We have passed the 28 week mark, which is a big milestone and means that the odds are much more favorable for healthy delivery of the babies, with less risk for major complications such as significant brain bleeds, lung development, and many other things. Thank you all for your continued prayers! If we can make it another 4 weeks, it would be great.
The babies have grown so much in the past 4 weeks! We visited the MFM doctors this afternoon for updated growth measurements and to get an update on Baby C. New weight estimates for the babies are: Baby B has taken over at 3 lbs. (!); Baby A is right behind him at 2 lbs., 11 oz.; and Baby C continues to grow steadily but is still the smaller one at approx. 2 lbs., 1 oz.
We had a different technician this time and she was in a hurry to get out for the holiday weekend, so we didn’t get to see any 4D images this time, but she did do some profile images for us on the regular sonogram (below). Baby C was sucking his thumb when she took the picture.
Some very good news – the MFM doctor said that it looks as though Baby C’s CAM growth has shrunk, and he is optimistic that is may still resolve itself in the next couple of weeks, which is what we have been praying for and would be the best case scenario. He said that in his opinion, based on what they can see right now on the sonogram, it does not appear that Baby C will require emergency surgery or immediate intervention right at birth to deal with the CAM.
