We went to see Dr. Kouri today and had an ultrasound. I love the ultrasounds. It is just amazing to watch Eli for a few minutes. Michelle does such a great job giving us a peek into what our little man is doing. Today we got to see his eyes moving around, his mouth moving, him being a wiggle worm and so much more. Yes, Jamie insisted we take another peek to see if it really is a boy. We are still pretty sure it is. We found out he has turned some. Just not in the right direction. He is almost head up now. He is double feet down, which Dr. Kouri does not like. He says that if he stays in that position that would most certainly mean a c-section, which I DO NOT want. He is not expected to move much more due to the lack of amniotic fluid. He was doing what we thought to be practice breathing today. His chest was moving. Michelle said that is something that they look for in development. He now weighs 2lbs 15oz. That puts him in the 43rd percentile for size. I love every second I get to spend gazing at our sweet Eli. Thanks to Michelle for making it such a meaningful experience. She is just fantastic! According to Dr. Kouri, we are just playing the waiting game now to determine where we will deliver. We go back to Birmingham the first week in March, at that time we will meet with a team of doctors. He wants to see what exactly those doctors have to say. I had somewhat of a scare yesterday. I developed a UTI and began having some contractions. We went in and they put me on antibiotics. Things seem to be better. I have not had anymore contractions. I am not ready to have my little man yet and I thank God for allowing things to work out like they did. I wished that I could just carry him with me forever.
Thank you all for every prayer that is said! Thank you for all of the support you show. Please continue to pray for God's healing hand on Eli. Also, please keep Jamie in your prayers. Tax season is so very busy for him. Pray for strength and safety as he travels to and from Montgomery everyday. We are taking one day at a time and praying as we go. To God be the glory!
