what a horrible monday.

sorry in advance for the lack of capitalization, i am typing this one handed while in a labor and delivery room.

today at my twice a week appointment ... well it didn't go well. They did measurements and discovered he's measuring at 25-27 weeks, which is pretty bad because he is supposed to be right at 29. so they checked out the umbilical cord, and I guess its not working up to speed. they think that he's notbeing given the nutrients he needs to grow, which is really bad because of the heart thing. Also he has decreased fetal movement, we could barely get him to move even after taking the nasty glucose drink.

So my Dr. wanted me to go to the U (where I have to deliver) to monitor him and potentially deliver him. We are currently at the U of U hospital, and hooked up to all sorts of monitors that can't find the heart beat (we can hear a lot of movement though).

At this point all we can do is wait and see. We are worried, but hopeful.

The really ironic thing is that it has been exactly 10 weeks since we first got the initial "something might be wrong" ultrasound. We were really hoping to keep him in as long as possible, and at this point we are just hoping for the best. We will try and keep you all updated.
