22 weeks appt with the peri/mfm

Postby princess purr » Wed Aug 14, 2013 06:18 pm

Baby is doing good. Measuring around 23 weeks (a little big). Blood flow is still looking good. They said he is around 1 pound 4 oz which is how big Veronica was when she was born. So hoping and praying that he keeps growing good and him and I stay healthy! They surprised with an internal u/s to check my cervix which was good (4.8 and they said anything over 2.5 is good). The u/s lady said she couldn't get his whole nose LOL but here are some pictures.

Oh, he is adorable! I am so happy for you that things are going great so far. That is good news that he is measuring a little big. I was told around that time that it was a good sign the measuring bigger and right on track. So take that as some hope for you to hold onto.

I hope it is a good sign, he feels bigger then Veronica because I don't remember ever feeling uncomfortable with her and he is already invading my lunch and stomach space, but I'm enjoying the discomfort know it means he is bigger. I just want him to GROW GROW GROW!!!! and for my body to behave itself! I think/hope my blood flow looking excellent is a good sign, I go back again on 9/11 (25/26 weeks) and hoping and praying it is still all good news!
