Presenting.......a squashed-up looking baby face! The sonographer gave us (Mom and me) a few seconds to view a 3D image--which I've never seen in person before. I have no idea what all that weird gelatinous looking stuff is behind its head, or why everything looks all smudged. But, I do know one thing--that kid has a large forehead.
The prognosis was good today. The blood flow velocity was in the normal range for the first time since the baby contracted the parvovirus. It is still on the high end of normal, but it was under the red line marking the division between normal and not. I was so excited to see it plot out under that damn line that I have been peering at longingly for 7 weeks. Everything else looked good as well. They said "It looks like the baby is recovering." It also appears I shouldn't need another transfusion. We still have to return for an undisclosed number of weeks--until they are really sure that the baby is actually fully recovered.
I'm finally letting myself believe this is real and this is happening. I think we are going to have a baby!
