We went back to try the 4d ultrasound on Friday but didn't get any pictures. We had a WONDERFUL trip. I have been exhausted ever since we got back though. We got home about 10:30 Monday night. I will post pics as soon as I get some from Mom - I just used her camera all weekend bc it is smaller.

I went in for my regular OB appointment today. He found a few issues and I am headed to Jackson to see Dr. Perry (the maternal/fetal specialist tomorrow). My amniotic fluid level is low - not critical yet - but it is definitely low. I know it is lower than 8. He said that I may have just been dehydrated and it may come back up but he wants it looked at by a specialist. Ali Anne is also measuring a few weeks behind and only weighs 3 lb 1 oz and she should be weighing close to 4 lb. So that added to the low amniotic fluid level means that I am starting to have some growth restriction. He said that I would deliver sometime between today and 39 weeks. He said Dr. Perry would be able to tell us EXACTLY when we need to deliver. We went to the hospital and did a non-stress test today and everything was fine. Dr. C said I would have these at least once a week if not twice a week until I deliver. So I really don't know much tonight - I will know more tomorrow.

We did get some 4d pictures today. They are not real clear but we were able to see her on the screen pretty well. She looks like me!!! The us tech had to do it through the placenta and the low fluid level didn't help with the clarity of the images.

You and sweet Ali Anne are in our prayers! I know everything will be great and you will be holding that precious girl before you know it. Keep us posted!
