UPDATE

We met with the perinatal specialist this morning and had good news from him! Baby Girl Banks is growing really well - she's not being impeded by the blood flow issues between her umbilical cord and the placenta. In fact, today she measured a full 12 days ahead of her gestation date. Oh, and she's about 4 pounds 5 ounces - I think I'm reading unreliable information because I really truly believed she'd be about 2.5 pounds right now. But no. She's a good grower!

We see Peggy on Monday so I'll have more information to share then. I'm sure she'll expound on what the specialist saw today...

The final word from the specialist, though, is that she's looking great so there's no reason we can't carry her to term. What an answer to prayer!

More soon.

I'm so glad for the good news. I have been praying for you guys. If you don't remember who I am, I'm Karina's friend from childhood. My mom sent me Susan's email about you guys and your baby girl. I'm so glad things will be ok.

SUCH GOOD NEWS!!! Oh, what a relief! How are you feeling? Is the baby still just as active as ever? Hope all continues to go well these last couple months! So, would you have a chance to connect next weekend when I am down for my PT course? I will be busy Friday and Sat 8-5, but otherwise free... Let me know! :o)
