28 weeks and she is doing fine

As you know, if you know our story or have read my blog.  We had a perfect pregnancy last year with our son Benjamin but we found out at 28 weeks it was not so perfect.  28 weeks was the time when we found that our Benjamin had hydrops, which means he had fluid in his chest and abdomen.  Anyway, because of this we have been watching our growing little girl closely.  Everything has shown to be OK and once again the ultrasound shows that she is right on track.  It was such a blessing to hear this information form the Dr. who delivered our precious Benjamin.  It was nice to see him again in a different setting.  It also brings tears to my eyes as I so wish things could have been different for our baby boy.  It's hard to explain.  I don't want to miss out on the joy that we are having with our baby girl but Benjamin is never far from our minds.  I am at the point where I am experiencing things that I did not get to do with Benjamin.  Simple things I wish I could have had with him. 

We are so excited.  She weights about 3 pounds now and her heart rate is 153.  This little girl is going to come into this world and stay with us.  I believe that with my whole heart.  I just can't believe it is going to happen in 2 1/2 months!!  Based on the last 2 ultrasounds she is due to be welcomed into this world around Oct. 3rd.  So it may be the first week of October rather than the 2nd week.  No matter what she will be here before Oct.13th.  My OB doctor feels it is safer for her to enter the world than to remain in my belly any longer than that (meaning not past my due date).

Once again thank you for your prayers and comments.  They mean so much!!
