I had an ultrasound yesterday and the cord and placenta all look good, which is great news of course. i havent had a problem with the other two kiddos but its always nice to be sure.
the baby showed us that he is for sure a boy tho,, no real mistaking THAT view haha. daddy was proud (rolling my eyes lol). so now i guess i can walk around saying 'boy' and not follow it up with 'maybe' lol. i wasnt convinced at the last u/s in dec, but i am this time.
he is measuring a week behind schedule but he was moving so much, it was hard to tell. mostly its because of his leg length but his dad has short legs (despite being 6 feet tall lol), so the tech wasnt concerned. everything else looks right on par, head tummy, etc. we could see a little fuzzy hair around the skull too so that was cute :)
i have an appt this morning with the maternity clinic tho so i will update again later to see how the BP and such is doing. i have felt like such total crud lately and definately swelling more, including my face :( so all that will be mentioned to the OB. when i woke up this morning, after sleeping all night on my side, my face actually FELT heavy like i could feel the fluid there. its not pitting,,, not sure if the face really pits or not, but i wasnt impressed with how it felt around my eyes and nose. otherwise the swelling is in my legs and hands (one finger will swell, one leg will become monstrous, etc).
**just updating with a scan link :) **
