This will be brief but much more upbeat than my last couple of posts.
Today’s ultrasound brought some much needed relief. Azulito/a is measuring a full week ahead, looking like a teeny person (except in 3d when s/he appears rather alien), and had a heart rate of 176 this morning.
I know we are not out of the woods but for today I am both deeply grateful and viscerally relieved. I hope that measuring big is not a sign of something bad I don’t know about (since I’ve always measured behind even in our one ultimately successful pregnancy). I’ve asked Dr. B to avoid any more unnecessary surprises but I truly hope his answer is along the lines of “of course not” rather than “only if it when…”
Thank you all so very much for your warmth, friendship, support, love and company. You really do make a difference.
