Ups & Downs

Today i had a drs appointment & they checked Lewis's wieight today & according to their system that calculates the babies weight he is weighing in at 5 pounds 8 ounces. which is wierd because 2 weeks ago when they checked his weight it came out to 5 pounds 11 ounces so they were pretty concerned about that. He is in the 6th percentile for his weight & anything under 10 they worry. Everything else however is looking fine its just his weight. Basically Dr Ponkey gave me a few options and we decided to continue testing for one more week to make sure his lungs get fully developed & i will be induced sometime the week of the 23rd. So it looks like we will be having a february baby!! i cant believe thats only a week & 1/2 away. i feel sooo not ready & its hard to get excited when i know my baby is going to have to have open heart surgery ASAP... but im excited to finally have him here & hopefully i will get to hold him after i have him, even if its only for a few seconds. please keep us (especially Lewis) in your prayers. Ill be sure to update how my appointments go monday & thursday of next week & when exactally i will be getting induced.
