BIG Baby!

We are 8 months this week!  The weeks are flying by!  

Our appointment this week went great.  Surro babe is head down (yay!) and looks perfect! His heart rate is 155 which is awesome. He is measuring 6.6 pounds already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  No wonder I feel so huge and squished! Check out his adorable chubby cheeks:  

I will be seeing my OB weekly now for the remainder of the pregnancy. Whenever a baby is on the bigger side, my OB does weekly ultrasounds and fetal non stress tests just making sure that the baby is thriving. Because of a marginal placenta we’ve been watching surro babe making sure he’s growing enough and now we’re watching him because he’s grown so much! Oh the irony! 

R and E are busy getting everything ready for their stay here (flights, short term rental, all the newborn gear, etc.).  So exciting!!!


10 Weeks!

We had another ultrasound this week and baby is doing great!!!!!!  Heart rate was 181!  

Ultrasound technology is incredible!!!  Check out this awesome picture we got of sweet surro babe:

I can’t stop staring at this picture!  So amazing! ❤️❤️❤️

Bloodwork showed my hormone levels look great too so I get to stop taking my oral estrace now!  Yay!  I have two more weeks of vaginal progesterone and then I’ll be completely med free!  Hooray!!!!  And….I’ve officially been released from the fertility clinic!  Next week I’ll be seeing my regular OB.  😄

My morning sickness is still hanging around, but hopefully it’s on its way out!
