I had my 20 week ultrasound today. I was thankful that the baby looks healthy and is measuring consistent with her “due-ish date.” Yeah . . . her. This is my fourth and final baby. This is also my fourth and final baby GIRL. My poor husband.
Many concerns were ruled out today. At my “advanced” age, and after several losses, and after three perfect children, I was sort of anticipating something “different.” Different, how, I wasn’t sure. But I wasn’t feeling like it was going to be different good. The previous indication of an anterior placenta was wrong – my placenta is high and posterior. I’m thrilled. All of the measurements were good. Nice looking spine. Nice looking skull. Nice looking upper lip. Nice looking kidneys and stomach.
So, as far as I’m concerned, I’m done with obstetric care unless something develops that necessitates that type of care. I can’t wait to talk to my midwife!
