I have only gained a pound in two weeks...I knew that wasn't the best news to hear before the doctor came in. Jayden has only gained 10 ounces in two weeks, which means his growth is slowing down. He now weighs 5 pounds 14 ounces. The doctor told us a long time ago that she would have to take him earlier if he stopped growing. Apparently, babies with heart defects have a problem with growing all their life, in the womb and out. We need him big and fat for his surgery. Our c-section is November 3, which is exactly 2 weeks from today!! Please pray that he grows more between now and then! I don't want them taking him early if we can help it!! So, I am doing my part and eating as much as possible, including at least one bowl of ice cream every day!!!
