Growth checkup

Iam posting this from my phone so please forgive any typos. We went for our appt with Dr. Stephenson, the maternal fetal specialist, to check on Katherine's growth yesterday. The growth looks good - she is 3 lbs 12 oz so far. However, the Dr. noticed a membrane going from the placenta to the umbilical cord that she did not know what it was. She double checked the blood flow to the cord and also to make sure the cord is moving freely, which all looked good. Theywent ahead and admitted us to the hospital to moniter the baby for 24 hours and also to administer steroids to help her lungs develop. So far all looks good on the moniter and I will hopefully be discharged this evening.Will post an update on this when I am able. Please pray that all continues to look good, that she continues to grow, and that the extra membrane does not affect her negatively. Above all else pray that God's will be done in this to glorify his name.
