So I had an appt with my MFM today to have an ultrasound to check on baby and placenta. Baby is doing great and measuring at 28 weeks (5 days ahead) and 2.7 lbs. Her heart looked great and my placenta moved up a lot, so no need for a c-section unless baby is breech. Baby isn't breech but transverse...maybe that is why I am so uncomfortable lately. He checked my cervix to make sure there was no shortening and my cervix measured 3.5cm so that was great. All in all, everything looked wonderful.

We got a few shots of Jane. The 2D ones were super cute. The 3D ones were not, lol. In one of them she looks like a zombie blob and the other one shows her face - we're taking to calling her bird girl after that photo, lol.

I brought a flash drive for them to upload all my ultrasound photos onto form the past three appts and they did, but it is not working, so I have to go back and have them redo it on a different drive.

Anyways, that is my update.

YAY Mindy and Jane! Glad she's doing alright and your placenta is where it needs to be

PS - As much as I love ultrasound photos, some of them freak me out with the way they depict baby :-\ I'm sure she's absolutely gorgeous and not bird like at all

I also find the u/s pics to be funny looking at this point. To avoid a breech baby and a c/s, you should totally do some spinningbabies.com stuff as you near the 34w mark or so. It worked wonderfully for me in my last pg!

I'm thinking part of the reason they gave me the free (24 weeks) 4D pic I have in my sig is because I kept asking if his face looked normal. I told the tech that in the u/s photo from 18 weeks he looked scary and my kids were calling him monster baby!

so glad everything is going great!!! Happy the placenta moved too so you're not facing auto C-section!

Since I know you're on blood thinners too...has MFM told you to def. move to Heparin at 36 weeks? I ask b/c my OB is thinking of keeping me on Lovenox longer - despite induction occurring def between 38-39 weeks - and my MFM wasn't thrilled to hear that at my apt today lol, so was curious what yours is recommending.
