"God gives the Growth"

The ultrasound results looked good today. Our daughter is now at 500.24g (I was praying for "at least 500g"), which is 1lb 2oz! Her arms, legs, and torso are measuring at the size of a 22-week baby (6 weeks behind) and her head is measuring at the size of a 25-week baby (3 weeks behind). As for blood flow, it looked roughly the same as last time which is good. The blood flow is absent at points, but has not reversed.

Here's a profile picture that they took during the ultrasound today. Her head is facing upwards, with her nose and mouth just about dead center in the image. You can see something that looks like her knees or hands just above her chest. At one point during the ultrasound it looked like she was sucking her thumb.

1 Corinthians 3:7 - "So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow."
