Grace Baby’s heart rate was a strong 177, so proud! I was so happy to hear this because Dr. Read had said one of the effects of all the fluid could be it hurting the heart. Not as of now. All the fluid is still present…it looks like a halo around her body. All my vitals checked fine, too.
Dr. Pohl discussed a ton of “what ifs” with us and answered all the questions I had from my specialist visit. I am so glad that I already have a relationship with him. He respected me and how I wanted to deliver the first time around….he was patient with my body and let it progress naturally instead of wanting to rush things. He listened to me and wanted the best for us. And I feel that he wants the same the second time around. So I trust him! I trust in what he says, what he suggests, what he thinks…that he does these things for the best outcome for our baby.
But I place all my Trust in God and what His plan is for us. If He wants our Grace Baby, He will have her. If He wants the fluid to disappear and for her to be a healthy baby here with us….He will make it happen. My heart aches for those who put all their trust in doctors….they don’t have all the answers! And because of this…some can never be at peace. I am, right now, at peace.
We are taking things week by week!
Now on to the advice….since Zoe is now sitting up on her own, naps have become a whole lot more challenging. She just sits there and cries! The whole separation anxiety thing has hit full force the last couple weeks. I totally thought I beat it….wrong!
And let me say a humungous THANK YOU to all of you! I can just feel all your prayers surrounding us. And I cannot express enough how much this means to Zach and me. We are so blessed!
