Scott and I went for our weekly doctor's appointment today. My blood pressure was great, baby's heart rate sounded good, and my belly keeps growing. When Dr. Pearman walked in the exam room this morning, she said, "Well, you finally look pregnant!" Ha! I think I'll take that as a compliment. :) My stomach measurement today was 37 weeks, which is right where it should be. I was lucky enough to measure small for a quite a while, but it looks like my belly has caught up in the past week. Honestly, I was a bit relieved to know my belly is measuring normally now. Even though the doctor had very little concern about my previously small measurements, it was always nagging in the back of my mind that she might not be growing enough. I worry too much sometimes. I really had been praying through the situation, and in the past week I had been less worried about her growth. So today was an answer to prayers!
We have an ultrasound scheduled for next week, so we'll get to see baby girl again! I'm excited! The doctor will also be checking to ensure there's still a good amount of amniotic fluid and my placenta is still healthy. (Guess those things start to break down once you get close to your due date.) So we should know more about when baby girl might arrive next week.
