Growth Scan Results!

(Sorry friends. We were cleaning the house all night.)

There's a real baby in my tiny little gut! For reals. She's estimated at around 4lbs 7oz (49th percentile for size), head and abdomen are measuring together (neither is bigger than the other), everything looked good.


Oh my gosh, I had no idea late u/s could be so exciting! It was like a real little kid in my belly doing goofy kid things, like bonking herself in the head. I couldn't even believe it.

Baby is head down, way head down, butt and feet are up in my ribs (which I can't feel), knees and elbows together on my right side (which I /do/ feel), spine along my left side. All baby is accounted for.

I'm thinking I might have a tilted uterus. I think I remember them mentioning it when I got my HSG and it would make sense. Where the u/s tech found the kid's butt was a good bit higher than the midwives have been measuring my uterus. I'll have to mention that.

Thanks for the support, IVP. xo. We really appreciate it.

wheee! She has reached my birthweight, fyi. So she'll be fine., I predict. (And if I'm any indicator, she won't be small for long, either.)
