Weigh-In 6.20.08

We had mixed news today at the growth scan. Brady is measuring more than a week ahead, and Jaxon is measuring 2 weeks behind. There is a 37% weight difference between them. The doctor said that all we can do is wait and see at this point. Obviously Jaxon gets less blood in his cord, but since he isn't failing any of his tests and still doing fine, we need to just keep growing him as long as we can. So we'll either remain the same and make our 32 week goal, or Jaxon will start to not thrive anymore and we'll go earlier.

Jaxon - 1 lb, 12 oz - this weight estimate is based on all the measurments of his body without measuring his head. He is SO low in my uterus that they can't get a good measurment. The doctor said it MAY add a little weight to his measurment, but nothing substantial.

Brady - 2 lbs, 13 oz
