Fourteen weeks ago it just seemed impossible that we would make it this far. But what is impossible for men, is possible with God. He has sustained Maggie and me and has seen us through the ups and downs. We are so thankful to Him for what He has done and are praying that in the end His marvelous works will be evident for all to see in Maggie's health.
I just had a sonogram and they zoomed in on Maggie's face and guess what? She was breathing in fluid! The fact that there has been enough fluid for her to learn that breathing reflex that she will use outside the womb is amazing! I loved seeing her precious face. She looks just like her sister. They also had saw fluid in her bladder- yeah!
We are thankful for the good news. 28 weeks is a huge milestone because in normal pregnancies, babies born at this time have a 90% survival rate and the risk of abnormalities goes down significantly. Now I know our situation is different but still it's huge. Our goal is 6 more weeks. That's a drop in the bucket compared to 14!
We are not ceasing to pray for Maggie. I know she is in God's hands but I just can't imagine my life without her in it.
