A Celebration and Some Kidney News

My pregnancy countdown says I'm less than 80 days away from seeing my babies!!!! The even more fabulous news about that is that my ticker is set to my due date, not my induction date (a few weeks earlier). And no, we don't have a firm induction date set in stone yet; when it gets closer, we'll start to plan that. Of course, it will also depend on whether or not I have to have a c-section (pray that I do not!).

We received some news from my ultrasound last week (we had been waiting and waiting). Here is what my doctor said: "I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, but I wasn't in the office on Friday. Baby A [Aiden] still has only one multicystic kidney - the other one looks normal. [insert small cheer] The radiologist did, however, note a single "exophytic" cyst in Baby B's [Isabella] right kidney that was a new finding. I'm sorry. I'm not sure if it the first sign of a problem or not but I have sent a message to our perinatologists to review the ultrasound and get back to me. I will let you know as soon as I get an answer."

This isn't devastating news, obviously. One cyst really means nothing. I'm just upset that Isabella has anything. It just makes me want answers even more. So, here's to praying, once again, that the perinatologists say that everything is okay. We also have another level 2 ultrasound scheduled to look at the kidneys in June. That ultrasound will potentially give us more answers. Grrrrrrr.

I think that is great news on Aiden, and I think Isabella will be just fine, but it is totally ok to worry. I think even if there was never an issue, you worry a bit anyway until they are safe in your arms!! I am so excited to meet them!!
