We had an ultrasound yesterday and they measured the girls’ growth. Valencia was measuring about a week ahead (32 weeks, 5 days) at about 4.5 lbs. That is very good. Laurencia was measuring about a week behind, maybe more like 3 lbs, but with her it’s difficult to get an accurate measurement. The monitoring is also going well showing no signs of cord compression.
I was able to get an image of Laurencia (below) from yesterday and as usual, it was so hard to see her and to really imagine what is to come.
I’ve been spending much of my time trying to prepare for Monday. It’s been very difficult. Also, I continually think about and pray for my nephew, Benedict.
I will try to update tomorrow if I can but in the event I don’t, the plan is still to have the c-section on Monday at about noon. I may have my sister post here or to Facebook that the babies are born, their weights and whether they are alive but we will need lots of time as a family after the surgery so information may not come very quickly after that. I will do my best but will need to spend every second with our girls and my little family that I can.
Thank you all for your continued prayers, support, love, care and concern.
