I went to the FCI last Thursday the 9th , it was 4 weeks past my intervention surgery. As I have said before we expected the head lung ratio to go down and it did. The ratio went from a 2.8 to a 2.1 not sure yet what the lung volume is yet ( Before the surgery it was only 12%). This is the 1st Thursday since we found out the diagnosis that we have not had an appointment, I must say I would rather have the appointment so I know what is going on. Next week we go back and we are hoping that the ratio goes up a lil bit more and that he weighs close to at least 4 lbs** Keeping my fingers crossed**
I had a regular prenatal appointment on Tuesday and everything looks good. She was happy to see that I gained 3 lbs so that brings me to a total of 8 lbs :) I am measuring at 32 weeks but I was only 30 at the time but she said I have been measuring 2 weeks ahead of time so it is nothing to worry about.
I find it crazy that tomorrow I will be 31 weeks it is all coming to fast. In one way I am excited to get him here but on the other hand with the odds stacked against us I would rather him stay in there for another 30 weeks. Even with all the complications I have had I have loved being pregnant. Those lil kicks that I get from him just melt my heart I cant help but love them, even the rib shots <3
I had a conversation with my husband the other day that I never would have though I would need to have before I even see my baby. What are we gonna do if the worst thing happens.... It is something that I know I need to kinda think about b/c if anything happens I wont be in the right state of mind to think of anything but I feel like if I even think about it than I am giving up hope and hope is all I have.
Everyday that passes I get more and more scared for what he is going to have to go through and the road we are about to go down.
**For now we pray that
-He stays put safe and sound right where he is at until the Dr's say it is ok for him to come( min of 43 days)
-Continue lung growth and volume
-NO ECMO when he does come
Thank you for everyone who is reading this and the continue prayers that we are getting, I wish I could thank each and everyone of you.
