Update to L&D Visit

Phil and I went to see the high risk OB in Indianapolis yesterday. After the ultrasound he came in to tell us that everything looked fine. He thinks my fluid looks less, but not low enough to be concerned. He also said my placenta is large and healthy and probably making it difficult to see all of the amniotic fluid. Lillian's kidneys are functioning properly, and she should be producing more fluid over the next couple of weeks.


My regular OB called last night and said he still wants us to cancel our cruise. The bleeding that I had on Saturday was enough for him to still be concerned, and he would prefer that I take it easy and continue to be monitored. I'll have another ultrasound at his office in two weeks to make sure the fluid is increasing. He's also going to call the Dr. at my local hospital that viewed the two ultrasounds over the weekend since he is the one that was very concerned with the low levels of fluid.

I'm so grateful to have a doctor that cares so much about my well being, and the safety of our baby. We are also grateful for so many prayers from friends and family. Hearing the good news was like finding out we're pregnant all over again! There's just no way to describe how relieved and happy we were to know that Lillian is alive and well and so far has no complications.

I'm still a little concerned about the possibility of a small leak (probably just being paranoid) so I'm taking the rest of this week off work, and possibly next week.

THANK YOU to everyone that kept us in their thoughts and prayers!
