I had my long awaited sonogram today, and it turns out that I don't have excess fluid afterall! So no polyhydramnios here! Woohoo! We'll check for it again if I end up growing more than I'm supposed to, but for now I'm good. I'm just so relieved that my doctor didn't see any need to take the baby early. He was actually discouraging me from it, and I was like, 'Yeah, no problem here, that's what I want, too.'
So at almost 30 weeks our little monkey was estimated to weigh 4lbs 10oz, and his length is 16.7in. That's about the size a 35 week baby should be. My belly is still measuring at 7 weeks ahead of schedule, but that's just because he's big. My amniotic fluid is measuring on the high end, but not too high. The fluid index is considered high when it's more than 20cm, and mine is 19cm right now. So that's not bad. I had 36cm with Levi, and that was pretty miserable considering I was measuring 9 weeks ahead with him.
Anyway, all that to say I'm pretty happy with where we're at with that, and I'm hoping I don't go into premature labor so that I can hold out until January to have this little guy. I can't wait to meet him! During our sonogram today he was moving around a ton and trying to put his toes in his mouth. He's going to be such a handful; I can tell. :)
