Okay so I’ve definitely been slack about updating what’s going on around here, but I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that both Facebook and end up filling in those bits and pieces for me.Â It’s so much easier these days to send out a quick Tweet than it is to sit down to write a post.Â It hurts to sit at my desk very long, and well blogging from my cell phone just totally sucks.Â I’ve given up on repairing my old POS laptop, so hopefully I can pick up the I want soon.Â That would definitely help me out a lot.
Anywho, now that I’ve got food in my system and the phone call to Hubby taken care of let’s talk about what’s been going on over the last week or so.Â We’ll start with my.
As far as ultrasounds go everything went well.Â There really isn’t too much to stay other than the ultrasound confirmed what our doctor already thought.Â Elliana is just fine, but she’s going to definitely be a small baby.Â She’s dropped from the 55th percentile to the 26th percentile in weight and height.Â Of course those measurements are always a estimate, but we know she really doesn’t have the room to be a big baby.Â I was a very small baby, and with my petite build she doesn’t have much more room to grow.
She spent the entire 45 minutes of the ultrasound with her little face pressed up against my uterine wall, so we were only able to get shots of one side of her face, but I’m surprised at how much you can actually see on the 2D at this stage.Â Of course it has us spending even more time trying to guess who she’s going to look like and where she gets what features.
I’ve uploaded the ultrasound photos tofor anyone who wants to see them, but if you’re a Facebook friend of mine you can find them there as well.
This ultrasound dated my pregnancy at 32 weeks and 6 days based on her size which is little bit behind my ESD.Â Everything else measured ok, and the Anmed doctor yet again agreed with my doctor on a suspected birth weight between 5 1/2- 6 1/2 lbs.Â Who knows though.Â My BFF said that her son was predicted to be small like that, and he was 8lbs 2oz, so you never know.
Anywho Hubby really enjoyed this ultrasound because she was really putting on a show.Â He loves getting a chance to see her kick and play because he normally misses her “active times” during the day when it seems like a foot or elbow is going to burst through my tummy at any minute.Â We just happened to be getting the ultrasound during her most active hour of the day, so she was showing off big time.
Her little lungs were going like crazy, and the doctor said if she’s practicing her breathing this much now then her lungs are definitely mature enough if she were to arrive early.Â We jokingly said if she’s practicing that much she’s letting us know ahead of time she’s going to be a screamer lol.Â She also didn’t like the ultrasound wand, so every time the tech would push in a bit on my belly Elliana would kick it.Â I think Hubby was amazed at how interactive she was.
That’s about it as far as the ultrasound went.Â The Anmed doctor said she was going to ask my doc if she’d like to repeat the ultrasound again in about 3 weeks just to make sure she’s still gaining weight.Â 3 weeks would put me at 37 weeks full term, so if she runs out of room we could safely deliver instead of having to worry about preterm complications.Â Now let’s cross our fingers and hope she decides to stay in there for another 6 weeks or so no matter how much we’re ready for her to get here!
