It’s only 6 weeks now until full term. Today was the last day of week 30, and it included an ultrasound. What was different this time was that my wife’s mother was present during the ultrasound.
The baby’s doing great. She’s back to the correct head down position, which is very important for the birth. She’s now 1651 grams. The doctor said that she’s slightly above average in weight, so she seems more like she’s at the end of 31 weeks. Her head is slightly below average size due to me. While her head isn’t actually small, the Caucasian head is longer and narrower than an Asian person’s head. Her heart is strong and healthy and her spine is straight. We got some great views of her face during the ultrasound, but the picture wasn’t taken at that time. Her eyesight is developing, though not so great yet. As always, she’s very active, and making it very uncomfortable for her mother.
As for the mom, she’s feeling bad sometimes. She feels sick occasionally, and she often feels pain in the lower part of her abdomen. The doctor says this is normal, and should feel better if she takes a rest. Walking uphill is getting more and more difficult now.
So, here’s what you’ve been waiting for, the pictures!
The next visit to the clinic is in 2 weeks, but without ultrasound.
