Re: Lil Shamrocks - February chat (1 more month!)
NappyChappy: glad you are feeling better!
We had our growth scan yesterday just to make sure baby is an acceptable size. We discovered that she has a two vessel cord at our 20 week ultrasound so this was to make sure that the artery grew enough to support a full term baby. I was pretty nervous because if she was not big enough we would have to induce to save her life and I am planning a homebirth with a great fear of hospitals.
Turns out all the worrying was for nothing as that often happens! She is 4.5lbs already (a good size for my family history, I was 5.5 at birth and that is average for our family) she measures in the 38th percentile which is great and again totally normal for my family of small babies. Her head is measuring a week ahead so I have been right all along about my due date (I ovulate really early, day 9 or 10) so we are all set for about March 17-21st.
We also know now that she is head down and engaged in my pelvis facing back (thank God!) and I am not dilated yet. So about 5ish weeks left for me!
