Baby Bump and 1/2
So, last night we had an ultrasound and found out that baby is a bit big for date. Tonight's appointment was a big relief. For one, my glucose screening test came back with sugars in the normal range, so I don't have to repeat that and don't need to worry about gestational diabetes either. The doctor reassured us that we'll wait to see what the next ultrasound tells us about baby's size because our ultrasound 4 weeks ago measured baby in the 50th percentile and last night's ultrasound measured baby in the 90th percentile and the doctor indicated that simply doesn't normally happen. Her inclination was to think that one of those measurements was off and the next ultrasound will give a better indication of baby's size. Also, one way or another baby's not that big. Her head measured for 30 weeks (right on target), but her belly measured 33 weeks. Overall, we'll keep an eye on the "situation."
