Yay!

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.

Great news all around! 3 lbs 7 oz? That's HUGE if you ask me! I'm very happy things are going well for you. Now for those belly pics...

Oh, all of that is such wonderful news! You're right, you're in 'late pregnancy'! YAY!! Our wee-one is measuring small, too, but I'm all okay with that, since my family is known for monster babies and both my husband and I are short.

Can't wait to see the belly pics, and congratz on keepin' your cool so well this far in! Enjoy your week off from the perinat ;)

Wahoo! I've seen Monster's "huge" home and it's really not that big. You look like a normal preggo at 31 weeks. Glad to hear he's hanging on to your ribs!

I don't even have the words to tell you how excited I am for you and Cary! As for him having to deal with a freak mom and a dork dad, he just has a head start on his teen years when he'll think that of you both anyway! Does a freak mom and dork dad make him a frork? By the way,love the picture!
