the results are in

i had my doctor's appointment on thursday.
the one i've been waiting for.
she measured me
and again, i was 4 weeks behind.
two weeks ago i was measuring 30 cm.
now i'm measuring 32 cm.
growth is good, so i'm really relieved that we are still growing over here.
however, since i'm more than three weeks behind,
its cause for a little concern.
she sent me to have an ultrasound done
and everything came back great.
my amniotic fluid is on the high end,
which was my #1 worry, so that made me happy.
basically, brette is just small.
her arms and legs are measuring somewhere between 34 and 35 weeks.
her little body is only measuring 33 weeks
and guess what...
ronnie was right.  she got the turner noggin.
her head is measuring at 38 weeks.
cheese and rice,
she might be a freaking bobble head.
but what makes me really happy is the ultrasound tech said
that she had gobs of hair.  she said she could see it
coming out from all sides of her head. 
i might just pack hair barrettes to take to the hospital.
that's going to be so cute.
right now she's weighing in at a whopping 5.5 lbs.
the tech told me that she will just be a smaller baby,
probably only weighing somewhere between 6.5 and 7.5 lbs.
no 10 pounders over here.
(which, hello, that's great news to me!)
the doctor came back and had the tech do a bio physical.
that's where they measure her breathing, blood supply, tone and movement.
she did great in all four categories.
i am going back on wednesday for another ultrasound
because she is so little, they want to keep an eye on her.
but right now,
things seem to be fine.
i'll keep you posted.

  1. Aw a wittle and hairy one just like drewbie! When she was born at 36 weeks she was 5.2 ...which is right along with miss brette! Precious peanut. Now if only that head measured behind...too bad that's the first part to come out :/
