baby dr. update

Good Thursday morning all. Damn with this week's schedule my internal calender is all jacked up.

Anywho, had a dr's appt this morning and got a decent report. I'm doing fine, my weight is great, I've gained 2 lbs from my last appt, but overall I'm still down 4 lbs. Sweet!

Lilli's heartbeat is good, but the last ultrasound showed a lil' something, something. Her right kidney is a tad dialted and I have to go back in 2 weeks for a follow up ultrasound. The doc said it's not severelly dialted but he wants to keep an eye on it. (hopefully) more then likely she just has a big kidney.

I won't lie, I'm a little freaked out. It's hard knowing that she's not 100% perfect and there is the possibility, however slight it might be, that something could be wrong.

So please keep your fingers crossed and prayers/chants/haiku's siad that all works out and Lilli is as perfect as ever.


  1. We will keep your family and especially little Lilli in our thoughts.

  2. Eek, that is scary. *hug* You and Lilli are in my thoughts.

  3. Lilian is great,
    She has a kick ass kidney!
    Conner is the man!

  4. *nods* Just be thankful that we live in this technology age. There was no ultrasound to catch my birth defect kidney disorder so we didn't find out until I was 22 and my kidney function was all ready severely depleted. If found early, there should be nothing to worry about with most any kidney ailment. Since you said it was just one that is dilated, the worst case scenario would be my disorder, chronic unilateral hydronephrosis. My friend's young cousin also has it, found at the 20 week ultrasound and she still has 100% function to do medication and monitoring.
    Don't be scared. Technology is GOOD!
