Baby Chip Is Growing--Slowly

We have now officially hit 28 weeks and 1lb 13oz, which is in the less than 1% range. But hey, it's growth.

The amniocentesis results came back 100% normal and they did a microarray as well, which tests for a ton of minute stuff. Praising God for that. The doctor who did the amino said she was shocked the amnio came back normal, especially given the clubfoot issue.
We're still praying for bloodflow and growth and that Baby Chip can stay inside of me for another nine weeks. The doctors will most likely take him at 37 weeks because with his lungs fully developed he'll be able to gain more weight on the outside after 37 weeks.


The doctor said exercise is good for bloodflow. So here's us hiking Estes Park.



 Right now we're just visiting the doctor every week and waiting for something to change that would necessitate an emergency c-section. Everything is stable at present, however, so the doctors are hopeful that Baby Chip will be able to stay inside for a good bit longer. In a little while, we'll start going to the doctor TWO times a week--joy. Not.

The doctor's goal at present is to get Baby Chip as close to 37 weeks and 3lbs as possible. All prayers for our little guy much appreciated.

  2. I'm so glad to hear this news, Anne. Praying for you and Baby. The docs will continue to be surprised because of Psalm 139.

  3. Praise the Lord for a good amnio result! Praying for Baby Chip and for all of you! The Lord is knitting together every past of this little one; may He continue to sustain your little guy's life and give the doctors wisdom and you peace during these last weeks of pregnancy.
