Hello just giving a quick baby update AGAIN. 😁
We went for another growth scan yesterday which marks 26 weeks, 4 days and the Genetics Dr. felt that we needed to head to hospital for labor and delivery. So as of now the wife is being monitored and the hope is she can stay until delivery which hopefully will be a few weeks. Either way Detroit Henry Ford Main has one of the best neonatal facilities around so we are in good hands.
Honestly if we didn't have that growth scan appt we would have probably lost the baby considering how low the amniotic fluid was and the poor blood flow due to a non performing placenta. So we are very lucky.
All this come one day after my wife's first birthday in the almost 40 years she's been alive. She was born into the Jehovah's witnesses so she never had a birthday before.
We kept it simple. I made her a homemade complete from scratch marble cake with buttercream frosting and took her to a nice dinner. Low key because we are still under the radar but good nonetheless. (Sadly now I have an almost complete cake sitting at home and we are at hospital.) Glad to be here instead of what could been the alternative.
We do need to be cautious with regards to the blood issue and if her parents show up. With a one pound baby there is a very high chance she will need blood and we can't have our JW family find out so we told the doctors that nobody except for myself has medical information privileges. Her parents still speak to us but might shun if they find out she or the baby needs life saving blood.
So it looks like we are in it for the long haul now. I hope everyone is well and thank you Simon for letting me vent here and thank you to everyone for your continued support and positive energy.
