I know that I haven't been very good about updating my blog and I fully anticipated writing yesterday, but things just don't always work out the way that we plan. When Josh and I woke up yesterday morning our only discusssion was what to name this baby. Is it a boy or a girl? Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined the news that we would get.
After 2 ultrasounds, we were told that in all likelihood our baby does not have kidneys. If the baby had one kidney, we could cope, but no kidneys is apparently (and obviously) "incompatible with life". The baby looks great. It has a strong heart and is growing right on track. The only sign of a problem is that there is almost no amniotic fluid around the baby. We saw the baby sucking its thumb and looking at us. It looks great, just a little cramped.
We are a little numb right now and trying to figure out what to feel. I am writing only to let everyone that I possibly can know to pray for our baby. We have another ultrasound in 2 weeks. At that time they will make a more final diagnosis. They said there is really nothing that we can do, but I am going to try a light bedrest when Josh is home and will be drinking water like a mad woman to give the baby every chance that we can. Even with all of that, we know that God is the only one that fix our baby right now. Please pray for us and pray for a miracle.
