These are some of the best-of-the-best (i.e., my faves!) from my maternity photo shoot. Isn’t my friend Staci amazingly talented?!
Also, thought I’d follow up with an update from today’s ultrasound.
It was, in a word, amazing. We saw her sucking on her fingers, scrunching up her hands and toes, she gave us the thumbs up, and she stuck her tongue out at us a few times! She’s still measuring on the “small side of normal” but she otherwise looks great. There’s a +/- 14 oz range (so the measurements could still be pretty far off in either direction), but she was measuring 5 lbs 7 oz which is WAY better than the 3 lbs 2 oz we saw a month ago! She looked SO cute, chubby cheeks and face and like a little cherub!
Still, with the cord around her neck and her smaller stature, the recommendation from the perinatologist (the high-risk doctor I’ve been seeing since the early testing in the beginning) was still a C-section, but not past my due date, sometime in the 39th week — so sometime Dec. 13-19. I see my OB tomorrow and I’m guessing we’ll discuss this stuff then.
Also, I’m up a total now of 23.6 lbs. This means I gained 2.6 lbs in 13 days — which is awesome (I should be gaining about a pound a week) I’m definitely on track now to gain at least (if not more than) 25 lbs and since Maya is growing, I feel awesome about it!
