So we got good news today.
Not great, but much better than what we heard just 3 weeks ago.
Lauren is right on track at 23 weeks exactly today.
Her organs are functioning normally, her little heart is just beating away, she was curled up like a roly-poly for most of the ultrasound and had her face covered. She sure is shy!
The fluid has increased and is now considered to be within the normal range.
I'm still at risk for a couple reasons, one being just the history of low fluid in this pregnancy. They will do another ultrasound in 8 weeks (August 27th) to see where we're at.
Second, there is still no fluid protecting Lauren from things on the outside since the fluid remains in pools to the side of the baby. It's nervewracking to see the ultrasounds, the specialist has to go hunting for the fluid.
The doctor did remind me that because I had low fluid, it can easily go back down. "Keep doing whatever you're doing" she told me.
I'm just so glad we don't have such a scary timeline for birth.
Hopefully the visions of the NICU fairies will stop dancing in my head now.
Have a great 4th of July weekend!
