it’s grow time!

29 Nov

this morning brought a growth u/s, a biophysical profile and an appt with the ob at 34w5d. luckily this week the person doing the u/s was one of the wonderful nurse practitioners and not the morose silent tech from last week. we looked at each of the wigglers and measurements were taken. it would appear that mr. magoo has taken the last 18 days quite seriously. he is now measuring in the 70th percentile at 5lbs, 14oz. that is nearly two pounds more than his last measurements. all else looked good for magoo who remains perched head down for arrival. cindy lou who has also done some growing but i think her brother is beating her to the food supply since she is in the 38th percentile at 4lbs, 14oz. not too shabby. she also looked fantastic. i was fortunate enough to get to see both of their cute little faces today as well. and the nice nurse practitioner made sure to give me a few nice pics as well. non-stress test was uneventful. cindy lou kept kicking the monitor off per usual – she may be small but she is definitely feistier. quite a few contractions picked up on the monitors (which i knew but it is always interesting to see how they look on the monitor as well). doc checked things out around the escape hatch area and it appears i am starting to efface and magoo is at -1 station but i am not dilating much more than before. doc thinks there is at least another week to go but warned that of course that could change but he does not anticipate me making it to another growth u/s in two weeks. original plan has always been to make it to december. and we are nearly there. until then let the growing continue.
