Dr. Visit didnt go like it normally does , but we had a little bit of progress!
The Dr. appointment didn't go as I had hoped for today. The office was a bit hectic due to another mother giving birth and one of the regular Dr.s I see every week is out of town for work and there was a different ultrasound tech there too! Usually the 2 doctors and the ultrasound tech each do a measurement and then give me the average but today only one doctor and I am really not even sure if the tech did a measurement, but we did get a little better on the head lung ratio it is now a 2.4.Dr.Yang said that the lungs are not as bright ( the gel made them appear bright on the ultrasound) so there is a chance that the gel is dissolving. We knew this would happen but just had hoped that the gel would have stayed in there for a bit longer. It is not totally gone but we think it might be dissolving he said it is hard to tell. I am happy to hear there was a bit of an increase in the ratio I guess I just had hoped for more.I asked if they had set a date for me to have the c section but he said they were going to take careful consideration in determining that so once again is is unknown. I am praying that Dr.Yang will be in town when I give birth and he is able to do the surgery on the baby as well ( He had a vacation planned to go home before I came to the Fetal Care Institute), I asked him today and he said he is working on it so we will see. He is an amazing doctor that I know will take great care of my little guy. I hope next weeks visit there is still a little more growth we are hoping to get into the 3's before the gel is gone. Thanks to everyone who is reading this and praying for my little guy weather I know you or not I am beyond thankful for every single prayer he gets.
