Yesterday I had my first appointment since being home from Philadelphia. I had 2 ultrasounds since after the first one the power went out and all of the information was lost so we started again. They reviewed the ultrasound and MRI reports from CHOP and hopefully they will be able to utilize the information.
Whitney has a head of hair already. I am very excited about this since all of the Vandersluis children are born bald. I can't wait to see what she looks like. She is currently 2 lbs and 13 oz which is in the 47th percentile for 29 weeks. We were unable to see her back again since she is still in the breach postion and looking very cozy down there. The fluid in her brain ventricles have increased a little to 17mm and 21mm. This is no suprise however we continue to pray that these numbers do not increase. The great news is that her feet are not yet clubbed. We are thankful for this and continue to await her birth watching God work in our little girls body.
My next 2 appointments will be every 2 weeks, Nov 19th and Dec 3rd. We are scheduling a c-section which is looking like it will be during the first full week of January. I can't believe that Whitney's arrival is only 9 weeks away.
