Growth Scan

Just got home from the ultrasound, and much to my relief, everything went very well (Thank You G-d!).

The highlights:

-Maya is in the head-down position.
-My cervix is still holding strong at 3.2cm (no change from 14 weeks).
-Maya is still a GIRL!
-Maya is measuring at 32w6d; I am 33w1d today. The sonographer was quick to add that when you're this far along in pregnancy, a discrepancy of 2 days means absolutely nothing as the measurements become less accurate the further along you get. This does not change my due date.
-So why is my fundal height so big? Well, as it turns out I am carrying a "generous" amount of amniotic fluid. In the 95th percentile, to be exact. I'm going to ask my doctor about this but the sonographer did not seem concerned. A quick Google search on the subject yields a mixed bag of information but in a nutshell, this news is not great, but not
too bad. Looks like I could be at risk for going into labour early but as my cervix is still unchanged, I'm not terribly worried about it yet. But I will definitely talk to my doctor at my appointment next week. (Also of note - apparently amniotic fluid "maxes out" at 32 or 33 weeks, so that may have something to do with it too.)
-Maya's weight was estimated to be 4 pounds, 14 ounces.
-Maya has HAIR!!! Sweet little wisps of it visible on ultrasound. She has EYELASHES too!
-Maya is practicing her BREATHING! Her diaphragm was moving up and down in preparation for breathing air. Clever girl!
-Maya was gripping the umbilical cord with her right hand. Don't squeeze too hard little one!
-Maya's face is just like D's and her feet are exactly like mine.
-Maya wasn't moving all that much, she was just kinda chillin' out. But she is pretty crammed in there so there's not a lot of room for her to go crazy.
-The sonographer said that everything looked "perfect". Music to my ears!

I can't post the pictures, unfortunately; They are just way too grainy to see anything really and besides I don't have access to a scanner now that I'm off work. You'll just have to take my word for it when I say that baby girl is super cute and I am so relieved that she healthy and just the right size.

Whew!!!

Yay for Maya! Catherine had her scan today too and everything went well! It was so cute to see her yawn and stretch and then drink a bit. And hilarious when she peed!

YAY! So glad to hear that all went well. I must say, I bummed that you can't post the pics (I'm curious to see a scan at this point as I haven't had one since 25 weeks), but I am so happy she is doing perfectly! :)
