superbeans - thank you! We just got back - I'm at 27w5d, and she was measuring overall at 27w3d, so I feel MUCH better. Her legs were actually also about a week behind, which kinda makes me laugh - I'm 5'3 with SUPER short legs, so I'm pretty sure she's just going to be a shorty like me. :P I suspected she'd had a growth spurt, so I think that's what it was. I think your kiddo will probably just be a bit of a shorty too!
My midwives, too, are really reassuring about any growth or size variations, they keep reminding me that ultrasounds are super bad at determining size. To which I say... why do we use them, then? Jeez. :P
In absolutely odd yet entertaining news - when we were having the scan, the kid was bopping around, and at some point, she decided to grab her foot and lift it up all the way to the top of her head to play with her toes! By the end, she had her foot behind her head totally. The tech was laughing so hard and taking all kinds of screenshots. There's an explanation, we think - my husband is double-jointed and VERY flexible, so we're figuring it may just be genetic.
But I will laugh so hard if she comes out and becomes an ACTUAL gymnast like all of my previous jokes. :P
It's things like this that really help when pregnancy starts to feel so crappy. I wish all of you ladies better times, and I completely sympathize.
Not too long now!
