I updated my Facebook friends a few weeks ago so I thought I would let my Blogger friends know too. My appointment in Houston is on August 1st at the Texas Fetal Center. I have not been there yet but I already feel at ease going to them. I will have a fetal MRI, echo, and ultrasound. I will also get to meet up with a few dr's including a pediatric surgeon. I hope they have more information for me than Lubbock did. I also hope they can lay it all down a little gentler than in Lubbock also.
I still feel like I will refuse an amnio. I am not 100% against it but I just feel like whatever the outcome is will not change anything so why not find out when she is born? I also have to keep myself together until she gets here. I will be going back to work (teaching) in a few weeks and do not want more bad news atm. I have gotten a lot better on the emotional roller coaster. I am not sure "accepted it" is the right term but it is something like that.
So as of right now I do not have any real new news. Tomorrow I have a normal OB appointment with my dr in Amarillo. I also have to do the hour glucose test and get a shot of Rhogam--because lucky me has O- blood. I am praying I do not fail the hour glucose. I did with my last baby and had to go for the 3 hour and is was miserable.
So we are leaving tomorrow for Austin, Houston, & Galveston. We are going to make a little trip out of it and visit some family and friends. I am pretty excited about that. I will update as soon as I can after the 1st!
And for my prayer warriors that are praying for me and Sunni---THANK YOU! I am beyond grateful. I am on church prayer requests around Texas (I hear) and probably other states as well. Thank You! God is good and has already answered. I also want to ask that you pray for 3 other babies as well that have already been born with CDH. All 3 are several weeks old and can use your prayers! I have been following their stories through their Momma's blogs and absolutely love them all. Bonnie, Oliver, & Wyatt!
Thank You! <3
And here is a not so flattering picture at 27 weeks....... (I think she is growing :)
