Update – Choroid Plexus

It has been awhile since I’ve had the opportunity to update this blog. I got pretty involved in the Grand Opening of Common Ground and a lot of things had to be put on hold. However, a lot has actually happened in since the 9/27 post.

First of all, we are at the 30 week point — yup the baby is 30 weeks old!

But what I want to update you on is an issue that came up at one of our OB appointments several weeks ago. Right after my last post, Jen went to the Dr. and was told we’d have to have another ultrasound. (Hmmmmm….. we were told one would be sufficient, unless there were “issues.”) Anyway, the doc said there was an anomaly in the Choroid Plexus part of the brain that should clear up by the 30th week, so she wanted to look at that again.

With little information, but armed with a high-speed Internet connection, I went to work looking for more info. This article explained it best:

If you take the time to read it (or at least skim it), you’ll see why we were a little concerned. So we prayed and put it in God’s hands. You can read more of my thoughts on this in my Life Journal blog:

So, today we go in for our second ultrasound and we should find out if everything is OK. But the added benefit of this US is that we should be able to discover the gender of this little critter.

I remember when we were unable to see the gender during the first US that I thought — “ooooh, maybe we’ll have to have a second US.” Then I remembered, the only reason we’d need a second one is if there are complications. I repented and said, “I’d rather not have complications and leave the gender a mystery.” Be careful for what you wish for…

Anyway, today we should be able to find out what we’re having and that’s pretty exciting!

Thanks for your prayers!

TTYL, gw
