Ultrasound Update

We had another ultrasound today to check on the baby. They explained he needed to try and pass several "tests" including breathing for 30 continuous seconds and several body movements that indicate energy and growth. It took quite a while but he passed all of them! We were really encouraged by this. They also measured 5cm of water around the baby, and even though this is low it should continue to be enough to help him be comfortable and maintain growth. I then spent several hours hooked up to the fetal monitor, which showed his heart rate and activity to be good.
They also moved me to a larger room tonight, so we have lots more room for Calee and Ames to come and play. It was a calm day and I pray we have many more of these to come!
