid levels are still low so they think the kidneys are not functioning at par but hey, 10 weeks ago there were none so we'll take two that are only partly working, God can fix that and so can we! That still poses the question of the lungs though. That we still will not know until the baby is born. Our high risk said he thinks they are horseshoe kidneys, fused together but still functioning. He said if this is the case chances are there was a tiny bit of fluid all along so the lung status may be better then predicted last week. All I know is the doctors are baffled at what is going on. We still do not know anymore then we did but things continue to improve. We still are planning on delivery at 37 weeks, September 7th and depending on what happens with the baby, whether its born screaming or born struggling to breathe and what level of care the baby can receive all depends on what happens in 8 weeks. They did say there are tests they can do in the meantime to possibly predict the outcome but it'd be closer to 34 weeks (so 5 more weeks from now) Other good news...baby is growing right on track 2.5lbs and I forget the length but it was right on track. The baby passed the bpp with flying colours and looks happy in my belly as of right now. We will be getting tests every week until 32 weeks then every few days and then every day. We still have not determined when I will be admitted we have to talk to the doctor about that next week. If the fluid levels stay the same I am at risk for pre-term labour and stillbirth so we'll want to monitor that 24/7 after 32 weeks, but more about that at our next appointment.
They did say that because the kidneys are now there, there is a greater chance it is genetic so we'll have to do more testing. It was a long day 7:30-4:30. We popped out and got some belly butter but it's not working as well as well as the Bella B...but it'll have to do for now. So all we know is it's just more waiting and monitoring but we have a great support system, plenty of things to think about the next few weeks. We still do not know the gender, the little bugger is keeping that a surprise but that's okay he/she is too busy working on kidneys and lungs. Oh and my placenta seems to be moving up so its more likely a natural delivery which is so much better for the baby, hoping it keeps moving up. I'd write more but my brain is fried, long day at the hospital and so much to take in....
