34 Week Appointment
Just a quick update to let you know how things are going... We saw Dr. Rowe today and just did a scan to check Maddox's heart rate and my fluid level. The heart rate was good, but my fluid level was very low... a 6. Generally they say they want it between 12 and 20, but they don't start getting concerned until it's 5 or under~ we're getting pretty close to that. The good news is that Dr. Rowe didn't seem extremely concerned and said that because I've been sick for the last 2 weeks, that probably is playing a role.
I will have another appointment next Thursday to check Maddox's measurements one last time. He mentioned that he should hopefully be around 3- 3 1/2 lbs by delivery and that is what we are continuing to pray for at this point.
We are also praying that we will make it to the 5th of February, when I will be just 2 days shy of 37 weeks. From the check today, I am already progressing and my body is beginning to remember what to do amidst all the craziness. So, it sounds like we really could go at any point, but hopefully I can hold on and stick with the plan so our families can be in town... It's like Dr. Rowe said, God is the only one pushing those control buttons!
Thank you again for the continued prayers as we are within a few weeks of the planned delivery. We are doing well and are getting anxious to meet our tiny little addition... Deacon keeps asking and talking about "Baby Maddox" so it will be exciting for them to finally meet!
