Yesterday we had an ultrasound to see just how big Elliana is! They estimate her current weight to be about 7.5 lbs! I thought that sounded big, but was quickly reassured it is perfectly normal. Yay! Because I do have a little bit of extra fluid, not a lot, they are going to do another kind of test next week - a biophysical profile. It'll measure for her movements, muscle tone, breathing, etc. I'm so glad she is ok, and I love getting to see her! She is a little squished though, with only 2.5 weeks to go!
My doctor goes out of town 11/1 so she can't be late! I think she's really comfy in there. I see a lot of walking in my very near future!
I am now considered full term at 37 weeks! Elliana is allowed to come out at any time!
At my last appointment, the doctor said she's going to be a big baby! Shocked, I asked why she thought so. Even though I have been measuring right on track all along so far, now I was suddenly measuring 3 weeks ahead! Yikes! So I get to have an ultrasound on Tuesday to see just how big she is measuring. I hope everything is perfect with her size and the amount of fluid around her. I measured myself at home and was only measuring 1 week ahead instead of 3, so I'm trying not to get too worked up over it. Yet.
In other news, we got a fancy-shmancy new camera! It's a digital SLR. I have no clue what all the settings mean and why I would use them, but I'm going to take a class. I'm sure I'll have the perfect subject to practice techniques on!
