I had a routine appointment with my obstetrician yesterday morning. Dan was brave enough to venture to the office with Aveline in tow. She is a full time job.
The ultrasound looked great! The Deuce is now in a more favorable head down or vertex position, as opposed to the breech position she held two weeks ago. Yeah! No guaranteed c-section for me! Woo HOO! (Thank you Christina for the stern talk with her!) The technician was practicing her 4-D technique and tried out the new technology on us. This was a treat since we can't really afford to go to one of those private ultrasound places for fetal portraits. We watched our daughter yawn, stretch and make a fist, all as clear as if she was in front of us. One thing that (unnecessarily) worries me is the apparent size of her nose. It looks like a doozy from all of the pictures we have seen. I guess we won't know for sure until she makes her appearance.
After a good half hour of oogling the baby, we went to see the doctor. My blood pressure was great and I only gained 2 pounds. My doctor was very happy and impressed. I'm measuring normally and everything else is fine. Finally, an uneventful pregnancy....just what I had hoped for! We do still start our weekly visits now, even though things look good. I guess all I have to do is just sit back and gestate.
