The skinny

It's been quite a while since a post was written here, even though I vowed to begin again and keep everyone more informed. All I have right now is baby news and the roller coaster we've been going through. We were told 2 ultrasounds ago that the cyst on the brain was gone but we only have the two-vessel cord and that the baby could have Down's or heart or kidney problems. At the last ultrasound (last Wednesday) the doctor from Children's Hosp. told us he could see no major defects in the heart and the lady doing our ultrasound said she could not see that the head was too much bigger than the body which sometimes indicates Down syndrome. So we finally left an ultrasound with relief.

Even though they did say I have a ton of amniotic fluid, which sometimes indicates diabetes, I drank the sugar water today and I'll get the results tomorrow. At this point, I don't care. I just want my baby to be healthy. She is also breech so she'll have to work on her already amazing tumbling-keep-me-awake at night skills, but other than that, I think we're doing fine. We got a 4D picture of the baby last time and it just blew my mind away how much we could see. She kept waving her little hands and feet for us, so much that the doctor doing the echogram was getting pretty frustrated and not at all impressed with our baby's tumbling moves.

I hope everyone else out there still reading this is doing well and I thank all of you for your kind words during our difficult journey. Not only getting pregnant, but staying pregnant, and eventually through the birth of our baby.

Have a wonderful week!!

    We're still here - thinking good thoughts for you and baby Isabella. I think it's awfully cute she was doing tumbling moves - maybe a future gymnast?

    What relief you must have felt! They really shouldn't tell people what they think until they know for sure. Just causes undue stress because of worry. I'm so glad for you! Take good care of yourself and don't worry about diabetes..I have it...you'd be fine.
