>We had our last high-risk OB ultrasound yesterday and have been given the all clear by the doctor. Since we declined the amnio, he wanted to monitor the little guy a couple of times to make sure all was well. Yesterday he said we’re most definitely out of the woods in terms of Downs and any other major problem. Baby is measuring right on target and all of his parts are accounted for and working properly. We haven’t been worried for a while now, but it was nice to get the all-clear.
Little dude was so cute – he kept covering his face with his hands. He now weighs approx. 1 lb. 3 oz. I’ve been feeling his feet getting under my rib cage lately, but I thought it couldn’t be that because I figured he wasn’t that large yet. Imagine my surprise when yesterday the u/s tech runs the device just under my rib cage and I see his feet! Ha! We got some pretty great 4D scans of his face. It’s really crazy how much you can see these days on u/s. I’ll post u/s pics once they are scanned (sorry, S!).
Other than that, all is well. I’m feeling pretty good, though I have been having some back pain lately. I’m trying to watch my posture and how I’m sitting to help with that, and we’ve been swimming the last few nights, too. My cousin, who had twin boys last October, gave us a baby swing, bouncy seat, and 2 bags FULL of 6-12 month clothes. We are also inheriting her car seats in Oct. when her guys upgrade. Nice!
