I went to the perinat today. They told me everything I wanted to hear. My cervix is still long! That means no more transvaginal ultrasounds! And the perinat is cutting back how often they see me. I'll go back in 3 weeks!! I get a week off! I go to the OB next week, then nothing the week after that! But, I'll end up going to the OB and perinat on Sept. 5.
Today the doctor said something about "towards the end of the pregnancy." That's me! I'm towards the end of the pregnancy. Can you believe that? Me, the preemie maker, might get to have a healthy, term baby!
They measured monster today. He is in the 42% for his gestational age. He is 3 pounds, 7 ounces. He has a little head just like his mommy and daddy.
I labeled the picture to make it easier to figure out. Basically he is looking at you with his hand by his mouth.
(Cary still hasn't plugged in the camera to his computer, so I can't show you the pictures of monster's GIANT home yet.)
He is still breech. His head is now in my ribs. It is as comfortable as it sounds. The perinat told me today that normally at this point there is about a 95% chance the baby will flip. But, he has no idea what monster's chances are of flipping. I'm so freakish that I'm not even in any statistic.
Monster's going have a freak mom with a little head and a dork dad who won't plug the camera into the computer.
