2 weeks in hosp. Growth U/S 27 weeks 6 days today

So has happy as I should be, yet disturbed. They have taken my IV out (for now) and they stopped monitoring the baby B 24/7. Though I was miserable and tired of the belts cutting into my back and round circles on my belly that became quite painful, I would rather know my baby has a good heart beat still. They are only putting baby and contraction monitor 3x a day for 20 minutes. I slept w/o the monitor last night and put it back on this morning and was on it for about and hour and the nurse actually came in the room and turned it off because I was on it "to long" GOD FORBID HE DECELERATED ANY OTHER TIME!

Why this disturbs me: I had my growth ultrasound today for weight etc.
A. (Jacob) measures at 2lbs 11oz and 28 weeks 3 days in size his fluid has maintained around 12ish for the last 3 days now YEAH! BPP normal at 8/8....though I did not get the weeks measurement 2 weeks ago apparently he has had no weight gain in 2 week last weight was est. at 2lbs 12oz
B. (Logan) Poor little guy just looks so sickly and anorexic on the ultrasound. His est. weight is 1lb 10oz though the tech said due to the very low fluid she was unsure how accurate it was because he is hard to see. measures t 25 weeks 6 days and his fluid today was 0.7cm BPP (which I am sure I will have the joy of having it redone later today) was 4/8 due to low fluid and not making breathing motions.

C. (Andrew) LOL the normal child is fine. His weight was est. at 2lbs 9oz and measures at 27 weeks and 4days. His BPP 8/8 and his fluid level was 4.28

Haven't talked to the doctor yet about what the plan is. I just wonder how long they are going to let B sit in there not growing in no fluid! I will be 28 weeks tomorrow I know they were trying to at least get past that point. I just don't know what to think anymore. I know I will be upset if they die from coming out to soon and prob more upset if B dies from not coming out. Such a hard call but I honestly think he has a better chance being delivered at this point than staying in. Oh well not up to me I suppose. All in God's hands. Thank you everyone for all your support and words of encouragement.

  1. Hi Jen, just wanted to let you know that I'm praying for you and your babies, and to send a hug your way.

    I was part of the LPOM before we moved to North Dakota and got the link to your blog through the group website.

    I'll be thinking and praying for all of you. And praying for wisdom for the doctors to make the right move for the health of you, and your precious babes.

    Many hugs, Ashley
