Baby Update: Encouraging News!

Thanks for all of your prayers and support. The latest ultrasound revealed that the SCH had shrunk further (10 by 30 mm). Furthermore, from what they can tell from the consistency it looks "old" and will most likely be absorbed in the near future. At this point the SCH is located far away from the placenta which is very encouraging since even the tiniest SCH can be a problem if it touches the placenta. The baby still looks great and is about 4 inches long (much bigger than the SCH). We're breathing a sigh of relief and praising the Lord!

With all of these extra ultrasounds I had been hoping to find out the gender a bit early. The 15 week scan, however, showed a modest baby who was very good at keeping secrets. Maybe we'll get more cooperation two weeks from now.

In other news, Sam is stuck on what he thinks is the perfect baby name: Dumbo. Dumbo Drury.

Oh Mandy! What a relief! I am so glad to hear this and was thinking of you and praying for the baby this week!

Mandy, that's good news to hear that things are going better.

As for Sam's comment when I was younger and mum was carrying Allyson. Mum asked me and Lisa what name would go well with Allyson. Lisa promptly responded with, Alice in Wonderland.
