34 week appointment
Sat, 09-29-2012 - 9:09pm

Went for my 34 week appointment and follow-up u/s yesterday and all was great! Baby still has an area of echogenic bowel, but the midwife wasn't concerned since it hasn't gotten any worse and there is no dilation or extra fluid, which would indicate an obstruction. So she said that we won't worry about following up on it again, will just document that it was there and let the pediatrician know, in the event that she has any bowel issues after birth. She was measuring right on target, with an estimated weight of 5 lbs, 4 ounces, which they said was in the 50th percentile. And she is still head down and hopefully will stay that way! Blood pressure was still good, along with everything else, so it was a pretty uneventful appointment (the best kind!).

I go back in a week and a half, then we'll be down to weekly appointments after that. I can't believe it's getting so close for all of us! I can't wait to start seeing pictures in just a few weeks of all of our sweet little ones!

Good news!
It is hard to believe that the first November babies could start arriving anytime, October babies started mid September I think and I saw a post listing nearly a dozen of them that have been born to date an October hasn't even started yet!

Sounds like a great appointment! That's nice that you were able to have another u/s. Hopefully the bowel thing is nothing.
