Ultrasound Update

I had my weekly ultrasound today and I got some good news. I lengthened back to 8 millimeters! Yippee! I was hoping to be a little longer, but I am thankful that I didn't go in the other direction. Baby "Hershey" looks great. The sonographer did a ton of measurements and she continues to be right where she needs to be developmentally. She has gained 3 oz. so she now weighs 1 lb. 4 oz.

She is a mover and a groover just like her big sister!

My doctor didn't make it in today as he was delayed a day on a weekend trip so I have't resolved my steroid issue, yet. I should see him in the morning so I should know more then. I am feeling a ton better about it as I am part of a bedrest/high risk pregnancy site (www.sidelines.org), and I have received a ton of information and personal stories from women in my same or similiar position. Thank you sidelines ladies!

Yea 3 oz! How exciting!!

And how often do we girls get to jump up and down about weight gain?!! Well, maybe no jumping for Ashley, so I'll jump up and down for you (bounce, bounce, bounce, bounce ... I'm sure baby Hershey and Holland can jump around for you too ... bounce, bounce, bounce).

Ashley, I think of you, Holland and Jonathan often throughout the day - what a great family. I'm so excited for week 40 and baby Hershey's arrival ... what a beautiful family you'll be!

(and of course, I can't wait to babysit:-)
