update from todays apt.
We had a great trip to the Maternal Fetal specialist today. After about at 40 minute ultrasound and over 100 pictures/ measurements later. We met with the doc. She said that the baby was looking really good. My fluid levels are in normal range. Baby is measuring a little big but nothing to worry about. Im worried that his head is measuing at 38 weeks and the rest of him is at 34 weeks but oh well. He is weighing in at about 5 lbs 12 oz and is practicing his breathing. His head is down, his stomach is all the way on my hip and his butt is under my ribs. They did find out that his kidneys are enlarged. They are measuring an inch bigger then what they should be. Most kidneys have one exit into the bladder and his have two. Which means that his bladder fills up twice as fast. There is nothing that they do about this. She just reccomended getting an ultra sound done on him 1 or 2 months after he is born to check them out. So now we can relax and not have to worry about every movement. They said that the fundal height measurement that they do in the Dr. Office is only correct about 30% of the time, it just depends on how the baby is being carried and its position. So hopefully my 47 week measurement does not keep increasing.
