25 days left. How exciting
Wednesday we had our last ultrasound and I had a check-up visit with the doctors office. Everything went well, and the doctors visit really made me feel like this is the beginning of the end. At the ultrasound we found out that BabyP’s left kidney is still filled with more fluid than it should be, so we’ll have to follow up on that with the pediatrician when he is born. We were told they might just wait and see, they might put him on antibiotics, or they might want to do an ultrasound on the baby, but the doctor didn’t really seem too concerned and genuinely believes it will resolve itself. Lets hope so!
They did some measurements and he’s still measuring pretty far ahead (for example, his head and abdomen both measured in the 39th week) and his weight right now is estimated to be 7lbs7oz, plus or minus 13 oz. Even if its minus 13 oz. he’s still big for this point in time, but I guess having a big baby was inevitable. As long as he’s big and healthy! (since thats really what matters)
After the ultrasound I went over to my doctors office for my first visit in 4 weeks. I was so curious to see what they had to say since it had been a month and we’re getting so close to the end. I had some tests done as well as an exam. I found out that his head is down low, he’s in right position, and he’s running out of room (I could’ve told them that!).
I’ve been doing baby laundry all week and we got one picture hung in the nursery. I still want to find a lamp, bins for inside the changing table, and a clock to hang up in there. We’ll be going shopping for a few more articles of clothing we’re short on this weekend. Its really all coming together and I won’t lie – I’m starting to get a little anxious about it!
I’ve got another check up next Wednesday and will be seen every week from here out. Luckily, at least for this coming week, my schedule is jam-packed so my mind will be elsewhere most of the time. BabyP can make his appearance any time after “Auntie Nic” ties the knot next week! Such an exciting time!
