|The baby is the size of an apple, busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, |
which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop.
Although his/her eyes lids are still fused shut, they can sense light.
We FINALLY got to see our doctor! Yay! It was quite a process of missing appointments and insurances jargon and . . . Well, you get the point! But we saw her and decided on a plan of action!
We are going to start the 17P injection (progesterone) at 16 weeks this time around. This is to see if we can prevent preterm labor all together, since I still went into active labor at 31 weeks with Capri. The doctor will also be checking my cervix through an ultrasound every 2 weeks to keep an eye out for early dilation! That's where we are at this week!
Updates to come weekly with how my body is reacting to the injection starting next week!
