Perinatology appt update (xp)

So, I've been seeing Dr T, the peri, for the gestational diabetes, and had my follow up today.

The good news:

#1: The GD is in good control. Good enough, with diet alone, that he doesnt want to see me anymore (yay!)

#2: Cassandra is still a girl.

#3: She is head down (yay!)

#4: she is 6 lb 2 oz give or take a pound.

#5: Her growth is not the growth of an infant of a diabetic mother - abdomen, etc are not bigger than her head.

the kind of news:

- her head is 90+% for size. her abdomen and the rest of her is just below the 50th%.

Zoiks!

That's great news. Congrats fellow GD momma. I could only wish that my Dr would say I dont want to see you. I have an appt scheduled for the Friday b4 my due date. Lovely.

That sounds like great news!! My oldest had a big head too Lol Her head measured about 4 weeks ahead of the rest of her during each of my ultrasounds, it wasn't too bad Wink

Glad you got such good news! My DD's head was on the large side as well... 95th percentile when the rest of her was well below 50th! Lol! She eventually evened out ;-).
