Baby Update

We had another ultrasound this morning after my Monday morning appointment revealed that I am measuring 34 cm while only being 31 weeks. My doctor isn't worried, but she does like to have a reason to schedule an ultrasound if she can. So off we went this morning.

Everything looks good, and baby was actually head down and I'm almost positive that was not the case earlier that morning. I felt like I was a punching bag on the drive to the Dr. Based on the measurements, baby is about 3 lbs. and 14 oz. which places it right in the middle of the spectrum. I have a lot of fluid in there though, about double the amount that they want to see, although it's not a bad thing to have more. At least, I don't think so! I'm not sure if there is anything they can do to take away from the amount of fluid. Or why they would need to do that.

The tech also made us look away as she found out the sex and I am almost positive that she slipped up and said "she" right after looking. She then told us she was going to check the legs and then the sex, but I think it was a cover-up. Chris refuses to play along with me, and I maintain that he knows we are having a girl. Especially since he keeps saying that he got his boy...

Plus, how cruel would it be to have a boy and not Elise the Police, as Jacob will not be able to wrap his mind around that one come June. Baby boy really wants his baby sister!

Happy to hear things are right on track for this little wee one! I was measuring ahead by a few weeks too had an ultrasound at 32 weeks and was told baby was a good 5+ pounds and I had a little freak out (ahh! so big! ahh!). She kept on growing because 6 weeks later she was 9 pounds at her birth. Enjoy your growing bump!

I'm so sorry your tech apparently spilled the beans! That happened to me during my first pregnancy. Except that it turned out to be WRONG.

Hi Jessica! It was so nice to meet you this weekend. And wouldn't you know, I've seen your blog before! It's been a while but I remember thinking your dog was adorable. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!
