Update on Baby Reece
We had to go in yesterday to see the doctor because my BP was up and I woke up with swollen ankles and hands. The doctor said I also had a small amount of protein in my urine, but she wasn't going to worry at this time. She just said that there's a very fine line between normal high BP and pre-eclampsia. So, they have decided to see us twice a week now for Non Stress Tests on Reece.
We also got an U/S done yesterday...Reece looks great. She still has plenty of amniotic fluid and is measuring perfect...right at the 50th percentile. She weighs 3 lbs. and 15 oz. She's looking a little squished in there. Thankfully she's head down now because at one point she was breech. Seeing her again just made us want her here so that we can hold her and love on her, but we also know that she's better off staying put for several more weeks.
Our doctor did tell us that we just need to be ready because pre-eclampsia can happen over night and we would deliver her immediately. She also reminded us that if we haven't had her by 38 weeks, she will induce because the last two weeks are hard on the baby when the mom has high BP. We are 31 weeks and 4 days today.
To all of you TTC...hang in there. I pray that you will be as blessed as were are. There's not a day that goes by that we take being pregnant for granted...we truly consider it a blessing and are very, very thankful.
There are new pictures of the U/S on our facebook page...check them out.
Misty, Carla and Reece
