ultrasound update: all systems go

Huge sighs of relief followed the ultrasound Monday morning.

The technician did her thing, thoughtfully avoiding Beth’s bellybutton due to Beth’s hypersensitive bellybutton trauma issues.

Then the doctor came in, flipped through our file, ran a quick ultrasound check up, and let us know the good news.

Dr. H (good luck spelling his last name) said that our son was growing steadily at the rate they want to see at this point in the pregnancy, that he was “very pleased with the results of the follow-up ultrasound”, and that he “saw absolutely no room for concern moving forward into the last month and a half of the pregnancy.”

No bed rest, no restrictions, just normal pregnancy care until our son decides he wants to show up and hang out with his sister.

At the moment, he is just under 4 pounds at 33 weeks, which makes him a bit smaller than average (32nd percentile), but the doctor “wouldn’t even call him a small baby.”

All that to say, we are indescribably thankful that the Lord chose to show his kindness to us through this whole anxiety-ridden process, giving much grace.

Oftentimes, that grace was most evident in the reminders that you were praying for us, the emails and Facebook messages that encouraged us, and just knowing we were not alone in all of this.  Thank you.

    Glad to hear! IUGR is so unfun. I pray you have zero bumps in the rest of this road, but if you ever want to talk about NICU/prematurity/IUGR or any other concerns you have, give me a ring or send me an email!
