Yesterday was our last visit with our Dr. at Hunterdon. It was a little sad. We have been seeing them for twice a week for the past two months. They have seen me at my best and worst. They all have been so wonderful to me and my husband. They will be missed.
The appointment went well. Sydney cooperated for them so they did need to chase her with the heart monitor like usual ( she has quite the reputation in the office). Her Bio-physical looks great and mommies blood pressure went down. So all went well. We go to CHOP on fri. I hope they will beable to give us a date. I am hopeing for the week of Nov. 10 ( 37 weeks.). Lets keep our fingers crossed. I will keep you posted.

Today Sydney had a great visit at the doctors. Mommy did not though. My bloodpressure was 160/90 and I needed to be monitored. Now the Dr. wants me to be on modified bedrest. This should be interesting with Gary and the kids. The Dr is afraid of pre-eclampsia. This pregnsncy is going to kill me yet!
Syd is head down and is doing really well. We have one more visit on tues. in Jersey then we are off to Philly. We only have about a month left. Now the anxiety is starting. I am so ready to have my body back, I am not ready to deal with the what happens after part.
Thank you for all the prayers and support.

Yesterday we had another ultrasound and NST. Miss Sydney was too busy swimming around in all the extra fluid to let her heartbeat be monitored. As soon as they put the belt on she is off. Thank goodness I can feel her and the Docs can see my stomache move all over the place. We are not contracting yet, so that is good. Sydney looks really good. I only have two more visits in Jersey and then we go to CHOP. I am looking forward to going. We always find something new when we go down. I am not sure what they are going to say in terms of staying there. Not really looking forward to leaving my kids. I am hoping we can work something out.
Thank you for all the prayers and support. I will keep you posted

Today we had another ultrasound and NST. Everything looks good with Sydney. She is growing and heart is strong. She is still breeched, but the Dr. said it had alot to do with the extra fluid. My fluid is up tp 30 now. When they placed the monitor on me Syd went crazy again. We got about 5 min of constant heartbeat out of 20. She is a stinker. Not much going on.I will keep you posted.
Thank you all again for all the prayers and support.

32 weeks 3days

Yesterday we had another ultrasound and NST. Everything looks good. Sydney is definatly breathing! Fluids are staying put at 28 so that is also good. The NST was interesting. ( Note to self: No more Hot Chocolate befor NST). Sydney would not stay still long enough for her heartbeat to be registered. We know she was ok because of the waves moving across my belly. The Dr. finally held the thing and we did hera some beats, but then she got pissed and started beating on the thing. BOY ARE WE IN TROUBLE!!
We have another appointment on fri so we will keep you posted.Thank you for all the sup[port and prayers.

Today we had another Dr. visit and ultrasound at Hunterdon Medical. My fluid jumped from 23 on Tues. to 28 today. I also gained 4 pounds since Tues. YIKES!!! Anyway, the ultrasound tech is pretty sure that she has a diaghram. It is very thin but appers to go the lenghth of her chest.You could she it move when she breathes. YEAH!!
The DR. said that this baby has amazed all the Docs in the office because of the lack of lung tissue and the amount of bowels they thought she would have been still born weeks ago. She is so strong and growing at the perfect rate. Six weeks ago CHOP told us she had a bilateral hernia and that it is very uncommon for babies to survive. Now she has lung tissue, a good amount at that and a diaphram. I can not wait to go back to chop to see what they say.
We have another visit on Tues. I will keep you posted.Thank you for all your prayers and support.
