On Tuesday I went with "R" to the hospital for her ultrasound appointment. Her dh couldn't make it, so I offered to go with her. The things those machine's can show you is marvelous. When I had my kids the husbands weren't even allowed in for the ultrasound. They couldn't show as much as they do now. I had to say I was very fascinated with it all.
"R's" baby is now 3lb 3oz and is in the breach position. She is 31 weeks, so she is on schedule weight wise for the little one and there is plenty of time for the baby to turn. Other than that both are as healthy as horses!! I will say I couldn't make head nor tail of what the technician was looking at, but the baby was all curled up in the fetal position and could see the baby when she pointed it out to me. I was going to stay behind so I could find out what sex the baby is, but "R" wouldn't let me as she doesn't want to know what sex the baby is!!! Must say I am really looking forward to seeing the little one in January.
On a sadder note though, I would love to ask for your prayers regarding another family. A friend of dd has just had triplets that weren't due until the end of February next year. There are two girls and a boy. Unfortunately one of the girls died right away. The other girl and boy, are only around 1lb and 1lb 8oz in weight. They will be in hospital until next February at least. The parents as well as the babies will need all the the prayers that we can give them.
