So I had my growth scan/ heart re-check today, and a regular check up.

The ultrasound was pretty good. Liam looks great, and he's still measuring a little ahead. He weighed in at 4lbs 1oz he was head down, way down lol. But he's stubborn about his heart, he just won't let them get the pictures they want. Eventually after 2 techs and many different positions they had seen everything and said it looked okay, and they thought they had enough pictures to piece together that the doctor would be satisfied.

At my appointment everything was good his HR is still in the 140s. My fundal height is still 31 though, which it has been for like a month. She wasn't worried and said maybe they just measured it too big the first time, but I hope it changes by next time or I might start worrying, he's growing, but i wonder if it's possible for him to keep growing and my uterus to stop? And what that would mean? We also went over my birth plan and she thought it looked pretty good and put a copy in my file.

When I got home I put on shorts to walk to dog because it was 70 out, and I saw flowers and robins both for the first time today so it was a good day all around. Now I feel ready for a nap, maybe I can squeeze one in before I have to start dinner.

Sounds great!

Don't worry about your fundal height. He's growing and so is your uterus. I mean even the position the baby is in at the time of measurement can make the results vary. It's all good if he's good!

Spring weather is making me happier these days too!

So glad that Liam is looking good. I wouldn't worry about your fundal height. If baby is growing, I think your doing great. The weather has been so nice lately, Enjoy.

yeah I just did some reading and basically because Im so short I might not gain a lot more height, but my uterus might grow wider so its still growing. Im actually going to be more worried that he will get too big lol his head measurment was a week or 2 ahead I don't remember exactly but I'm just a little girl! And I got stuck because of a big head resulting in my mom having an emergency c-section so I really don't want that to happen lol.

You'd be surprised how big of a head can come out. Just needs to be engaged and ready and it can happen! Living proof here!!

Sounds like a good appointment! I agree about not worrying about fundal height as long as he's growing, and it sounds like he is
