update on my friend who is due in april and sick--
she has very little amniotic fluid and the baby is growing very slowly. her last ultrasound showed some of the baby's organs and a heartrate of 170...but the baby isn't moving. at all. mainly because there isn't room to/no fluid. they've taken her off weekly ultrasounds and put her on monthly ones...her next one is dec 17th. at that point, the genetic counselor will talk to her as well.
i'm so scared for her. she's so afraid that either the baby will not make it OR it will have horrible medical issues. keep her in your thoughts, because she can't escape mine.
