Well, I'm 41 wks since yesterday so I went to have an ultrasound today by a fetal specialist for peace of mind and to see how baby is doing.
Baby environment is great. She can't really estimate on gestation at this point in the game- I'm somewhere around 41 wks (going off earliest ultrasound and my lmp) give or take a few days. She said fluid levels are great (needs a min of 6 and mine is 16), baby size doesn't appear overly large/ her estimate now (which can be off by up to 8/10 of a pound) is 7.11.
Listened to blood flow through umbilical cord and it sounds clear w great flow. Head is down and facing the back/baby in good position w good movement. Did some NST on the baseline of her heart and said it sounds perfect.
Based on all of this, her recommendation at this point is to leave baby alone bc environment is good.
I have a follow up in 3 days which is standard to reevaluate fluid but she thinks I may not need the appt.
she said baby seems like a happy girl and is enjoying herself. Ha... funny observation huh?
I am relieved to say the least. It was reassuring to see baby and to get her assessed. It's been a long couple of weeks.
And on that note, I have felt loopy ever since we left her office and laid down at home. Had some contractions a bit ago and hope they pick up! Lost my plug a week ago and am ready to meet baby already.
Would be great to have her tomorrow after moon shifts into Libra.
