Growth Scan Appt

Had my first growth scan appt today (monthly, now) and was able to see Wesley! He is measuring 4 days ahead at 1lb, 12oz! HB was 151bpm. All is well and he is growing as he should be. He was in breech position but that is okay for now. We were able to catch him stretching his feet over his head, wiggling his toes, and playing with them with his fingers! It was too precious so I wanted to share the SHORT video:

Next week is my glucose test! Yum...

Yay! I'm so glad that Wesley is going well in there-- what a relief!

And that was a short video.....super short!

Yes, super-short. Don't know why the technician didn't save a longer version (in comparison to the one we viewed) but just blessed we received a snapshot of it!

Cool! I think that video is too short for me to actually understand it... but sounds like you got a good fun look. Smile

Why do you have monthly ultrasounds? Are they worried about something, or is that just standard (why?)?

My first baby was 2 1/2 weeks early due to pre-eclampsia and she was 5lbs, 4oz. My second was one week early (VBAC) and was only 4lbs, 12oz. During the third trimester, with each of mine, growth begins to slow down. Don't know why (they initially thought it was the placenta and not enough nutrients to baby). They just want to keep an eye on me with this last one.

Gotcha! That makes sense! Here's hoping this little peanut just keeps growing for you!

Thanks! I have a good feeling about this one! My goal is a 6lb, 5oz healthy baby!!!
