What to muse about today?

December 13, 2010

on December 13, 2010

So, today was the echocardiogram.  Although the level II came out well, and the u/s tech said we didn’t have anything to worry about, I was still a bit anxious.  You know, because there’s been bumps and unhappy surprises all along this time. Anyway, this time, things were good. :)  The heart looked great, as did the other “stuff” they looked at – kidneys, stomach, cord.  Placenta is still covering the cervix, so the previa hasn’t resolved in the month since the level II.   Still a partial previa.  But they aren’t concerned.  Yet.  There’s still a lot of time for it to resolve.

What is a bit concerning is that this little one is running at a 93% percentile.  OMG.  Crazy.  The tech did say that this baby could be “front loading” it’s growth, that it will slow and taper off as the pregnancy progresses.  Before she was born, Teagan seemed to run a bit on the higher side (70th% or so, and they thought she’d be a 8 lb baby), but she ended up being a peanut, born at 6 lbs 11 oz only one week early.  A peanut would be a good thing :)

This percentile just means that there’ll be another scan in a month.  Probably also to monitor the placenta previa too.

Oh, and in other news, she’s still a she.  LOL!

    Yes, a peanut is much easier than a watermelon. I know that from experience!! So glad that all is well with this little one.

      Yeah… I had been expecting another peanut as Teagan was such a tiny one… but now the idea of a watermelon is there… yikes!!! Also comes with the possibility of Gestational diabetes, which I’m not that psyched about either… Oh well… it is what it is, and we’ll deal with it as we need to. :)

    Thanks!! We’re looking forward to the craziness that our lives will become come April.

    We should get the “grand kids” together sometime – maybe this summer, we could do a big family picnick?
