Update from Doctor

Great appointment today with my doctor. He saw more fluid than last time and thinks that it's the most fluid he's seen since this first happened. While it is just a fraction of what most babies have at this point, it was encouraging news for us. Any fluid is better than no fluid at all! Everything else with the baby looked good. She had her little hand up to her mouth like she was trying to suck her thumb (just like her sister!).

I really believe that God is answering our prayers for our Maggie. To all of you praying out there, thank you so much. It means so much to us. Please keep praying thought because we still have a long way to go.

Here is how you can pray for us:

Right now, the biggest threat to the baby and me is infection. So pray that God would protect us from all infections. Also, pray that I can make it as close to 35 weeks as possible (they will not let me go past that). The earlier she is born, the more problems that can arise. With so little fluid it is important for her to stay in there as long as possible. Most importanty, pray for our precious baby to develop normally and be healthy when she is born. And pray that she can breathe!
