This was our last evening with Dr. D, our last sonogram, and hopefully my last Thursday here. Dr. D came in, hooked up the sonogram machine, and said, "This baby is big, did I take a weight last week?" I said "Yesss, but you wouldn't hurt my feelings if you did another one today!" She said, "Okay, you talked me into it!" Yipee!! That was easy!!
My AFI was down to a 2 and I asked if I should worry. No said the expert, so I'm not going to worry about it all. She said some women go 3-4 weeks with little to no fluid. It was cruicial to have fluid as lungs were developing. I did...just a little though.
I've been feeling HUGE this week, so I was anxious for that weight estimate tonight. She measured the femur, measured the head, and Dr. DiStefano was stunned! "5lbs, 2 oz," she said, "I don't believe it!" A good surprise. There's room for discrepancy, it's not exact, but she felt more confident she got the head measurement she wanted this time than the last couple of weeks. I'm thrilled!
We saw movement, breathing, mouth opening and closing, and an enormous bladder! Dr. D also got a great face shot of our little sugar.
