Baby Update

Here is the latest update on our still "Unnamed" Baby Boy. We went to the Perinatologist yesterday where they performed a full anatomy scan (i.e. sonogram) of the baby in an effort to see if they could find the echogenic bowel that was detected in my OB's office. Indeed, the Echogenic Bowel was still present. However, the Doctor was very optimistic as my OB was the week prior.

The odds are in our favor that this is a perfectly normal Baby, but noone can 100% tell us this without performing an amniocentesis. We declined this procedure since the risk of complication from the amnio greatly outweighed the odds of their being an abnormality with the Baby. We will go back in Six Weeks for another scan so that they can re-check the bowel. Our prayers are that it will disappear over the next few weeks and they won't be able to see anything at all!

I will certainly pray for the issue to resolve itself! Obviously right now I'm sure of God's ability to perform miracles!

This is the first I am hearing of this. What does that mean?

Praying sweet friend.
