Baby W - 27 weeks

Today we had the first bio-physical profile of our little man - basically a glimpse into seeing how well he's growing, moving and breathing. They give you a score based on what they see. The best you can get is an 8 and we got a 5 today. What they saw was a lot of what I expected, and things are essentially the same. So no curve-ball was thrown our way and for that I'm thankful.

He lost 3 points because of the low fluid, his breathing was lackluster and his weight was not so hot. But he was moving, kicking and had a nice, healthy heartbeat and that made me happy.

The ultrasound tech didn't give me a number on the fluid level but said it was pretty much the same as before. His weight is 1 lb and 10 oz. He should be at least 2 lbs at this juncture but we expected this as it's typically a result of low fluid.

So, it wasn't a bad visit at all since everything that I was told was pretty much in line with what we were expecting. He's hanging in there and next week will be 28 weeks! A huge milestone to me. Even more amazing is that he will be here sometime in the next two months - I can't wait to meet our son - but definitely not too soon.
