Scarlett Update

Yesterday we had our monthly growth ultrasound. Despite having to wait 1.5 hours to be seen everything looks GREAT with Scarlett!! She is now head down (vertex) and had both hands and one foot up by her face. Its amazing the positions these babies can get into. She is measuring an estimated 2lbs 12oz (which is bigger than I had guessed). At 27.4 weeks her cerebellum (brain) was measuring 30 weeks, her head measuring at 29 weeks, her abdomen at 29 weeks and her legs at 27-28 weeks. Her heart is looked at carefully each time and everything still looks perfect (4 chambers, left ventricular outflow, and right ventricular outflow). Both kidneys are functioning and my amniotic fluid index (AFI) is great! I go back in 1 month for another growth check. I'd post a picture but they didn't turn out very good since she had her face buried into a "corner".

As we monitor her growth on a monthly basis, I told Cody "watch, this will end up being our biggest baby yet"! Cody strongly believes little miss Scarlett will arrive before Christmas day. If that's the case...I need to start tracking down a matching stocking ;)

Stay tuned, her furniture gets delivered next week!!!!!
