Hello everyone, sorry it's been almost 2 weeks since we updated. Karissa had her 3 month check up on Thursday and it didn't go well. She weighed in at 7lbs 4oz so she only gained 13 ounces in a month. Her dr. said she fell farther away from the 5th percentile which is where she wants her to get to at least. Doc said she needed to take urine to check for a UTI which she said is the biggest reason for babies not gaining weight consistently. That meant that they had to put a catheter in her and that was the worst thing we have had to see her go through yet. It took them a few minutes to get it in her since she's so tiny. They finally did though and got some urine. We haven't heard the results. Doc said after she gets the results of that we will figure out where to go from there. Please pray for all 3 of us. We are very worried parents but are really trying to trust the Lord to take care of her. We are very frustrated because she has grown so much and is really looking very healthy. They also checked her length and head circumference and those were both closer to where doc wants them. She is now 20 3/4 inches long. Her 0-3 month clothes are too big but her newborn clothes don't fit over her head very easily. LOL. Poor thing has her daddy's big head. Well, there isn't much else to say. Til next time, God bless you all.

We're praying for you guys! We're anxious to hear what the doctor says about the urine test results.
