MFM Appointment

Sorry this one is a little late. Friday morning was my appt with the perinatologist. It was obvious that my fluid was low, but the appt still went well considering. We were able to see all her major organs. Some were a little grainy, so they will check them again at my next appt in 3 weeks. She has 2 kidneys and a bladder which was very full. She even peed during the US, so that was a huge relief. They found a good sized pocket of fluid that measured at 3cm before Noodle peed and 4cm after. The doctor felt good with that pocket and said I wouldn't need bed rest at this point unless I started into preterm labor. I left the appt. with a renewed sense of hope. I know that we are not out of the woods yet, but I did/do feel hopeful once again!

I know I said I wouldn't compare this pg with Juanito's and I won't, but I remember leaving my appt. on Dec. 1st of last year being told my fluid levels were fine and that there was nothing I needed to be worried about. 23 days later we found out my fluid was extremely low and just 5 days after that we found out he had passed. My point in all of this is that there are no guarantees in life and we should never take what a doctor or specialist says for granted. We have no control over this and we never will, so we need to be very thankful for every day we are given with our children because we never know when things could change!!!
