I had a routine ultrasound this morning, and it was discovered that the baby has low amniotic fluid. There's actually a diagnosis for it, though I can't remember the correct name for it...olgio something something.
I was very stressed when I returned home, and was waiting for my doctor to call. When he did call, he was very positive and upbeat, and said that besides the low fluid, everything looked great with the baby. We have two options at this point - monitoring the baby with nonstress tests (NST's) or delivering early. The doctor wants to go with the tests at this point, twice a week plus an ultrasound. I had the first NST today, and everything was perfect. So far, so good. The next test is Friday.
She's still very active, and pushing on Mommy's bladder all the time! According to the ultrasound, she's measuring 5 lbs, 8 oz.
Please keep our baby in your prayers, if you would. Pray that she'll remain safe and healthy during the remainder of this pregnancy. And if she needs to come early, please pray for God to help guide the doctors and nurses in determining that.
