Everything went great today at the doctor. Brayden weighs 6 lbs 4 oz and is measuring perfectly other than the normal news his legs are still 5 weeks behind. I had asked the doctor today if she thought brayden has enough fluid on his brain to make him have a mental disability and she said no, its not even likely that he will need a shunt. He is practicing his breathing and swallowing normally. He also has good brain activity moves his fingers quite a bit ect. The surgery schedule-er is suppose to call me tomorrow or monday to set up my c-section for 39 weeks so we are trying for friday feb 17th if we can get that day.. which is only 3 weeks away :) mommy is excited to meet her little guy. We didnt get any good pictures today because he was being a little squirmer.. but i seen him yawn and his eyes were open again. I think hes ready to meet his mommy and daddy !! hehe. Hoping for a little miracle everyday, still preparing ourselves for the worst. He seems to be doing pretty good though !!

Short update on brayden:
GOOD NEWS! he was 3 pounds 7 ounces last time i went to the doctor 2 weeks ago and they were sort of concerned that he was slowing down on growth... but today he is 4 pounds 15 ounces.. hes becoming a little chunker :) Im excited about that. He opened his eyes today on camera which the nurse said that doesnt happen to often so she hurried and got a picture .. its not that great of one but its still amazing he did that for mom and dad!! We love seeing him on camera but I dont see dr barsoom anymore which means no more good pictures :( so this will be the last one i upload. As far as it goes with his length in his arms and legs they are still measuring behind 5 weeks and they can only get measurements of his thigh's because of the way he is sitting.. not to mention RIGHT ON MY BLADDER ( so i always have to pee every 20 minutes it seems like ). A little more good news... his chest cavity wasnt a big concern today as much as it was last time i seen dr barsoom .. its small but not to abnormal :) I dont see dr barsoom anymore because brayden is stable now i only see the main OBGYN every 2 weeks until the end... 7 weeks left... hes almost here.. we have mixed emotions about the whole deal considering his condition but still have little amounts of hope that we get a miracle. Also we seen him practicing his breathing today, which is good. so we got a little bit of the normal crappy news that we hope ends up turning out better than it is sounding now and then we also got some good news today.
