The baby is doing good

We were able to get in this morning for our ultrasound.  The baby looks great they said.  He is measuring a little bit bigger than normal but nothing to be concerned about.  He is in the 60th percentile and she said they are usually only concerned if the baby is in the 90th percentile.  They estimate he is 4 pounds 5 oz.  What appears to be making the belly so large is I am at the high end for my ambiotic fluid.  She said when they measure, normal is between 8cm and 22cm and I am at 20.  She will send all the results to my doctor.  I am not exactly sure if they do anything for this.  There is sometimes a risk with high ambiotic fluid levels that the baby is not swallowing but all was good there.  They just said the baby has an olympic size pool to swim in.  Boy I feel like I am carrying a pool around with me.  She even said "I bet you are having diffculty breathing and getting around more so than other pregnant women do because of the high fluid."   Boy is that for sure.  Luckily I am not swelling up anywhere else like my ankles or hands.  I am all belly.  I feel so blessed to be pregnant that as long as the baby is doing good I will manage with my pool :-)

Happy Thursday
