Today we had our last growth scan and things are looking good- they estimate Bennett to be a little over 5 lbs-5.8 is what I think she said, which is pretty average at a little over 36 weeks so we're happy with that. I'm hoping Bennett is a big baby because I feel the bigger he is at birth the better it may be for his heart defect and for his upcoming surgery, hopefully this summer. Unfortunately, we didn't get any pictures of him :( because the tech said he is all squished up in there and would not show his little face. Oh well, I was hoping to post some but we'll just have to wait now-(just 17 days, but who's counting??) to see his cute face.
They also said that my placenta was at a grade 3 which I guess means it's basically ready and nearing the end. This concerned us a little, thinking we may have to deliver earlier but the doctor said as long as he is growing and he is getting the nourishment and oxygen he needs (which he is) then the placenta is doing it's job and that it is totally normal for the placenta to start dwindling (for lack of better words) down at this stage in the pregnancy.
So today the girls and I will spend the rest of the day inside, again, due to the rain-yuck! We had pancakes for lunch, I know, awful, but I'm so tired right now and the girls loved it, so everyone is happy. I'm getting my hair done tonight-(very excited about that!) and then Thursday is another non-stress test (bringing Harper so hopefully she will behave!) and I will meet the doctor that is doing my c-section. Other than that we're just waiting for May 22nd to get here!!
