Journal Update 3-22-09: Omphalocele vs. Body
Keep in mind this is a bit of an estimation based on the size of a normal baby at the time of our ultrasound on the 13th.
On that day the doctor said that the omphalocele was about 3.5 cm. The size of an average baby at that time is about 13 cm. This might not be the most accurate at this time, but it gives us a rough starting point to measuring the growth of the omphalocele compared to the growth of Karsie. Starting measurement is a little less than 1/3 of the size of the rest of her body.
