This ultrasound was taken last Thursday at our Perinatologist appointment. He is my little trooper. According to the ultrasound, I have scar tissue on my uterus that has formed a bridge over my cervix. At this point, he is unable to move any of his body parts below the scar tissue and is sitting horizontally. This makes us both very uncomfortable and most likely we will have to plan for a c-section.
We also found out that our little guy's left kidney is still enlarged. We have been referred to a specialist at Children's hospital. Once he is born, he will receive antibiotics and an ultrasound to determine what the next steps are.
I've been worried and scared on so many different levels since this ultrasound. I'm scared of surgery and recovery. And I'm worried about what this means for our innocent, baby boy. But I also know there are blessings in every situation.
If the scar tissue wasn't found, I can't even imagine the long and painful labor I would endure. And if the swelling of our baby's kidney wasn't found, we would bring this little guy home and be at a loss for what could be wrong. I am so thankful that these issues were detected early.
Even though we live thousands of miles away from family and most of our friends, they have surrounded me with encouraging thoughts and prayers that has reminded me of God's truths.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
