The last time I posted, I was concerned about our baby girl dropping 50 percentiles in 2 months (from 82% to 52% to 32%). Well, now she's back up in the 50s again! So she's 3.5 times the size of my son at birth already...lol... unbelievable! I'm 30 weeks and we just had an incredibly positive appointment. She's even practicing breathing. Everything looks completely normal: fluid, blood flow, growth, BP, everything. She's a mover and a shaker, so it took a little while to get a good look at blood flow. My OB even asked me to hold my breath! But we got it and it looks perfect.
He also pulled me off of lovenox. I have MTHFR, but it's not the bad type, so he really only had me on lovenox because of my history. Since placentation is complete at 28+ weeks, and I've shown no signs of trouble so far, he no longer sees the benefit of it. He told me to continue the baby aspirin though.
So, we're scheduling a C section at 38w4d, and he kept reiterating that he expects me to get there. He said that it's likely we would have seen *something* by now if this wasn't to progress normally. Obviously we're keeping a close eye on things, but I'm glad he felt comfortable enough to offer that encouragement. He left the room telling me to go buy some normal size baby clothes. LOL!
