Well, we had our growth scan today. Baby is looking mostly good. His head measured 40 weeks...lol...good lord!!! His stomach measured right on schedule at 35 weeks and 3 days. However, his legs measured about 32 weeks, and he was under the 15th percentile for that measurement. Combined, he was just above the 40th percentile, and weighs approximately 6 pounds. He was FINALLY more head down today but we are going to recheck in 1 1/2 to 2 weeks. The doctor had some concerns about the growth so he said he's not suggesting going to due date or after. He is going to consult with Dr. Gordan today and discuss with him when we should take the little man. However, the good news is, I'll be term...or mostly term. We'll do another scan in about 2 weeks and decide at that point if it will be in our interest to take him out due to growth. However, at this point, he thinks he can do a little more growing in the next two weeks. So, good news, but bad news...unless my water breaks before then...which I doubt...lord knows I'm not that lucky. I have officially gained 12 pounds...which isn't so bad either..but still enough to need to loose after. The doctor did however say that he will for sure be bigger than my son...which we figured...and he's also swallowing and his one kidney is working well. He also suggested a fetal ultrasound after the baby is born to be sure the kidneys are functioning how they are suppose to be due to the SUA cord. BUT, he thinks everything will be fine and he will be overall healthy!!! Wow, what a relief...a healthy baby...really? I guess we'll see what happens after birth and how his breathing is. There is always a small percent his breathing could need some assistance, just like the other two babies. BUT, I'm hoping that this won't happen this time around. I have another ob appointment on Tuesday with Dr. Gordan and we will discuss what Dr. Larson discussed with me. I think either way, he'll be farther along gestation than both my other babies...which in itself...is great! On a side note, my urine was completely clean and normal..which is RARE for me...if you know me at all! He said my kidneys could start hurting but at this point, we are finally making progress and my kidneys should not cause any problems!!! I'm also super excited for my party, we've had a lot of people say they are coming, and it will be nice to see all my family and visit with everyone! Hand sanitizer here we come!!!
On a more positive note, I'm officially a graduate of MSU. I am just waiting on my license and my degree. Took long enough right? I'm super excited to finally be done...and have a great job!
Super excited to meet my little boy and see who he looks like! Name to be announced at birth...hehe!!!
