Another day, another doctor's appointment.

I feel like I've spent over half of this pregnancy in doctors' offices!
My OB is seriously doubting whether I'll be seeing him again. In fact, he even said that he wouldn't be surprised if Elliot was born before my birthday! My birthday is November 7th, people! Less than two weeks away!
He thinks that my low amniotic fluid and Elliot's tiny measurements are probably the telltale signs of an insufficient placenta. And, if he's right, they'll probably be inducing me after my next ultrasound in Grand Rapids. {On the 4th}
Oh dear, Elliot. Oh dear!

  1. awwww. I hope everything goes okay! My son was in the nicu was a while, and it was no fun. But its a strengthening experience, and it will mean even more when you get to bring him home.

  2. I'll be praying for you an Elliot. Hopefully he can stay a little bit longer. When Tobias was in the nicu there was a grastoschisis baby that was born at 33 weeks and he was doing great. He is now close to go home after 6 weeks in the nicu. I'll keep Elliot in my thoughts!

  3. Thank you!
    And wow, how neat that there was a gastroschisis baby in the NICU, too. Especially since omphaloceles and gastroschisis are somewhat similar conditions. I'm glad to hear the little guy is doing well!

  5. Yes, the minute they decide, we'll be sending out a red cross message and my husband will be on the next available flight to the states. He would probably miss the birth itself though, unless they wait a couple days to do it :(

  8. haha, I'll do my best! I'll probably be that crazy woman who's updating her blog from the delivery room in the beginning of the labor. :) Or I'll have my mom or someone hop on for me!
