Baby A ( the bigger one): Audrey Clark Anderson. Audrey was my grandmother's name, meaning strength. Clark is Ryan and his father's middle name.
Baby B: Evangeline Sommer Anderson. Evangeline means good news or gospel. Sommer is my maiden name.
Yesterday I was hopeful, today I'm scared, and that's just kind of how it's been. We took weights at my appointment this morning and Audrey is 1lb 13oz, Evangeline is 1lb 1oz (Im 26 weeks). She is still growing, but so slowly. When her growth comes to a halt, which it likely will, we will have deliver. She just does not have the placental mass and access that her sister does. My concerns are that she will stop growing in the next few weeks, that she will not survive, or that she/ they will have physical or neurological disabilities. Of course, none of that could happen too.
I just really wanted a miraculous story, where things went beautifully and smoothly, and I thought I might get it- but that just might not be what the Lord has for us. At this point, I don't expect to get to the mid 30s, I think more like 30 maybe 32 weeks... Im sad.
Would you please pray for Evangeline to have a growth spurt and to continue to grow as long as possible? Thank you, thank you!!!
