Best Ultrasound Ever
I got a much-needed boost this afternoon: I had an ultrasound scheduled, to check on the positioning of a previously low-lying placenta. (As expected, it’s moved into position now and everything is green to go.) But while we were peeking around in there, the baby showed up clear as day playing with his toes! It was absolutely the cutest thing, seeing those little fingers grabbing and then releasing his own foot. I laughed so hard the sonographer had to ask me to hold still.
Sol is doing fine by the way, measuring at four and a half pounds (though ultrasound weight estimates are not terribly accurate, and in any case he’ll put on a couple more pounds before he’s born). I’m closing in on my due date—March 13 based on the first couple ultrasounds, though his growth seems to have slowed a bit recently, and the latest ones have suggested an adjusted due date of March 20. I’m starting to get excited. I think this weekend I’ll get the baby clothes out of storage and give everything a good washing.
